Bronze bars are often used in landing gear parts.

High Strength & Toughness

Smiths MRO stocks an extensive range of bronze alloys in the form of round bars, known for their high strength and toughness.

Bronze bars find significant use in landing gear parts on aircraft. The most commonly used bronze alloy for aerospace applications is aluminium bronze, which we stock in various specifications.

CA104 / BS B23 - one of the bronze alloys we hold in stock in a broad range. This British specification is related to DTD197A and often accepted as an alternative to the DTD specification. Our BS B23 stock in round bars ranges from 0.25” up to 8” in diameter.

AMS 4640 (C63000) - a nickel aluminium bronze and popular specification in the landing gear market. Again our range is in round bars from 0.5” up to 3” in diameter. We also offer other sizes with short lead times and offer the possibility to have these bars hollowed out if required.

AMS 4590 (C63020 TQ50) - a bronze usually available in solid round bar but maybe hollowed if needed. Our range is from 0.75” to 6” in diameter.
