Phosphor Bronze CASTING - PBC

Increasing the amount of added phosphorus, which is used as a deoxidizer when bronze is melted and casted so that phosphorus remains in the alloy at the proportion of 0.05-0.5%, increases the hardness and strength of the alloy. Alloys where phosphorus is added at the proportion of not more than 1% in bronze for this purpose is called phosphor bronze.

Corrosion resistance of phosphor bronze is better than bronze, and it has less abrasion loss and good wear resistance, and thus is used for components of motors for elevators.
