Bronze Castings: Manganese Bronze 865
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 865. Manganese Bronze 865’s microstructure and corrosion-resistant
characteristics are ideal for parts requiring strength and toughness. Manganese bronze alloys
can operate under very high loads and speeds. Its typical uses include brackets, gears, lever arms, machinery parts requiring strength and toughness, salt and fresh water components, and valve stems. Manganese Bronze 865’s elemental structure make this alloy a superior choice for these applications.
Choosing Manganese Bronze 865 for Your Bronze Alloy Castings
Erie Bronze & Aluminum produces Manganese Bronze 865 to meet several ASTM and SAE
casting material specifications:
- ASTM B 763: Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for Valve Applications
- ASTM B 584: Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for General 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: This Specification is Focused on Cast Copper Alloys Used in Aerospace, Automotive, and Commercial Vehicle Industries
Manganese Bronze 865 characteristics give it an edge over other metals and metal alloys which
makes it a versatile metal alloy for numerous fabrication practices. Soldering and brazing of
Manganese Bronze 865 is fair, as opposed to other Manganese Bronze alloys, which is typically
poor. For more information about Manganese Bronze 865 and its capabilities and properties,
