Silicon Bronze Screws, Fasteners and Fixings
Silicon Bronze fasteners are known for their corrosion resistance, and they are often found in naval construction because of this. Brine, sulphite solutions and gases to not cause silicon bronze to deteriorate or corrode.
They are generally used in woodworking and the construction of wooden boats and preferred over the likes of copper due to its natural beauty – which in turn enhances the value of sea crafts. It can, however, be found in sewage disposal too.
In some instances, they can be used in general construction, refineries, and the power and energy industry.
In marine settings, silicon bronze fixings are favoured over stainless or other metals due to its superior resistance to corrosion, strength and durability. The alloy contains copper, tin and a small amount of silicon.
