Four Properties that Make Bronze Bars and Sheets Valuable Materials


When looking at bronze bars or bronze sheets, it can be difficult to assess whether you’re looking at the ideal material for your current project. Characteristics such as malleability, corrosion resistance, appearance, durability, and others can vary wildly among different alloys of bronze, and more so when other metals such as brass or steel are also in the picture. So to be certain you’re choosing the perfect material, consider these traits of bronze, and from there, make the best possible decision:

Corrosion Resistance

In many situations where other metals might quickly lose their durability to various corrosives, bronze will hold up remarkably well—especially if you carefully consider the environment and choose the right type of bronze for the job. Bronze is especially valuable in maritime applications, resisting the ravages of electrolysis much better than other comparable alloys.
