Nickel Aluminum Bronze Material Profile

Posted by Dave Olsen on 2/22/16 4:34 PM



  • Nickel Aluminum Bronze Alloys


  • This group of alloys contains nickel and is primarily selected where a combination of high strength, corrosion resistance and resistance to cavitation and erosion damage is required.

Properties – Why select this material

  • Alloys of both the aluminum bronze family and the nickel aluminum bronze family possess excellent machinability, are easily weldable, and can be successfully joined to many other dissimilar alloys.
  • Aluminum bronze alloys are stronger than 300 series stainless steels. (Tensile of 90 ksi compared to 70 ksi for 304 / 316 stainless)
  • They perform particularly well under stagnant conditions, because resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion attack is superior to that of the 300 series stainless steels.

Applications – Frequent uses

  • Components in seawater service
  • Propellers
  • Wear rings
  • Desalination components
