Phosphor bronze is an alloy of copper, phosphorus, and tin. The phosphorus in the alloy increases its stiffness and wear resistance, whereas the tin increases its corrosion resistance and strength. Phosphor bronze alloys are distinguished for their low co-efficient of friction, strength, fine grain, and toughness. The phosphorus in the alloy decreases viscosity, thereby making the molten alloy cleaner and easier to cast and reducing the grain boundaries stuck between crystallites. Phosphate bronze wires are used in applications that require resistance against chemicals, wear, and fatigue. For example, bolts and springs and propellers in ships. They are also used in dental bridges and nonferrous spring alloys. Demand for phosphate bronze wires is high primarily due to their moderate cost, high electric conductivity, and physical properties. Moreover, the wires can be molded into a wide variety of shapes, which makes them ideal for use in electrical contacts, springs, and a range of wire forms. Phosphate bronze wires offer many advantages over the more expensive beryllium copper. Furthermore, phosphate bronze wires are used in cryogenics, where the wires’ combination of low thermal conductivity and fair electrical conductivity permits the creation of electrical connections to devices at ultra-low temperature without the addition of excessive heat.

Phosphate bronze wires are also used in numerous niche applications such as electromagnetic interference shielding, security paper, electrical parts of products, cloth filters and belts, house architecture, and wind tunnels for testing airplane aerodynamics. Many factories use bronze belts or other phosphate bronze wire mesh owing to their numerous beneficial properties such as low thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity. Phosphate bronze wires are also utilized in the paper industry, where they can be up to 6 meters wide, which is a huge benefit for the industry.
