Lead-Free, High-Strength, Copper-Bismuth Alloy

Under an OEM-funded program, QuesTek has applied its Materials by Design methodology to design and developed a lead-free, high-strength copper-bismuth alloy for highly-loaded bearing applications as an improvement over existing very highly-leaded bronze alloys. This alloy is patent pending.

Material and Licensing Availability

Some prototype material is currently available for testing and evaluation, please contact us for more information. We’re specifically interested in speaking with major end-users/OEMs outside of the aerospace industry about their needs to replace very-highly-leaded, high-strength, high-lubricity bronzes, as well as also speaking with potential licensees.
