Phosphor Bronze Machining
A Guide to Phosphor Bronze CNC Machined Parts: Properties, Applications and Design Considerations
What is Phosphor Bronze?
Phosphor Bronze (also known as tin bronze or phos bronze) is an alloy of copper, tin and phosphorous. One of the oldest metal alloys, it is a versatile material that offers very good corrosion resistance. It is particularly used within the marine industry but also electrical, aerospace and chemical.
A number of grades of phosphor bronze are available. PB102 is the most common grade of wrought phosphor bronze used in the UK.
It has high corrosion resistance and excellent spring qualities – making it suitable for a wide range of applications and especially heavy duty components.
Main Attributes of Phosphor Bronze:
- High corrosion resistance
- High fatigue strength
- Low coefficient of friction
- Fine grain
- Good spring properties
- High mechanical properties
- Difficult to machine
- Good resistance to cold
- Good thermal and electrical conductivity
