Brass and Bronze Recycling

Brass and Bronze are copper alloys, meaning they primarily contain copper with various other metal compounds, such as zinc, tin, and lead to form a new metal in the form of Brass or Bronze. Other metals can also be added, depending on the requirement and purpose of the metal. Bronze is one of the earliest alloys known, dating back thousands of years known as the Bronze age.

Why are there different types of brass and bronze?

Appearence, strength and corrosion resistance are some of the reasons for different types of brass and bronze.

The difference between brass and bronze?

Brass and Bronze are very similar metals, in general Brass is believed to be a copper alloy containing more Zinc, while on the other hand Bronze is thought of in regards to its higher Tin content.

What are the different types of brass and bronze?
