All About Phosphorous Bronze Fasteners

Phosphorous Bronze is a type of bronze alloy that consists primarily of copper, tin, and phosphorous. This combination allows for greater strength and flexibility than other bronzes, making Phosphorous Bronze Fasteners ideal for gears, bearings, and many other mechanical components. Phosphorus also increases the material’s wear and corrosion resistance in specific environments. Phosphorous Bronze is often used in applications where precision machining is required since it can be cold-worked easily while maintaining its strength characteristics and also being heat treated to further improve its strength and tensile properties. 

Advantages of Phosphorous Bronze Fasteners

They are an essential component in many different structures. They have several advantages compared to other fasteners, including greater tensile strength & corrosion resistance, making them ideal for applications in severe environments or where high loads are expected. These properties make phosphorous bronze fasteners the perfect choice for various industrial and commercial applications also phosphorous bronze can be used in everything from bridges and buildings to marine vessels and aircraft & increasingly used in medical devices due to its non-toxicity, biocompatibility, and corrosion resistance.
