Phosphor Bronze Sheet & Strip for Custom Springs and Stampings
Please note that we do not sell phosphor bronze or any other materials in raw form. Phosphor bronze sheet and strip are material options for custom springs, etc., manufactured by Peninsula Spring.
Offering a combination of good physical properties, fair electrical conductivity, and moderate cost, phosphor bronze is ideal for custom springs and custom stampings. Phosphor bronze is commonly used as a lower-cost alternative to Beryllium copper.

Heat Treating Phosphor Bronze
Phosphor bronze is delivered in pre-tempered condition; as such, no further hardening can be achieved through heat treating. However, stress relieving is a common practice in the manufacturing of phosphor bronze flat springs and sheet metal stampings.
Manufacturing Custom Phosphor Bronze Springs & Stampings
Phosphor bronze is cold worked to the required temper. It is ideal for spring and wire form applications where corrosion resistance and electrical conductivity is a concern.
