Our Markets

The Aluminium-Bronze used in naval industry, rigging, offshore, petrochemical industry…

Aluminium-Bronze alloys are characterized by high resistance to various forms of marine corrosion, erosion, cavitation, stress corrosion cracking, and corrosion fatigue. They are indispensable in the production of mechanical components that must withstand corrosion or cavitation, such as butterfly valves, servo motor gears, and boat propellers. Cupro-Aluminium is used in firefighting equipment, water and sanitation markets, and in the manufacture of rigging components, leisure and sports boat equipment. Cupro-Aluminium also exhibits excellent performance in various chemical environments. The castability of Cupro-Aluminium allows for the production of components in diverse and varied shapes..

Bronze, like stainless steel, is extremely strong and corrosion-resistant. Turnbuckle cages made of Aluminium-Bronze significantly reduce the risk of thread seizing under high loads. A crucial feature for a more efficient and durable product. Our chrome-plated Aluminium-Bronze turnbuckles equip the rigging of sailboats that navigate the oceans. Another demonstration of the alloy’s resilience !

Aluminium-Bronze Parts for the Electricity and Energy Sector

Security Aluminium-Bronze CuAl10Fe2 for Electrical Components 

The electrical characteristics combined with the high mechanical properties of Aluminium-Bronze CuAl10Fe2 make it a suitable material for electrical applications and connectivity. It is valuable in high-voltage substation connections, connection equipment for medium and low voltage networks, not to mention connectors in industrial and railway installations.

Grounding is an essential element for the quality and safety of your installations. The characteristics of Aluminium-Bronze meet specifications in grounding circuits, making this alloy an efficient means of current flow while avoiding the effects of lightning strikes.

High-end finishes

Aluminium-Bronze is commonly used for appearance components. Some non-exhaustive examples of applications include: the stirrups of the Republican Guard, components for culinary articles, hinges for luxury showcases and building entrances, decorative pieces for lampposts, and components for luxury luggage.

Aluminium-Bronze alloys are infinitely recyclable, without any alteration or loss of performance. This makes them a significant ecological asset across various industrial sectors.




Did you know ?

la statue de la liberté

In New York, the Statue of Liberty was crafted by French artisans using over 80 tonnes of copper sourced from the copper mines of Visnes on the island of Karmøy, near Stavanger in Norway. Copper was a natural choice due to the long journey from France to America and its resistance to marine atmospheres. Since 1886, the statue, made of natural copper, has been protected from corrosion through the development of its distinctive green patina.
