Renowned for standing up to corrosion and abrasion, Bronze Alloy 938 may be the optimal material for applications where long service life is paramount. Enhance performance with cast components produced from this material by U.S. Bronze Foundry & Machine.
Benefits Of Bronze Alloy 938
This bronze alloy is comprised primarily of copper, tin, and lead. Unlike other grades, however, the material features elevated levels of nickel that boost strength and ductility. Also called C93800 or Highly Leaded Tin Bronze, it resists corrosion, tolerates interrupted lubrication, and overcomes dirt particles embedded into its surface. This goes a long way to protecting mating parts.
- Good Degradation Resistance
- Easily Machinable
- Strong Wear Resistance
- Excellent Antifriction Qualities
