Specs: ASTM-B-98 ASTM-B-124
UNS# C65500

Silicon Bronze C65500 (Bronze CDA 65500) is comprised of 95% Copper, with 4% Silicon and 1% Manganese to combine high strength and good hot and cold formability with excellent welding characteristics. Additionally, Silicon Bronze 65500 exhibits good resistance to corrosion by brine and sulfite solutions, non-oxidizing inorganic acids, alkalis, and other mixtures. The mechanical and chemical properties of Silicon Bronze 65500 are similar to those of stainless steels.

Silicon Bronzes are commonly used in the pump & valve component, fastener, piston ring, and marine hardware industries.
