Original Press Release:
C63020 AMS 4590 Now Available from National Bronze Mfg.
Roseville, MI – National Bronze Mfg. Co. is excited to announce the addition of alloy C63020 AMS 4590 Nickel Aluminum Bronze to their product line. Alloy C63020 is used extensively in aircraft landing gear systems for various bushings and bearings.
C63020 is a fairly complex material, and during manufacture require good control of the metal structure by attention to the composition and heat treatment. C63020 AMS 4590 is a martensitic product that is strengthened by heat treatment. The iron content of C63020 is higher than C63000. This alloy is used in applications where higher strength is required but reduced elongation and ductility is applicable.
The excellent bearing properties against steel, corrosion resistance in salt conditions during de-icing of runways in winter and high mechanical properties makes C63020 ideal for landing gear applications. C63020 is generally used for loads greater than alloy C63000 AMS 4640 can handle. This alloy has great load bearing capacity as well as great wear resistance.
