Exceptional strength, good wearing properties and good ductibility but has only fair machinability.
Full alloy description:
A.W. Fraser Alloy 863 is a high strength manganese bronze or high tensile brass conforming to the requirements of UNS C86300.
Alloy 863 has exceptional strength, good wearing pr operties and good ductility, but has poor machinability. It is suitable for extra heavy duty slow speed bearings with good lubrication and for hydraulic cylinder components.
Alloy 863 has reasonable corrosion resistance but may be susceptible to dezincification under certain conditions.
The composition of A.W. Fraser alloy 863 is strictly controlled as are the casting conditions. Alloy 863 products are manufactured using the latest continuous and centrifugal casting technology.
Machinability Rating: 25
SAE Grade: 430B
