Aluminum bronzes offer:

  • Higher strength and corrosion resistant than other bronze alloys
  • Tarnish resistant
  • Corrosion resistant in sea water

Aluminum bronze alloys provide low oxidation rates at high temperatures and low reactivity with sulfurous compounds and other exhaust products of combustion. As such, they are commonly used for:

  • Plain bearings
  • Engine components (especially for sea-going ships)
  • Underwater fastenings in naval architecture
  • Ship propellers
  • Pump and valve components
