Bronze is a hard copper alloy usually composed of copper and tin. Typically 88% copper and 12% tin, but alloys can also be made up using aluminium iron, nickel, manganese, and silicon.

Bronze is ideally suited to casting as it solidifies it expands forcing itself into every crevice of the mould then on cooling it contracts slightly making it easier to remove from the mould. Copper-based alloys have lower melting points than steel and are more readily produced from their constituent metals. Bronze is the most popular metal for top-quality bells and cymbals, and more recently, saxophones. It is also widely used for cast metal sculpture. Bronze parts are tough and typically used for bearings, clips, electrical connectors and springs. Unlike steel, bronze struck against a hard surface will not generate sparks, so it is used to make hammers, mallets, wrenches and other durable tools to be used in explosive atmospheres or in the presence of flammable vapours.

    Great for small bits

    I have used these semi-regularly for a couple of years on small lengths of Bronze. The material is of a good standard and usually comes within a few days. Not let me down yet.
