Phosphorous Bronze Fasteners
Phosphor bronze is an alloy that contains copper along with 0-5-11% tin and 0.01-0.35% Phosphorous. The corrosion resistance and straight of Phosphor bronze Fasteners depends on the amount of tin added. The stiffness of the alloy is increased, along with the resistance to wear and tear with the amount of phosphorous.
The strength, and toughness of Phosphor bronze Fasteners is good. It also has a low coefficient of friction. In molten condition the viscosity of the metal is reduced due to the phosphorous present in it. The alloy is used in environments where constant wear & tea
