Manganese Bronze Castings: Manganese Bronze 862
Erie Bronze & Aluminum is a non-ferrous sand casting foundry, specializing in bronze alloy castings. Serving numerous industries, we cast a variety of non-leaded bronze alloys, including Manganese Bronze 862. Manganese Bronze properties include tough and corrosion-resistant characteristics that are ideal for high load, low-speed applications requiring a combination of outstanding wear characteristics and high bearing strength. Its typical uses include manganese bushings and bearings, gears, marine castings, marine racing propellers, and gun mounts. Manganese Bronze's properties make 862 a top choice for these applications.
Choosing Manganese Bronze 862 for Your Manganese Bronze Castings
Erie Bronze & Aluminum produces Manganese Bronze alloy 862 to meet several ASME, ASTM, and SAE bronze casting material specifications:
- ASTM B584: Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for General Applications
- ASTM B763: Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for Valve Applications
- SAE J461: Used for cast copper alloys to maintain the electrical and thermal conductivity properties, mechanical properties, yield strength, fatigue characteristics, formability, and machinability of these alloys
- SAE J462: Focuses on Cast Copper Alloys Used in Aerospace, Automotive, and Commercial Vehicle Industries
Manganese Bronze 862 is used mainly for heavy-duty mechanical products requiring moderately good corrosion resistance at a reasonable cost. Manganese Bronze properties include not only high tensile and yield strengths, but also the ability to operate under very high loads and speeds, making 862 a great alloy for your manganese bronze bushing and bearing needs.
