C95900 Aluminum Bronze Alloy

C95900 aluminum bronze is a durable alloy that works well in high-load applications. It also handles abrasive conditions well when paired with hardened steels.

Because C95900 is very durable, it is often used in gears and worm drives. Other applications include:

  • Aluminum Bronze Bearings
  • Aluminum Bronze Bushings
  • Aluminum Bronze Gears
  • Aluminum Bronze High Strength Clamps
  • Aluminum Bronze Pawls
  • Aluminum Bronze Valve Bodies
  • Aluminum Bronze Valves

Diversified Bronze has solid and cored bronze bars in 144" lengths. Other lengths and non-standard sizes are available.

Technical details

C95900 is made up of 82.5% copper, 13% aluminum, and 4.5% iron. The best welding techniques include:

  • Brazing
  • Carbon Arc
  • Coated-metal arc
  • Gas-shielded arc
  • Soldering
