The design and manufacture of a metal component involves a multitude of decision points and will be influenced by considerations such as structural performance, weight, lead time, cost and aesthetics. It is understandable, therefore, that thoughts about how precisely that component is going to be manufactured are often left until the design is at a fairly … Read more
PHOSPHOR BRONZE PB1
(BS 1400 1985 PB1)
Phosphor Bronzes have Phosphor added to the alloy to improve strength and hardness. PB1 is a copper based alloy containing 10-12% tin. This alloy combines high mechanical strength with good ductility, corrosion resistance and wear resistance. It also offers a good resistance to shock loading. PB1 can be soldered and brazed and is traditionally used in heavy load applications run at high speeds. It is suitable pump and valve components, flanges, etc.
