The Bronze Age
Bronze is an alloy made up mostly of copper and other metals. It has been used for thousands of years to create tools, armor, weapons, and building materials. In fact, there is an entire period of history called the “Bronze Age,” where the alloy was used extensively. Today, there are many decorative and ornamental uses for bronze and it is also commonly used in ship’s propellers, musical instruments, and many more applications.
The alloy offers a few advantages. Bronze is great at holding up against friction, and it wears well against steel. It is used in many bearing and gear components because of this. Bronze also resists corrosion with its protective surface film, and it has the ability to withstand extremely high temperatures.
