Phosphor bronze typically consists of approximately 90% copper, 6-8% tin, and a small percentage of phosphorus. It possesses excellent mechanical properties, such as high strength, good formability, and outstanding corrosion resistance. These properties make phosphor bronze an exceptional choice for bearing applications where durability and reliability are paramount.
The self-lubricating properties of phosphor bronze reduce friction and minimize the need for external lubrication, making it a cost-effective and low-maintenance option. Its versatility allows for application in automotive, industrial machinery, marine, aerospace, and defense sectors.
