We hold stocks of three main types of bronze; aluminium bronze, phosphor bronze, and leaded bronze. These offer different physical and mechanical advantages and are available in different forms according to grade and manufacturing technique.
Despite their name, the phosphor bronzes are essentially alloys of copper and tin and are generally utilised for their wear resistance, corrosion resistance, medium strength, and their traditional bronze colouration. They can be offered in wrought grades as round, hexagon, flat, square, sheet and plate. While our leaded gunmetal with its ease of casting, good strength and corrosion resistance is offered in round bar and thick-walled tube.
The aluminium bronzes though are alloys of copper and aluminium together with varying amounts of nickel and iron. These are generally stronger and more corrosion resistant than the phosphor bronzes. They offer better wear resistance under heavier loads and a good formability, machinability and weldability. More of a golden bronze colour, these are mainly stocked in round, hexagon and plate.
