Bronze is primarily an alloy of copper and tin but other elements are often introduced to create different characteristics. Bronze is a very hard material that is well-suited to demanding environments. General applications include bearings, gears, clips, electrical connectors, springs, sculptures, medals and musical instruments.

There are two main types of bronze - phosphor bronze and aluminium bronze.

The introduction of phosphor creates a very hard, wear-resistant material suitable for mechanical applications.

Aluminium bronze has a high level of corrosion resistance and impact strength, properties which make it a common choice in the marine, chemical and general engineering industries. It’s low friction surface also makes it suitable for electrical components.
