ToughMet Copper-Nickel-Tin Alloys

ToughMet, a trademarked family of copper-nickel-tin alloys developed by Materion Corporation, is well-regarded for its exceptional mechanical properties. These alloys are characterized by their impressive strength, remarkable wear resistance, and favorable machinability. ToughMet alloys find application in scenarios where conventional copper or bronze alloys might fall short in providing the necessary blend of strength and wear resistance. They are particularly valued in industries such as aerospace, defense, oil and gas, mining, and heavy equipment manufacturing. These alloys are chosen to meet the demanding requirements of components subjected to abrasive wear, high loads, and corrosive environments, where their non-sparking capabilities and thermal stability are also advantageous. Some of these alloys can exceed 140 ksi in tensile strength.
