Bronze is the earliest alloy in the history of metal smelting. The addition of tin or lead to pure copper (red copper) has special importance and historical significance. Compared with pure copper (red copper), bronze has higher strength and lower melting point (25%). Smelting bronze, the melting point will be reduced to 800 ° C. The melting point of pure copper (copper) is 1083 ° C).
Bronze has good castability, wear-resistance, and stable chemical properties. After the invention of bronze, it immediately became popular, and human history has entered a new stage since then-the Bronze Age.
Bronze sculpture has the characteristics of low melting point, high hardness, strong plasticity, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, bright color and so on. It is suitable for casting various appliances, mechanical parts, bearings, gears, etc.
There are twelve categories of bronze utensils: food utensils, wine utensils, water utensils, musical instruments, weapons, carriages and horses, agricultural implements and tools, currency, seals and runes, weighing instruments, bronze mirrors, and miscellaneous utensils.
