AMS 4631 (UNS C64200) Silicon aluminum bronze combines the self lubricity of the silicon with the higher mechanical properties of aluminum bronze and is sometimes used in place of C63000 where specifications permit. C64200 is free-machining and has good anti-galling and anti-seizing properties. Typical applications involve valve stems, gears, marine and pole line hardware, wing pylons, bolts, nuts, bushings and valve body components.
