Elcas, situated in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), is a leading stockholder in ferrous and non-ferrous metals. During our 65 year history we have been able to expand our cast iron and bronze product range with aluminium bronze, brass, copper alloys and Concast 954. Our materials are mostly used in the machine building, hydraulics or moulding industry. Due to our extensive stock and broad range of cutting machines we are able to deliver “just in time” to every corner in the world.
Elcas is the exclusive representative / distributor for Concast material in Europe. Concast 954 and Concast 959 are characterized by and stand out from the European aluminium bronzes by their extreme high strain level. Concast 954 and Concast 959 have a very fine uniform material structure, an exceptionally good wear resistance and is very suitable for heavy mechanical applications. Besides these characteristics both alloys keep their mechanical values even with high temperatures (till ca. 350º C), an area where most other bronze alloys will not be applicable anymore. Concast 954 and Concast 959 correspond with respectively ASTM B505 C95400 and ASTM B505 C95900, both continuously cast alloys.
Besides Concast 954 and Concast 959 we can also provide you with other extruded aluminium bronzes like C62400 and C62900.
General applications for Concast 954 and Concast 959 are namely:
- spur gears, pickling hooks and baskets
- valve components
