Manganese bronze was selected by a designer of offshore drilling equipment because of its superior corrosion resistance in sea water and excellent strength. The industry yield strength specification for the material is 60 ksi, but this customer’s application demanded 70 ksi. MetalTek was able to modify a standard industry alloy and manage the manufacturing process, including innovative in-processing testing for each heat of metal, to consistently meet the higher standard. This eliminated scrap and rework, which saved time and cost, and provided the customer with the superior product they needed.
