Leaded/Phosphor Bronze LB2/LB4/PB2
Leaded bronze LB4 contains 9% lead and 5% tin. It has good machining properties, wear resistance and medium to good corrosion resistance. While LB2 is continuous cast leaded tin bronze has good plasticity which maximizes strength. PB2 has higher tin content shows excellent resistance to wear.
• Hard wearing bronze containing a small amount of phosphorus
• High fatigue resistance
• High tin content reduces the risk of corrosion
• Phosphorus increases wear resistance
• Commonly used in manufacture of bearings, sleeves, thrust washers and gears
