What’s up guys?!?!?! Michael with Michael Talks Metals back for some more Bronze basics. We’re back for the one hundred and thirty fourth episode in this series. For the last few weeks, we have been talking about popular Brass and Bronze alloys………

Today we are moving on to another Bronze. There are many types of “Bronze” depending on the alloying elements.

954 Bronze, UNS designation C95400 is classified as an Aluminum bronze… Aluminum is the major alloying element with lesser amounts of Iron, Nickel, and Manganese making up its chemical composition.

Most commonly a cast alloy with continuous cast bar stock or hollow bar used in machined parts.

Typically used in parts requiring its strength, corrosion, and wear resistance.

It can be heat treated to increase strength.

Chemical Composition – UNS C95400 – ASTM B505
Aluminum10.0 – 11.5 %
Iron3.0 – 5.0 %
Nickel1.5 % Maximum
Manganese0.50 % Maximum
Other0.50% Total Maximum
Copper83.0 % Minimum

Mechanical Properties for 1″ dia Round Bar 954 as Continuous Cast

32 KSI   Minimum Yield Strength

85 KSI   Minimum Tensile Strength

12 % Minimum Elongation

ASTM B505 for Continuous Cast Bar

ASTM B271 for Centrifugally Cast Hollow Bar

Castings of 954 Bronze are used in Aerospace, Marine, Military and Commercial applications with too many specifications and standards to list here. For the 134 th time, we remind you that specifications and part requirements can alter what we have shown you here today.
