Your bronze contains phosphor, this is used to get harder bronze.
This means that a bearing made from this material can work on heavier
loads than normal casting bronze for instance. I can give specific
details on this material but I have to bring them from my work and
they are only technical. Now what you can do with this stuff. It can
be recasted in every shape. Be aware that you do not over heat this
material otherwise some elements will evaporate. However if you do so
the workability of the material will be better. It can beautiful
polished but will be darken as copper after some time. The only is
thing is that this material is a bit brittle. so big deformations have
to be done step by step. with dull red treatments in between. Further
on is sawing not easy, use a sharp not to fine saw blades, without
using oil or grease as a lubricant. You are working on a material what
is made for sliding with steel.
If you want to know more, let me know.
