Commercial Bronze 220 / C220 / C22000

ASTM B36, BS 2870 CZ101, EN CW501L

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. maintains an extensive inventory of Commercial Bronze (C220) in plate and sheet form. The alloy has a high capacity for being cold worked and does not harden as rapidly as higher zinc alloys, 240 and 260, thus requiring fewer anneals between operations. Exposure to high sulfide media should be avoided.

Typical Applications for C22000

  • Architectural metalwork
  • Electrical rotor bars
  • Weather-strips

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. has been serving the metal industry for over 90 years. Contact one of our knowledgeable sales staff today to help you with your C22000 Bronze needs!
