Out of many bronze alloys, manganese bronze find many applications. Manganese bronze alloys are designed to operate in higher loads and speeds. Available in solids, tubes, round rods, hex, square, flat, billets, ingots and rectangular forms, these alloys have excellent mechanical qualities and corrosion resistance. The major uses of these alloys are hardware, industrial products,fasteners, and marine products. C66800 manganese bronze composed of Cu, Al, Fe, Pb, Mn, Ni, Si, Sn and Zn; possess good hot and cold workability and forging ability. The C67300 manganese bronze alloy designed to SAE J461, J463 specification has 70 machinability rating, specific gravity, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, and density.
- C66800, C67000, C67300, C67600, C67400 and C67500 are available.
- Compared to steel and iron, such alloy has lower melting point.
