Bushings employed in everyday applications like bridges and dams may go largely unnoticed. But they provide essential wear surfaces and carry very heavy loads in environments where long term performance is critical. Customers come to MetalTek for these components to leverage our industry-leading bronze alloy expertise. Bushings are installed in environments subject to corrosion from salt or other water-borne minerals and particles, yet must perform flawlessly for decades. The centrifugal casting process provides a superior product and is available in sizes for every application, from small to very large – in excess of 15’ diameter. MetalTek also provides net shaped chain link components from continuous cast nickel aluminum bronze material for corrosion resistance in lock and dam applications.
