A Comprehensive Range of Tin Alloys
Our range of industrial use Tin Alloys have been carefully considered to ensure all customers’ requirements are met, whether they require corrosion-resistance, high temperature, magnetic or conductive properties and many more.
All alloys primarily contain tin, lead & bismuth with additions of antimony, cadmium, copper, silver & zinc, and are commonly used in thrust or journal type plain bearings. You would find Tin Alloys in high speed and load applications, such as automotive and aero engines, marine transmission assemblies, heavy machinery such as crushers and power generation turbines.
William Rowland also produces on site a complete range of BS3332 White Metals, BS EN ISO 9453:2014 Soft Solders and other alloys such as Babbitt, Bend, Bearing, Blowpipe, Field, Rose, Press & Wood.
Babbitt and White Metal Tin Alloys
Tin based White Metal bearing alloys (Babbitt) are manufactured on-site from high-grade primary metals. Such alloys offer an unmatched combination of excellent load carrying, friction resistance, run in and ease of fabrication characteristics. They also offer the ability to hold an oil film and operate in the absence of adequate lubrication. The white metals dual-phase properties are harder and contain low friction particles that are held in a soft, malleable matrix.
We can produce to BS 3332, ASTM B-23 or NES specifications or alternatively customers may specify a custom alloy. To find out more, get in touch by calling our team or filling out an enquiry form.
