Aluminum bronze alloys are copper alloys containing 5-12% aluminum. Some copper alloys also contain manganese, nickel, silicon and iron. The aluminum bronze alloys have a protective, adherent and hard alumina film that improves the corrosion resistance of these alloys. Aluminum bronze alloys are golden in color and available in both wrought and cast forms.
