Bronze is a common metal alloy, typically made using mostly copper and some tin. Sometimes, other metals such as aluminum and nickel are added to create the ideal bronze alloy for a specific application.
Bronze is brittle, highly ductile, and non-magnetic. It is also electrically conductive and has excellent corrosion resistance.
Ø Electrical Connectors
Ø Corrosion Resistance - By forming a protective surface film, most copper alloys resist many corrosive environments
Ø Withstand High Temperatures - Several families of bronze alloys work well in elevated temperature environments
Ø Friction and Wear - Copper alloys wear well against steel and are used in numerous bearing and gear components
Ø Good Machinability - In general, copper alloys are easy to machine compared to steel
Ø Weldability - Many grades can be welded
Ø Brazing and Soldering - All grades of copper alloys can be brazed and soldered
