C87610 Alloy Casting

C87610 Alloy

C87610 or Cast Copper Silicon is a silicon bronze alloy known for its excellent finish, color, machinability, and superior corrosion resistance. High corrosion resistance makes C87610 a good choice for water, air, and salt-spray environments. It has excellent machinability properties that are comparable to steel and aluminum alloys.

Silicon, the most abundant metalloid element on Earth, provides an effective barrier to hydrogen ions. The addition of silicon in this alloy helps keep the metal from rusting when it comes into contact with moisture or salt water. 

C87610 Alloy Applications
C87610 is commonly used to make parts and products, including sculpture, art, decorative pieces, pump components, and valve stems.
