AG Bimetal is produced by casting molten bronze onto ferrous metals. When this is performed on a high-strength material such as steel, a high-performance bearing capability is added, making it a perfect composite material for certain applications. The integrity of the bond (bonding strength) is very high; such a composite material can, therefore, be used under the most severe conditions relating to high pressure, high speed applications. A wide variety of bronzes can be bonded to all kinds of ferrous metals, such as gray iron, ductile iron, carbon steel, and special steel. When bronze is bonded onto specific areas of a complicated cast iron part, entirely new mechanisms can be created.
