Bronze Alloys

Bronze alloys primarily consist of copper and tin plus the addition of other metals (such as aluminum, manganese, nickel or zinc). Alloys like this can be harder than copper alone, or have other useful properties, like machinabilty, ductility, and stiffness.

Bronze alloys can be supplied as bronze castingsbronze extrusions, and bronze forgings. They also have different compositions and mechanical strengths and are used for many different applications. We carry several different types of bronze alloys, which we have listed below.

Architectural Bronze Alloys (C38000 & C38500)

These alloys are generally used for architectural parts and products but can be used for industrial and electric shapes and parts, which are primarily supplied as bronze extrusions. The applications for architectural bronze alloys include:

  • Molding & Trim Shapes
  • Door & Window Frames
  • Elevator Sills
  • Columns
  • Tread Plates
  • Skirting Shapes
  • Door Handles
  • Hand Railings
  • Balusters
  • Decorative Parts
  • And More

Bronze Casting Alloys

Standard bronze alloys are widely used for many applications from architectural to many different industrial uses. There are certain alloys that have specific properties that are required for your intended application. These alloys can be supplied as bronze castings and bronze forgings. Some of their applications include:

  • Pump Housings & Parts
  • Valve Bodies & Parts
  • Fire Sprinkler Frames
  • Fire Sprinkler Parts
  • Architectural decorative Parts
  • Marine Parts
  • Sporting Equipment Parts
  • Bushings and bearings
  • And More

High Tensile Bronze (Manganese Bronzes)

These alloys combine high strength with excellent wear and corrosions resistance and exhibit good hot forging properties. These parts can be produced as bronze castings, forgings, or extrusions. Some of their various industrial uses include:

  • Valve & Pump Parts
  • Gears
  • Nuts & Bolts
  • Non-Spark Tools & Parts
  • Bushings & Various Other Parts

Aluminum Bronzes

Used when high strength and good corrosion resistance is required. These are generally supplied as bronze castings and bronze forgings. Aluminum bronzes can generally be seen in the following industries and applications:

  • General Sea Water Related Services
  • Water supply Industry
  • Aircraft engine and mechanical parts
  • Oil & Petrochemical Industry
  • Specialized Anti-Corrosive Applications
  • Wear plates and parts
  • Glass bottle manufacturing
  • Structural Building Applications

Corrosion Resistant Bronzes (Naval Bronzes)

These alloys have excellent resistance to marine atmospheres and good general corrosion resistance. It also provides excellent hot forging capabilities. Naval bronzes are generally supplied as bronze castings and bronze forgings. Their industrial applications include:

  • Welding Rods
  • Condenser Plates
  • Valve Stems & Balls
  • Bearings
  • Bushings
  • Architectural parts
  • Marine parts
  • Structural Applications
