Bronze Alloys from Thames Stockholders




Suitable for a broad range of applications which are under medium loads whilst using adequate lubrication, SAE660 is a continuously cast leaded copper-based alloy known as a leaded bronze. It is highly suited to pump and valve component manufacture due to the alloy’s reasonable resistance to brine. SAE660 offers good sliding and dry running properties and is not subject to dezincification.

SAE660 also benefits from excellent machinability.

  • Valve and slide seating rings, hydraulics
  • Fuel and water pump bushes
