Aluminum Bronzes - Part I,
The aluminum bronzes offer a combination of mechanical and chemical properties unmatched by other alloy series. They have excellent corrosion resistance, especially in seawater and similar environments, where the alloys often outperform many stainless steels. They also have strength similar to low alloy steels. This paper reviews the applications, effects of alloying elements, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, freedom from oxide flaking and resistance to cavitation erosion
Aluminum Bronzes - Part II,
This paper covers cast and wrought aluminum bronze, fabrication and welding, machining, and references
Beryllium Copper Metallurgy,
Copper beryllium alloys are used for their high strength and good electrical and thermal conductivities. There are two groups of copper beryllium alloys, high strength alloys and high conductivity alloys
C95800 Data Sheet (Aluminum Bronzes),
This data sheet contains chemical composition, mechanical properties, physical properties, casting characteristics fabrication properties, thermal properties, typical uses and specifications. It explains why aluminum bronze is used for marine hardware, covers for marine hardware, ship building, and valves in contact with sea water.

Introduction to Brasses (Part I),
An overview of the large and industrially important family of alloys based on copper and zinc. The article is especially recommended to designers, engineers and others who specify materials for manufactured products. A brief history of brasses is included for those interested in learning about these interesting alloys. Links are provided to sources on The Copper Page and other websites where more detailed information can be obtained.
Introduction to Brasses (Part II),
This section provides explanations about duplex, free cutting and high strength brasses as well as alloying agents and European designations
