C54400 Phosphor Bronze

C54400 Phosphor Bronze is an extremely high-quality alloy that is often called the “finest bearing alloy on the market”. This outstanding reputation is due to a number of factors and properties including:

  • Extreme ease of machining
  • High strength and bearing
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Anti-friction qualities
  • Low conductivity
  • Corrosion resistance equal to high tin phosphor bronzes

These obvious advantages mean that C54400 Phosphor Bronze is in use in many of today’s important industries and applications including:

  • Chemical hardware
  • Pinions
  • Bushings
  • Gears
  • Valve parts
  • Bearings (sleeve, thrust)
  • Thrust washers
  • Screw machine products

C54400 Phosphor Bronze has a unique certain chemical composition that includes,

  • Cu Balance
  • Sn 3.50-4.50%
  • Pb 3-4%
  • Zn 1.50-4.50%
  • P 0.01-0.50%
  • Fe 0.10%

When it comes to fabrication, C54400 Phosphor Bronze takes both soldering and brazing well and it can be cold worked. However, experts recommend that, with the exception of butt-welding, users should never weld C54400 Phosphor Bronze. C54400 Phosphor Bronze meets a number of critical specifications including those from ASTM (B139), and SAE (J461 and J463).
