Why is CW617n better than MS58?

CW617n is a leaded copper steel alloy with a different chemical composition than MS58. Its main advantages include superior corrosion resistance, higher resistance to high temperatures, and greater resistance to stress corrosion cracking. Additionally, CW617n has better thermal conductivity than MS58, making it ideal for applications where heat transfer is important. Overall, CW617n is preferred in applications that require higher strength and greater durability in highly corrosive environments.

CW617n is commonly used in the production of valves and fittings for water and gas pipes, as well as in the HVAC and refrigeration industries. Due to its excellent corrosion resistance and machinability, it is widely used in the production of components for water and gas installations, especially in pipes, fittings, valves, and faucets.

In terms of strength, CW617n is a strong alloy with high resistance to corrosion and wear. It is commonly used in applications that require corrosion resistance, such as heating and cooling systems, water and gas installations, and other industrial applications.

Additionally, CW617n is a versatile alloy that can be used in a variety of environments. It is resistant to water, steam, compressed air, oils, and other chemicals, making it ideal for use in a wide range of applications.

Overall, CW617n is used in applications that require resistance to corrosion and wear, as well as in applications that involve the transfer of water, gas, or other liquids and gases.

CW617n is used in fittings for polypropylene (PPR) pipes. A wide range of welding techniques can be used to connect CW617n fittings to PPR pipes, such as heat welding or electrofusion welding. These techniques are efficient and safe, ensuring a strong and durable connection between fittings and pipes.

CW617n fittings are ideal for connecting PPR pipes due to their properties, such as corrosion resistance, durability, and ability to withstand high temperatures and pressures.
