Bronze is a commonly used bearing material for all types of applications, due to its many benefits. Bronze is a strong material with exceptional corrosion resistance, it is easily machined, has the ability to operate at high temperatures, is resistant to friction and wear, and can be brazed and soldered. Because of this, bronze can be extremely durable and reliable, and is often used in a variety of industries such as ship propellers, submerged bearings, small electric motors
, agricultural machinery, and construction equipment. There are many different types of bronze that specialize in different applications as well. Tin bronzes are generally stronger and have a long operating life. Leaded and high-leaded tin bronzes are commonly used for their versatility and machinability, making them usable in a wide variety of applications. Aluminum bronzes are extremely strong and capable of being heat treated. Manganese bronzes include a combination of zinc, manganese, iron, aluminum, and lead, to create a jack-of-all-trades bronze capable of high speeds, heavy loads, and corrosion resistance.
