Home Products High Performance Alloys ToughMet Alloys Commercial Aerospace Components COPPER-NICKEL-TIN TOUGHMET® ALLOYS RELIABILITY IN AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS Materion Performance Alloys has more than 30 years of experience designing and commercializing alloys that have supported advances in the aerospace industry. ToughMet, high-strength alloys that resist wear, are used on all models and vintages of aircraft, enabling optimization of aircraft design, increasing reliability and improving performance. ToughMet alloy also has superior friction characteristics making it an ideal material for bearings and bushings in demanding applications, including aircraft landing gear and airfoil controls. TOUGHMET ALLOY ATTRIBUTES ToughMet alloy copper-nickel-tin alloys have a unique combination of properties that make them ideal for use in aerospace applications: High strength to handle heavy loads and stress Very low friction and minimal wear for higher reliability and longer component life Corrosion resistance to typical service environments High galling resistance for movement of parts, even under heavy loads Excellent machinability WATCH A VIDEO ABOUT USING TOUGHTMET ALLOYS FOR AEROSPACE HIGH STRENGTH AND RELIABILITY ToughMet alloy exhibits stable properties over the wide range of temperatures encountered during flight, and it operates safely for an extended period of time in the event of lubrication failure. And, it doesn’t contain lead or other hazardous materials. Aerospace material specifications are in place for all ToughMet tempers, and it is already an approved material used for all major commercial and military programs.
