AMS 4625 (C51000)

A lower strength, wrought hardened copper alloy used in electrical, fastener and industrial applications.

AMS 4625 is a tin bronze that contains copper, tin, and phosphorous. The tin increases corrosion resistance and strength, while the phosphorous increases wear resistance and stiffness.. It has moderate strength, corrosion resistance and good bearing properties.

C51000 is one of the most widely used phosphor bronzes, owing to its unique combination of properties. It has many uses within the aerospace industry, including bushings, landing gear parts, washers and track bearings.
