Brass and bronze are known to be two types of metals that people may choose from. Brass is known to be an alloy of zinc and copper. Brass, on the other hand, is composed mainly of copper. Brass is also known to be made out of tin but there are also other elements that are mixed with aluminum, silicone, aluminum, and so much more. Between the two, brass is considered to be more malleable.

If you want to have something that is harder, you would need to choose bronze. Brass will also have a lower melting point as compared to bronze. This is something that you need to consider when choosing the right materials.

The main difference between brass and bronze is that brass contains copper and zinc, while bronze includes copper and tin. Brass and bronze are both composites of copper, and they are reliable solutions for copper and other various elements. Brass is a copper-zinc alloy, and its zinc content is rather high, being 45 percent of the mineral's weight. Manufacturers sometimes add tin, aluminum, silicon, manganese, nickel, and lead to brass as alloying elements. We can procure the properties of brass by changing the composition percentages.

Bronze is a copper-tin alloy. Copper aluminum alloys and copper silicon alloys are also called bronze. You can classify bronze by looking at the other alloying elements, including lead, zinc, phosphorus, aluminum, silicon, and silver. Bronze is more expensive than brass because the primary alloying element in bronze is tin.
