BRASS RODS AND BARS FOR GENERAL APPLICATIONS

The brass rods and bars produced by LAROMET are obtained by hot extrusion and cold drawn processes, depending on the requirements, in a wide range of sizes and shapes. Due to their high resistance to wear and corrosion, brass bars have many uses in various industries

Applications

  • Lids, rivets
  • High tensile machine parts, bearings, parts for gear boxes, cylinders, valves, slideways
  • Components for aircrafts, bolts, nuts, propeller shafts, rivets, valves, bearings, bushings
  • Forging, mechanical processing, manufacture of components for hydraulic and mechanical engineering industry
  • Forged pistons for water pumps, gears, components for axial piston pumps, bushings, bearings
