Silicon Bronze C65500 bolts are a popular fastening option thanks to their corrosion resistance, high strength, and malleability. Crafted from a combination of copper and silicon, this type of material also contains trace amounts of zinc, tin, manganese, and lead. It features at least 95% copper with 4-5% silicon and small portions of the aforementioned elements. Silicon bronze is most desirable for its unique combination of strength with excellent machinability for cutting and bending. Its distinctive color range gives the bolts an added aesthetic to bolt applications outdoors or in coastal environments.
C65500 Silicon Bronze Bolt is an alloy created from Copper, Silicon, and Tin. It offers excellent electrical conductivity and very high resistance to corrosion in saltwater environments, making it the perfect choice for marine applications. In terms of mechanical properties, it is a stronger material than standard bronze alloys, allowing for use in bolted applications as fasteners, including bolts, nuts, and screws. This includes potential uses in kitchen fixtures for their corrosion resistance and strength or even cable ties due to their superior resilience compared to other materials. Silicon Bronze C65500 maintains excellent corrosion protection on both interior and exterior components combined with its strength while having much lower costs associated with machining and forming processes due to its increased ductility--making it a cost-effective option in the right environment.
