DEF STAN 02-833 / NES 833 / DGS 1043
DEF STAN 02-833 / NES 833 / DGS 1043 is a nickel aluminium bronze similar in composition to CA104, but is manufactured to the more exacting requirements of the Ministry of Defence (Royal Navy). The MoD stipulate a nickel content that exceeds the iron content to improve the general corrosion performance. Additionally, a heat treatment may be required for smaller diameter rods to control the microstructure and phases present. Other requirements include a minimum impact value on sizes above 15mm diameter and a full ultrasonic inspection to conform to Grade 1 material. This grade has primarily been developed for offshore and marine applications and offers a high strength, an excellent corrosion resistance in seawater and other aggressive media and a high wear and abrasion resistance.
Primary uses for this material are Ministry of Defence applications, but are also often specified for use for other industries including Marine and Offshore.
