Bronze ASTM-B-22

Bronze ASTM-B-22 is a high-tin bronze alloy. It adheres to the American Society for Testing and Materials B-22 certification, which covers numerous bronze alloys.

ASTM-B-22 alloys have excellent corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity, and mechanical properties, making them valuable for manufacturing machinery and automotive parts, marine equipment, architectural elements, and power transmission equipment. Some common grades of ASTM-B-22 are:

  • Aluminum bronze
  • Leaded bronze
  • Phosphor bronze
  • Silicone bronze
  • Tin bronze

Bronze manufacturers can work with these alloys to improve wear resistance, hardness, and strength.


Among the variety of alloys available, bronze ASTM-B-22 exhibits a number of features and benefits:

  • Corrosion Resistance: Bronze corrosion resistance makes it suitable for exposure to moisture, chemicals, or harsh atmospheric conditions.
  • Electrical Conductivity: The excellent conductivity of pure copper makes ASTM-B-22 a good choice for applications that require a medium to high level of conductivity.
  • Machinability: ASTM-B-22 performs exceptionally well under standard machining techniques and is ideal for intricate components.
  • Mechanical Properties: Known for high tensile strength and hardness, bronze alloys are appropriate for heavy loads and high stresses.
  • Thermal Conductivity: Superior heat dissipation properties are advantageous in applications where heat buildup can lead to problems.

Bronze ASTM-B-22 meets safety concerns in applications such as implants, healthcare, and food service because of its biocompatibility and antimicrobial properties. It also has considerable aesthetic appeal, making it a popular choice in art and architecture. Lastly, bronze alloys are recyclable, which contributes to environmental health and sustainability.
