Phosphor bronze, or tin bronze, is a bronze alloy that contains a mixture of copper with 0.5-11% tin and 0.01-0.35% phosphorous.
Qualities of Phosphor Bronze Alloys
Phosphor bronze alloys are primarily used for electrical products because they have superb spring qualities, high fatigue resistance, excellent formability, and high corrosion resistance. The addition of tin increases the corrosion resistance and strength of the alloy. The phosphor increases the wear resistance and stiffness of the alloy.
C544 Phosphor bronze is one of the finest bearing alloys the industry has to offer. As a phosphor bronze supplier, Aviva Metals has a variety of shapes and sizes available to meet the needs of your project, including sheets, strips, plates, wires, rods and bars.
Other uses include corrosion resistant bellows, diaphragms, spring washers, bushings, bearings, shafts, gears, thrust washers, and valve parts.
