Types of Copper Base/Non-Ferrous Cast Alloys

Silicon bronze alloys provide good resistance to corrosion in brine applications. They are commonly used for:

  • Pump and valve components
  • Fasteners
  • Marine hardware

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

Tin bronzes provide:

  • Good mechanical resistance
  • Good corrosion resistance
  • Wear resistant

Applications for tin bronze alloys include:

  • Seal rings
  • Bushings
  • Bearings
  • Valve components

Copper/nickel alloys offer:

  • Good cryogenic properties
  • High thermal conductivity without loss in ductility
  • Good corrosion resistance in marine applications
  • Antifouling properties
  • Low magnetic permeability

Copper/nickel alloys are ideal for:

  • Minesweeping equipment
  • Pump and valve components
  • Heavy-duty marine pump and piping applications
