Bronze is an alloy consisting primarily of copper, commonly with about 12% tin and often with the addition of other metals (such as aluminium, manganese, nickel or zinc) and sometimes non-metals or metalloids such as arsenic, phosphorus or silicon.Bronze is harder than copper as a result of alloying that metal with tin or other metals. Bronze is also more fusible (i.e., more readily melted) and is hence easier to cast. It is also harder than pure iron and far more resistant to corrosion. The substitution of iron for bronze in tools and weapons from about 1000 bc was the result of iron’s abundance compared to copper and tin rather than any inherent advantages of iron.Our standard lines of Bronze Bushings and Bronze Sleeve Bearings are always being produced to maintain our Service Center inventory levels. Bronze Trunnion Bushings, Bronze King Pin Bushings, Bronze Bowl Bushings, Bronze Thrust Washers, Brass and Bronze Gear Blanks, Brass turned parts, Brass Pistons and related parts are being manufactured daily.
  • Tin bronze
Tin bronze alloys are typically found in gear, high strength bushing and bearing applications where high strength and low speeds and heavy loads are present. Other high strength applications for these alloys are pump impellers, piston rings, steam fittings and valve bodies. View More
  • Phosphorus Bronze
The main component of phosphorus bronze is copper with tin added, and is an environmentally friendly alloy which does not contain harmful components deoxidized by phosphorus. View More
  • Aluminum Bronze
Aluminum bronzes are used for their combination of high strength, excellent corrosion and wear resistance. Aluminum bronze alloys typically contain 9-12% aluminum and up to 6% iron and nickel.View More
  • Leaded Bronze
The main function of leaded bronze group of alloys is to improve machinability. They are known for their resistance towards corrosion and abrasion and their long service life. View More
  • Manganese Bronze
Manganese bronzes alloys can operate under very high loads and speeds. However, bearing applications require reliable lubrication. Besides excellent mechanical qualities, these alloys have good corrosion resistance. View More
  • Silicon Bronze
Silicon bronze is a low-lead brass alloy that is generally composed of 96 percent copper. The remainder can be made from silicon and a variety of other alloys such as manganese, tin, iron, or zinc. View More
