The Structural Benefits of Bronze Bars

When contractors for varied industries need to work with metals, they rely on dependable manufacturers and suppliers for their industrial needs. One of the most common metals for commercial and industrial use is bronze. Bronze bars are used by artisans, fabricators, and architectural designers, among others, to employ the material in various applications due to alloy’s unique structural advantages.
Bronze is highly resistant to corrosion; most copper alloys form a protective surface film that can resist all types of corrosive environments. Bronze is also highly heat resistant. There are many different types of bronze alloys that can be employed in high temperature environments, chosen for their ability to weather all types of heat damage and structural problems.

Because of the durable nature of bronze, it is capable of withstanding all types of friction and wear. Copper alloys, in general, are well applied to a variety of gear and bearing components. Bronze and other copper alloys are easy to machine as well, making them particularly desired in industries where an alternative to steel may be used.

All grades of bronze can be welded, sometimes more easily than other types of metals. This very quality of weldability makes bronze very versatile metal to use for a variety of residential, commercial, and industrial functions.

 

All grades of bronze and other copper alloys can also be brazed and soldered. This makes them easy to apply and work with on sensitive projects, where the alloys can be soldered and adjusted, as necessary, for the job.
