Commercial Bronze

Commercial bronze is a copper alloy made from 90% copper and 10% zinc. This metal is often simply called “bronze sheet metal,” as it is most commonly available in sheets and plates for use in industrial projects and for other practical applications. Commercial bronze has a reddish color as a result of its high copper content. It is not common in architectural and design projects, and is instead often used for more industrial or practical purposes, including as a wrought metal used for fasteners, rivets, and bolts.

Properties of commercial bronze
Commercial bronze is highly malleable and ductile, which means it has an excellent capacity for cold working and shaping. Its excellent strength and corrosion resistance in conjunction with these properties lend it a great deal of practical appeal.

Cleaning Bronze
Commercial bronze can be cleaned using a solution comprising a 1-to-1 ratio of lacquer thinners to water. Cleaning is crucial to ridding commercial bronze sheets and plates of dirt, grime, fingerprints, and other imperfections. When cleaning, wipe only with the direction of the grain using a lint-free cloth. After cleaning, rinse the metal thoroughly and wipe dry with another clean, lint-free cloth.
