threaded insert / round
Inserts made from this material are ideal for salt water applications and have superior corrosion resistance over 304 Stainless Steel and Inconel X-750, although it is not as strong as either material. It has a tensile strength of approximately 140,000 PSI and a hardness of HRB 95. Phosphor Bronze inserts are also used in applications requiring very low magnetic permeability (< 1.0 G/O), low electrical connectivity and conductivity, and they can be used in environments up to 572℉. Typical applications Include Naval vessels, aircraft instrumentation paper and textile manufacturing, automotive systems, mining and drilling equipment, pumps and valves, and electrical connectors. The insert material is covered by specification AMS7247.
