Tin bronze alloys, such as C903, are typically found in gear, high-strength bushing and bearing applications where high strength and low speeds and heavy loads are present. Other high-strength applications for these alloys are pump impellers, piston rings, steam fittings and valve bodies. C90300 tin bronze castings are utilized in movable bridge components, turntables for bridges and other structures for fixed and expansion bearings with slow or intermittent movement with heavy loads.

Fabrication Properties provided by CDA
*Since brazing is performed withing the hot-short range, strain must be avoided during brazing and cooling.
Thermal Properties provided by CDA
*Temperature is measured in Fahrenheit. **For Stress Relief, Solution Treatment and Annealing - Time is measured in hours/inch of thickness. For Precipitation Heat Treatment - Time is measured in hours.
