We stock Phosphor Bronze in the following forms:
Phosphor bronze is a type of bronze alloy that contains copper, tin, and phosphorus as its primary alloying elements. The addition of phosphorus to the alloy imparts specific mechanical and corrosion-resistant properties to phosphor bronze, with other key characteristics including high fatigue resistance, wear resistance, and electrical conductivity.
Due to its combination of strength, corrosion resistance, and other desirable properties, phosphor bronze finds applications in a wide range of industries. Common uses include fasteners, gears, musical instruments (such as guitar strings), bushings, bearings, and various mechanical components. Phosphor bronze is known for its excellent spring properties, making it a popular choice for components like springs and connectors.
