Bronze balls are made of a high quality alloy created for environments subjected to attack by gasoline, water and other solvents. Bronze offers resistance to corrosion and is an excellent electrical conductor. Bronze is widely used in the electronics industry and in the manufacture of various valves.
Actual bronze balls are rare in the precision ball industry. Producing them would require a special quotation.
Aluminum Bronze balls are very similar to brass balls.
