Red bronze formula


#1

I’m experimenting a bit in bronze casting right now and I’m looking
for a red bronze. Does anybody have a source or a formula for such a
creature? I really appreciate all the help.

People like to use the words brass and bronze interchangably, so
sometimes is difficult to know what someone is asking for.

If you’re looking for a metal formula used in Viking-Age castings,
then you’re talking about red brass…the formula for red brass is
(Cu85/Zn5/Sn5/Pb5).

If you’re looking for something that really called red bronze, then
I don’t know.

Hi Orchidians, Hi Richard.

Try this formula: Cu 90% - Sn 8% - Zn 2% > Absolutely Red, it’
isn’t fluid .Fus Temp. about 1.150 - 1200 C ( in vacuum) Cu 86% - Sn
10% - Zn 4% > Good Red, more fluid idem

For whom, who want to try : Cu 80% - Sn 20% > " Bell’s " Bronze !
Very clear, but it sounds very well.

Hope it helps! Regards to all ! http://www.laboratoriogus.com/
