Bronze Casting Alloy: Tin Bronze 903
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 Tin Bronze 903. Tin bronze alloy 903 is known for excellent soldering and good brazing capabilities, and fair machinability. Components of this alloy 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 as well as moveable bridge components. Tin bronze alloys, such as C903, are typically found in:
High-strength bushings & bearings
- Valve bodies
C90300 tin bronze castings are used for fixed and expansion bearings, where movement is slow or intermittent or heavy loads are present, such as turntables for bridges and heavy construction equipment.
Choosing Tin Bronze C90300 for Your Bronze Alloy Castings
Erie Bronze & Aluminum produces Tin Bronze 903 to meet casting material specifications:
- ASTM B 584: Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for General Applications
- ASTM B 763: 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: This Specification focuses on Cast Copper Alloys Used in Aerospace, Automotive, and Commercial Vehicle Industries.
Tin Bronze 903 characteristics give it an edge over other metals and metal alloys which makes it a versatile metal alloy for numerous fabrication practices.
