Silicon Bronze AMS 4616
AMS 4616 is a special high strength silicon bronze; the additional iron content provides added strength in conjunction with the self lubricity of the silicon for excellent bearing and load properties. AMS 4616 / C65620 is easily machined into ball bearing cage assemblies.
Typical Uses for AMS 4616 Silicon Bronze:
ELECTRICAL: Transistor Component Bases, High Resistance-Ratio Cryogenic Shunts, Bus Conductors, Wave Guides, Hollow Conductors, Anodes for Vacuum Tubes, Coaxial Cable, Coaxial Tube, Klystrons, Microwave Tubes, Bus Bars, Lead-in Wire, Vacuum Seals, Conductors, Glass-to-Metal Seals
AUTOMOTIVE: Automotive Rectifiers
