Speciality of Bronze
History of Bronze:
Bronze alloy traditionally composed of copper and tin. Bronze is of exceptional historical interest and still finds wide applications. It was made before 3000 bc. The overall period is characterized by widespread use of bronze,
though the place and time of the introduction and development of bronze technology were not universally synchronous.
Characteristic Of Bronze:
Bronze Are Typically Very Ductile Alloys. Considerably Less Brittle Than Cast Iron. Bronzes Is Usually Nonmagnetic, But Certain Alloys Containing Iron Or Nickel May Have Magnetic Properties.
· Highly Ductile
· Bronze Exhibits Low Friction Against Other Metals.
Many Bronze Alloys Display The Unusual Property Of Expanding A Small Amount When solidifying From A Liquid Into A Solid.
Alloys Of Bronze:
Bronze is an alloy consisting mainly of copper, combined most often with tin, but at times also with other metals.
Bismuth Bronze -Is a Bronze Alloy With A Composition Of 52%Copper,30%Nickel,12% Zinc,5% Lead,And 1% Bismuth.It Is Able To Hold A Good Polish And So Is Sometimes Used In Light Reflectors And Mirrors.
Plastic Bronze – Plastic Bronze Containng A significant Quentity Of Lead Which Makes for Improved Plasticity Possibly Used By The Ancient Greeks In Their Ship Construction.
Other Bronze Alloy Include Aluminium Bronze,Phosphor Bronze, Manganese Bronze, Bell Metal ,Arsenical Bronze, Speculum Metal And Cymbal Alloy.
Bronze Is Used In Architecture For Structural And Design Elements,for Bearings Because Of Its Friction Properties,And As Phosphor Bronze In Musical Instrument,Electrical Contacts,And Ship Propellers.Aluminium Bronze Is Used To Makes Machine Tools And Some Bearings.Bronze Wool In Woodworking.Bronze Gods Diya Are Required.
