Materials

Wide range of Engineering Materials including Aluminium, Bronzes, Brass, Coppers, Cast Irons, Plastics and Composites. Wide range of grades and profiles available for most materials including Solid Round, Hollow Round, Flats, Sheet and Tube.

Aluminium

Aluminium is a silvery white, non-magnetic, ductile, soft metal. It is a chemical element in the boron group. Structural components made from Aluminium are vital to the transportation, aerospace and construction sectors, due to its low density and corrosion resistant properties.

Brass

Kormax offers a range of Brass extruded alloys in various profiles. Brass is a bright yellow/gold metal composed primarily of copper and zinc. Copper content is typically between 55 and 70 percent. When zinc is added to copper, it produces a metal with greater strength and hardness than unalloyed copper. Brass is a metal that is highly machinable, formable, and corrosion resistant. Plumbing fittings, architectural hardware, fasteners, and a variety of other machined parts are common applications.

Bronze

Bronze alloys are metals that are 80-95 percent copper with the remainder made up of one or more other metals such as tin, silicon, nickel, aluminium, iron, zinc, or manganese. When strength and corrosion resistance are required, bronze is a preferred material. Kormax's casting capabilities include continuous casting and centrifugal casting. Continuous casting can produce diameters ranging from 1″/25mm to 10″/254mm, as well as square and rectangular profiles. Centrifugal casting can achieve diameters ranging from 8″/203mm to 18″/3000mm for spun bronze castings. Kormax can also obtain Extruded Bronze in addition to these methods. Extrusion produces a more consistent grain structure as well as higher tensile strength consistency than other casting methods. Extruded Bronze is typically used for highly critical components such as as aircraft undercarriage components. Bronze is a versatile and widely used material due to the wide range of bronze alloys and compositions. Because bronze is both strong and versatile, it is commonly used for sacrificial bushings. Bronze bushings and wear pads have a long service life and are resistant to shock, impact, wear, and corrosion. To reduce friction and wear, they require an external lubricant, such as grease or oil, both during installation and operation. Kormax, with over 70 years of Foundry experience, is a reliable partner for large Bronze Alloy castings. Alloy selection, component design, manufacturing, and semi-finished material supply are among our areas of expertise. Kormax is well equipped for rapid and large-scale production due to its large inventory.<

Composite

Polyester Composite contains unique properties that allow it to be self-lubricating and strong while still being ecologically benign. Kormax Composite is a type of laminated polymer material created by impregnating fabrics with thermosetting resins. Solid lubricants are added to the resin to provide evenly dispersed lubrication throughout the material. Kormax provides a variety of textile, lubricant, and resin combinations to deliver the best material for your application. Our experienced team will assist you in determining which Kormax material will best suit your specific application, taking into account the kind of environment, amount of load, speed of moving parts, and temperature, among other factors.
