Bronze is a copper colored metal that is an alloy of copper and tin.
It tarnishes and will turn the color of a bronze sculpture or old penny over time. It has slightly more corrosion resistance than brass. Bronze can be cleaned with any commercially available brass cleaner - like Brasso.
All of our bronze is 1/2 hard temper and is strong enough for quality chainmail. Our alloy of choice is C510 which is a phosphor bronze.
