- 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
- Wear rings
- Desalination components
