DESCRIPTION

AMPCO® 45 is a high strength alloy with mechanical properties that, due to its special manufacturing process, exceed the range of commercial nickel-aluminium bronzes.

APPLICATION

AMPCO® 45 is particularly useful in applications involving abrasive wear, friction, deformation, chemical erosion, including:

• Aircraft bearings / bushings
• Pump and marine shafts and wear rings
• Valve spindles and seats
• Machine tool parts

AMPCO® 45 has spark-resistance properties, making it suitable for safety tools and machine tool components in explosive environments.
