ALUMINIUM BRONZE ALLOYS

Aluminum Bronze alloys belong to a group of copper-based alloys that incorporate iron and nickel in their composition, with aluminum serving as the main alloying component. The inclusion of aluminum notably enhances the strength, comparable to that of medium carbon steel. Moreover, aluminum bronze offers outstanding corrosion resistance properties. This combination of strength and corrosion resistance led to the initial utilization of aluminum bronze.

The alloy of copper and aluminum is known for its single alpha phase with ductility and corrosion resistance. A higher aluminum content leads to the emergence of a beta phase. Aluminum Bronzes are versatile, offering strength, hardness, wear resistance, and more. Their properties, including resistance to oxidation and ease of weldability, expand their application possibilities.

Common Aluminum Bronze Alloys And Some Typical Applications

In the Aluminum Bronze family, there are two primary groups – Aluminum Bronze and Nickel Aluminum Bronze. Aluminum Bronze typically consists of around 9-14% aluminum and 4% iron, whereas Nickel Aluminum Bronze includes approximately 9-11% aluminum, 4% iron, and 5% nickel. The inclusion of nickel in the latter enhances the material's corrosion resistance, complementing its existing strength in this aspect.
