Brush Wellman’s ToughMet copper-nickel-tin products exhibit high strength as well as wear and corrosion resistance. Two grades of ToughMet 3 AT110 rod/tube and TS160 rod/bar are included in the Metallic Materials Properties Development & Standardization (MMPDS) Handbook, which contains FAA-approved design allowables for metals and alloys used in aerospace vehicles. The design limits specified for the alloys were calculated after extensive testing on multiple lots of production material; testing included mechanical strength design properties, elastic properties, and physical properties. ToughMet 3 has good tribological characteristics and is well suited for bearing and bushing designs in demanding applications such as aircraft landing gear and airfoil controls, and elsewhere where high strength and wear resistance are required.
