We cast a variety of non-leaded bronze alloys for many different industries. All metals are alloyed in house using our SPECTROLAB metal analyzer to meet your exact specification. Applications range from bearings and gears to plumbing goods and intricately shaped pump and valve component manufacturing. Our foundry pours the following bronze alloys:
Aluminum Bronze Castings (952, 953, 954, 955, 958)
These aluminum bronze alloys are wear resistant and exhibit good welding characteristics as well as exceptional mechanical properties. They withstand corrosion in many environments including seawater, chlorides, and dilute acids. These alloys are considered non-sparking and suitable for equipment designed to handle explosives, petroleum, chemical and gas products. Aluminum bronze alloys containing more than 10% aluminum can be heat treated to boost their mechanical properties.
Manganese Bronze Castings (862, 863, 865)
The strongest of all cast copper alloys, these alloys are used mainly for heavy duty mechanical products requiring moderately good corrosion resistance at a reasonable cost. These alloys not only have high tensile and yield strength, but can operate under very high loads and speeds which makes them a great alloy for your bearing needs.
Tin Bronze Castings (903, 905, 907, 911)
Tin bronze alloys are known for good corrosion resistance, reasonably high strength, good wear resistance, and a lower coefficient of friction when compared to steel. They are capable of accepting shock and impact loads, but with reduced surface speeds which makes them an excellent choice for high strength bushing and bearing applications as well as moveable bridge components.
Silicon Bronze Castings (875)
These moderate strength alloys exhibit good corrosion resistance when submerged in liquids or chemicals. Applications range from bearings and gears to plumbing goods and intricately shaped pump and valve component manufacturing.
