Could that be used for bearing material instead of 932?
Extremely low load/speed, etc.

Alloy 954, aluminium bronze has high
strength with good impact, wear and
corrosion resistance, high resistance to
oxidation and good strength at
elevated temperatures. Anti-seizure
properties, however, are poor.
Typical Applications:
High strength bearings, bushings, bolts,
gears, gear wheels, guides, pump rods,
propellers, pickling hooks, valve seats,
worm wheels and non-sparking tools etc.

Pickling hooks as well!?

And cheaper than 932! Oh, I'm in shape now.

;) Thanks mate.

Aluminum bronze is very hard. Make sure it's not harder than the parent (sliding) metal.

C923 is a step up from C932 (660) and is used for high-load bearings. It's about the same but has a little less lead. The 923 is also called Navy G-brass. The problem I'm having is finding a place that sells it in shapes other than ingot. :eek:
