copper-brass-bronze

Brass is an alloy comprised of copper and zinc, and its properties can be modified to create different types of brass. Lead is commonly added to the composition of brass, which improves its machinability. Brass can be formed into different shapes with facilitation, and is used for products such as piping and tubing, radiators, musical instruments, firearm cartridge castings, and architectural features. It is also salt water corrosion resistant.

Copper is a metallic element that has been used for many years and is known for its high conductivity for heat and electricity. Copper shares many properties with silver and gold, and is used in many similar applications. Common applications of copper and copper alloys include the making of coins, gun metals, wires, industrial machines, and electrical motors. Copper is continually in demand due to its many uses and valuable properties.

Bronze is a copper alloy with many variations in its composition for different uses. It has corrosion resistant properties and is commonly used in applications where it is preferred as an alternative to copper due to its harder material. Bronze is often used in the product of architectural pieces, furniture hardware, trims and railing, and door and window frames. If protected with a mild coating, bronze can also be resistant to weak acids.
