Description

2.1504 (CuNi14Al3) is an extra high strength copper nickel alloy developed by Columbia Metals that maximises both strength and corrosion resistance. Sometimes referred to as a nickel bronze, NIBRON® contains additions of aluminium, iron and manganese that join with the copper and nickel to achieve its exceptional properties. Although suited primarily to the tough extremes of marine or offshore oil and gas environments, Nibron® has also established itself for critical components in many other industrial sectors including aerospace, electrical, chemical and automotive. It shows the following features and properties:


  • Very high mechanical properties
  • Excellent wear and galling resistance
  • High ductility
  • Outstanding resistance to marine corrosion and erosion
  • Retention of properties at cryogenic temperatures
  • Exceptionally low magnetic permeability
  • Good machinability and dimensional stability
  • Good thermal conductivity
  • Equivalent Materials
