Standard Grade Wrought Phosphor Bronze - PB102

The PB102 stocked by Columbia Metals Ltd is the standard grade of wrought phosphor bronze, containing additions of about 5% tin and up to 0.4% phosphorus to improve its mechanical strength, stiffness, wear resistance, and corrosion resistance.

PB102 is especially ideal where good mechanical properties, cold formability, and high corrosion resistance are essential. It also has good weldability and reasonable machinability in addition to superior brazing, soldering, and butt welding capability.
