Phosphor Bronze Shims
Often referred to as 2.1020, the phosphor bronze material is BS PB103 phosphor bronze, which contains 6% tin. As a result of this, the alloy offers excellent wear resistance and higher strength properties than PB102 material. PB103 is also well known for its fantastic tarnish resistance. Additionally, PB103 material is highly corrosion resistant to a wide range of liquid and chemical environments – including paper and textile manufacturing plants. Many components are made in this material including precision machined components. Here at Stephens Gaskets, we can produce PB103 washers and PB103 shims cut to your exacting specifications.
PB102 vs PB103
Phosphor bronze has many different standards but PB102 and PB103 will often be compared. When it comes to the components we make, when comparing a PB102 shim or PB102 washers with PB103 ones, the latter will usually triumph. Put simply, the alloy offers a much greater strength and wear resistance than PB103 phosphor bronze.
Using PB10 Phosphor Bronze
PB103 Phosphor Bronze is often used in applications that require electrical conductivity. Additionally, the shim material will be used in marine hardware and for instrument components. Here at Stephens Gaskets, as well as manufacturing shims from the material, we can provide phosphor bronze in strips, coils, cut blanks, or of course cut pieces.
