Do you know the differences between brass and bronze?
In the first place, it is important to know that both materials are alloys of other materials, both from copper, in the case of brass, this is created from 60% copper and 40% zinc approximately. And in the case of bronze, this is made up of 88% copper alloy with 12% tin. In both cases, the percentages may vary and therefore the final characteristics of the material.
Next, we present some of the properties that each material presents
Malleable and easily deformed when cold
High thermic and electric conductivity
Corrosion resistant, making it ideal for fittings
Easy to cut and weld
Malleable and versatile
Resistance to electricity
Hard and highly resistant material
Bronze is made by exposing copper to high temperatures and brass to low temperatures.
Brass will be a more malleable material and bronze will be more resistant
The brass finish will be brighter and with the bronze a darker color will be obtained.
