Historically, bronzes were used for their hardness, strength and easy castability and gave their name to a period of time known as The Bronze Age. However, bronze is not simply an alloy of the past; it is very much used in modern engineering applications.
Ancient bronzes consisted mainly of copper and tin and are called tin bronzes. Tin bronzes are still used today but bronzes containing aluminium, nickel, manganese and silicon have been developed to give increased strength and corrosion resistance. These bronzes are used in seawater applications and are fully tested to meet stringent government requirements. An example of the use in seawater is the propeller of a container ship.
Architects also use bronze widely to enhance the appearance of their buildings, taking advantage of its attractive colour, corrosion resistance and high strength. A good example of this is Portcullis House, the parliamentary building, which is clad in aluminium bronze plate.
