What is the difference between aluminum nickel bronze and martensitic aluminum nickel bronze?
One of the most notable differences between aluminum nickel bronze and martensitic aluminum nickel bronzeis that martensitic aluminum nickel bronze is stronger in yield and tensile due to its increased Fe (iron) content. The addition of 4+%Fe allows this allow to become thermally transformable or “heat treated” whereby a “martensitic phase” is created during a thermal soak and this phase is then “locked in” during a quenching process. The C63020 still carries very good corrosion resistance and is widely known in the Aerospace Landing Gear bushing and Oilfield subsea valve industries.
As one of the most durable products out there, nickel aluminum bronze works well in a range of different environments. To learn more about the benefits of C63020, contact the team from Busby Metals online today. You can also call them at 1 (800) 552-8729.
