Bronze is an alloy that consists primarily of copper and mixed with tin as the main additive. It is exceptionally strong, resistant to atmospheric corrosion, and is harder than copper on its own. The resistance and hardness comes from the alloying of the copper with tin or other metals. It is a dull-gold color, similar to brass, but has indistinct rings on its surface that differentiate it.
Bronze has been used by humans for thousands of years, making it one of the oldest metals in use. It is a versatile metal that is used in many industries from tools to instruments to works of art. Bronze is fusible and easier to cast than some other metals. It is also harder than pure iron and far more resistant to corrosion.
Bronze is used for many different industrial applications, and it’s an important material for industries like marine, electrical, automotive and more. Bronze can be used to make springs, turbines and blades. It’s also a common choice for machine bearings because it has such low metal-on-metal friction. In marine settings, bronze is a popular material because it is highly resistant to corrosion.
