The following components are made with SMS-167: our own unique, superior quality alloy. As a result, these parts resist more corrosion, last longer, and perform better than products made using Beryllium Copper alloys. While these are our most popular SMS-167 components, any other parts made with BeCu in our catalogue can also be made with SMS-167 upon request.
