Why should you recycle bronze?
Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin, and this combination means that bronze has some interesting and unique properties. Bronze is used for a wide variety of purposes from musical instruments to electrical contacts, ship propellers to architectural purposes. As a result, recycling any and all scrap bronze is a great option, as this reduced the need to mine for more, protecting the environment and supporting the manufacturing industries. At the same time, the many uses of bronze mean that this is a valuable scrap metal. Bronze can also boast a range of practical and useful properties, although these will depend on the exact structure of the alloy itself. These properties include:
- being highly ductile
- low friction between metals
- not causing sparks when striking other metals, so it can be used safely when metal is needed around flames and flammable materials.
