Different names for CuSn6 :
- German (DIN): CuSn6
- France (Afnor): CuSn6P
- Europe (EN): CW452K
- ASTM : C51900
CuSn6 and its properties :
CuSn6 has several properties common to all bronzes such as high mechanical and electrical characteristics. CuSn6 has good electrical conductivity, wear resistance and resistance to industrial atmosphere. It is also resistant to seawater and is largely insensitive to stress corrosion cracking.
It has a very good cold deformation and average deformation when hot. It has good machining, welding and brazing capabilities.
The bronze CuSn6P can be used instead of brass in the vacuum technique. See technical data sheet for CuSn6 bronze.
|Hot deformability||Very low|
|Cold reduction before annealing||70% max|
Machinability (Basic reference: brass from
bar turning CuZn39Pb2 =100)
|Arc welding in a gaseous atmosphere||Good|
|Arc welding with coated wire electrode||Medium|
|Electric resistance welding :|
|Placed end to end||Excellent|
|Corrosion resistance :|
CuSn6 bronze is an alloy used in industry and mechanical engineering for the manufacture of stamped and bent parts, connectors, pins, springs, watch hands, in heating applications, resistance wires and other applications with high mechanical requirements for corrosion resistance.
