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 yellowy gold metal consisting mainly of copper and zinc. The copper content is usually in the range of 55-70%. The addition of zinc to copper results in a metal of increased strength and hardness when compared to unalloyed copper. Brass is a highly machinable, form-able and corrosion resistant metal. Commonly used for plumbing fittings, architectural hardware, fasteners and many more machined parts.

Bronze

Bronze alloys are the metals consisting of 80 - 95% copper with the balance made up of one or more other metals, such as tin, silicon, nickel, aluminium, iron, zinc or manganese. Bronze is a favoured material when strength and corrosion resistance are called for. Kormax casting capabilities include Continuous casting and Centrifugal casting. Continuous casting can be produce diameters from 1″/25mm up to 10″/254mm as well as square and rectangular profiles. Alternatively, Centrifugal Casting can achieve diameters from 8″/203mm up to  18″/3000mm spun bronze castings. In addition to these methods Kormax can also source Extruded Bronze. Extrusion achieves a more consistent grain structure and better tensile strength consistency than other casting methods. Extruded Bronze is generally performed for highly critical components such as Aircraft undercarriage components. Bronze is a versatile and commonly used material because it comes in many Bronze alloys and compositions. Bronze is strong and versatile, making it the material of choice for many sacrificial bushings. Bronze bushings and wear pads have long lifespans and resist shock, impact, wear and corrosion. They require an external lubricant, for example grease or oil, at installation and during operation to reduce friction and wear. Kormax is a trustworthy partner for large Bronze Alloy castings with over 70 years Foundry experience. Our expertise include alloy selection, component design, manufacturing and semi-finished material supply. With a large stock of Inventory Kormax is well equipped for rapid and large-scale production.

Composite

Polyester Composite contains unique properties to achieve self-lubrication, strength while being environmentally friendly. Kormax Composite is laminated polymer materials made by impregnating textiles with thermosetting resins. Solid lubricants are added to the resin to provide evenly dispersed lubrication throughout the material. Kormax offers multiple textile, lubrication, and resin combinations to provide the most suitable material for your application. Our dedicated team will help you choose which Kormax material will best fit your specific application, taking into consideration the type of environment, amount of load, speed of moving parts, and temperature among other factors.
