Silicon Bronze Castings: Silicon Bronze 875
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 Silicon Bronze 875. The typical uses for Silicon Bronze alloy 875 include bearings, gears, impellers, propellers, valve stems, pump fixtures, valve bodies, and plumbing fixtures. This moderate strength alloys exhibits good corrosion resistance when submerged in liquids or chemicals making it an excellent choice for harsh environments.
Choosing Silicon Bronze 875 for Your Bronze Alloy Castings
Erie Bronze & Aluminum produces Silicon Bronze alloy 875 to meet various ASTM and SAE bronze casting material specifications:
- ASTM B 584: This specification covers requirements for copper alloy sand castings for general applications
- ASTM B 763: Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for Valve Applications
- SAE J462: This Specification focuses on Cast Copper Alloys Used in Aerospace, Automotive, and Commercial Vehicle Industries
Silicon Bronze 875 is an excellent alloy choice when the combination of strength and corrosion resistance are of upmost importance to your application. It is also commonly used as a substitute for leaded tin bronze alloys. The natural lubricity of the silicon gives this alloy excellent bearing and load properties.
