Commercial Bronze Alloy C22000 for Rotor Bar Manufacturing

Bronze alloy C22000 is great for all AC rotor and rotor bar manufacturing. Known for years as Commercial Bronze, this alloy derives its name from its rich bronze color. Its appealing color also makes it ideal for architectural applications such as hinges, doorknobs, and kick plates. C22000 has excellent cold workability as well as good hot workability for blanking, coining, drawing, piercing and punching, shearing, spinning, squeezing and swaging, stamping heading and upsetting, roll threading and knurling, hot forging and pressing. Common applications manufactured from C22000 include etching bronze, grillwork, screen cloth, weather-stripping, lipstick cases, compacts, marine hardware, screws, and rivets.
