What is Bronze?

Bronze is a common metal alloy, typically made using mostly copper and some tin. Sometimes, other metals such as aluminum and nickel are added to create the ideal bronze alloy for a specific application.



Bronze is brittle, highly ductile, and non-magnetic. It is also electrically conductive and has excellent corrosion resistance.

Advantages:

Ø Corrosion Resistance - By forming a protective surface film, most copper alloys resist many corrosive environments

 

Ø Withstand High Temperatures - Several families of bronze alloys work well in elevated temperature environments

 

Ø Friction and Wear - Copper alloys wear well against steel and are used in numerous bearing and gear components

 

Ø Good Machinability - In general, copper alloys are easy to machine compared to steel

 

Ø Weldability - Many grades can be welded


Ø Brazing and Soldering - All grades of copper alloys can be brazed and soldered

 

Previous: Steel is a popular metal alloy consisting mostly of iron and some carbon.

Next: Aluminum is a lightweight, non-magnetic, silver-colored metal that can be formed into almost any shape.
