Aluminum bronze is the highest strength copper based alloy and has excellent corrosion resistance. Aluminum bronze alloys feature excellent wear resistance and heavy load carrying ability, making them ideal for heavy-duty applications. The alloys are considered to be non-sparking and suitable for equipment designed to handle explosives, petroleum, chemical and gas products. Alloys with more than 10% aluminum content can be heat treated, further increasing their tensile strength.
C64200 is an engineering alloy at least as resistant to corrosion as copper itself, but much stronger. It is considered to be of the best valve stem alloys.
The most common cast aluminum bronze, C95400 is used in many heavy duty, high load and high wear applications. Good tensile strength, ductility, weldability and resistance to fatigue. Typical applications include worm gears, bushings, pump parts and bearings.
C95900 Aluminum Bronze has good strength and corrosion resistance. Typical uses include gears, worm drives, valve guides and seats.
