Alloys Suitable for Offshore, Marine, and Oil and Gas Industries

Since 1961, Columbia Metals has been serving the marine and offshore industries. They possess one of the biggest stocks of non-ferrous alloys in Europe and their material is fully certified and traceable to its original source.

Columbia Metals’ efficient network of warehouses means that the material can be delivered anywhere in the world, whenever it is required.

They are able to supply material which is perfect for hostile environments, possessing:

  • Spark resistance
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Freedom from hydrogen embrittlement
  • Wear resistance
  • High strength
  • Low magnetic permeability
  • Dezincification resistance

In their field, the trademarked alloys from Columbia Metals, which are unique only to them, have proven themselves to be extremely successful. These findings are supported by thousands of repeat customers over many years.

COLDUR A® – Silicon Bronze

Combines toughness and strength, easy fabrication, good corrosion resistance, and low magnetic permeability. The classic marine hardware alloy.

NIBRON® – Extra High Strength Copper Nickel Silicon

Exceptional toughness, strength, and corrosion resistance. Ideal for high strength bolting and other critical aggressive subsea applications. The flagship alloy from Columbia Metals.

COLBRONZE® and COLPHOS 90® – Phosphor Bronze

Traditional marine applications for exposure to normal seawater environments. They provide good corrosion, strength, and wear resistance. Whilst COLPHOS 90® is a machinist’s dream, COLBRONZE® provides the most strength.

Alloys Suitable for Offshore, Marine, and Oil and Gas Industries

These are just a few of the recommended marine and offshore related alloys that Columbia Metals can supply. Columbia Metals have ISO 9001:2008 certification which is audited yearly by the British Standards Institute (BSI).

Their Quality Management System ensures they provide full batch traceability, only source material from quality mills, and provide a complete technical advisory and back up service.
