• Stainless steel 316 (1.4401)
• Aluminium 7075-T7351
• N52 Neodymium (NdFeB) magnets
The materials ensure a very light and corrosion resistant product.
Stainless steel S316 is marine-grade austenitic stainless steel which means it has a very high resistance to corrosion.
Aluminium grade AL7075-T7351 is aerospace quality aluminium, and one of the highest strength aluminium alloys available, with a 45% higher yield strength that austenitic stainless steels.
Carbon-fibre is exceptionally light, almost as light as any plastic, but immensely strong and stiff. The weight of carbon-fibre is about 60% that of aluminium.
N52 is presently the most powerful grade of Neodymium.
The corrosion resistance of the product is extremely important to guarantee the long-life of the bipod.
The aluminium is protected by hard black anodising. This is a very robust and durable surface treatment. This coating is harder than tool steel, with hardness of 65 Rockwell C where hardness is required for dimensional stability combined with longevity.
Engineering Excellence – Near Uncompromised Quality
It is regarded that the quality of the bipod is close to the best possible, through design, exceptional dimensional accuracy and repeatability, material properties and quality control, all in-line with the best-in-class from the aerospace industry.
