Bronze BS1400 LG4 is a kind of Leaded Gunmetal Bronze or also known as “Red Brass”. It is relatively low-cost and have a good combination of castability, machinability and strength. This type of bronze offers excellent bearing properties. It also has excellent wear resistance at normal lubrication, high resistance to seizure and good corrosion resistance.
Typical applications of LG4 include pressure tight requirements, valve and pump bodies, pump impellers, bushings and general engineering applications.
LG4 has relatively similar physical and chemical characteristics to LG2, only that LG4 has higher tensile and yield strengths than LG2.
We offer LG4 in solid round bar and hollow round bar/bushing.
