ToughMet® High-Strength Alloys

The properties of Materion Performance Alloys’ high strength, spinodally-hardened ToughMet copper-nickel-tin alloys provide many advantages in demanding end-use applications ranging from aerospace sleeve and spherical bearings to industrial bearings like heavy equipment wear plates or transmission thrust washers.

ToughMet alloys are lead and beryllium free and show excellent corrosion and stress corrosion cracking resistance in sea water, chlorides and sulfides.

TOUGHMET ADVANTAGES

ToughMet provides

  •     high strength
  •     corrosion resistance
  •     lubricity 
  •     wear resistance under severe loading conditions

In comparative sleeve bearing tests against a hardened steel shaft, ToughMet showed unprecedented performance for a metallic bearing material.

FORMS AND TYPES AVAILABLE 

ToughMet is available in plate, rod, tube, bar and wire as well as a variety of cast shapes.
