Copper alloy castings are used in applications that require superior corrosion resistance, high thermal or electrical conductivity, good bearing surface qualities, or other special properties. Discussing the types and compositions of copper alloy used for casting, this article describes the major factors considered in alloy selection for casting, including raw material cost, castability, machinability, and the bearing and wear properties. It also provides information on the cost of the final product.
