Bronze is an alloy consisting primarily of copper, commonly with about 12â€“12.5% tin and often with the addition of other metals (such as aluminium, manganese, nickel or zinc) and sometimes non-metals or metalloids such as arsenic, phosphorus or silicon.
Malleability is a property of a material enabling it to be drawn into thin sheets.
Ductility is a property of a material enabling it to be drawn into wires.
Wrought Iron is the purest form of iron; although it may contain traces of carbon. It is usually made by ‘‘puddling process’’. It is very costly and its use has been almost totally replaced by cheaper steel. However, for some components like chain-links and Crane-hooks wrought iron is still the preferred raw material.
