Aluminum-Bronze

What are the applications of Aluminum Bronze ?

Aluminum bronze is a type of copper alloy in which aluminum is the primary alloying element added to the copper. This stands in contrast to standard bronze or brass, in which the alloying elements are tin and zinc, respectively. Aluminum enhances copper by imparting oxidation resistance in the form of a thin, tightly adherent aluminum oxide film. Other metals such as manganese, nickel, silicon, and iron can be added to aluminum bronze to further enhance strength or anti-corrosive properties.
