Before buying bronze metal, it is essential to know its characteristics and applications. That way, you can ensure that you’re buying the right type of metal for the task at hand. The lack of knowledge about the metal you’re using may lead to costly mistakes and low-quality products. Here are some of the important aspects you need to know about bronze metal.

Where can Bronze be Used?

Bronze, which is a combination of copper and tin, is commonly used in machineries. In fact, it’s been around for more than 3,000 years, with people using it for machineries and household purposes. It’s good for applications that require metal-on-metal contact, thanks to its ability to minimize friction. This quality also allows the metal to be used for bearings and bushings. What’s better is that bronze can be used in combustible environments because it doesn’t cause sparks, helping avoid fire-related dangers.
