Bronze & Zamac
Bronze is the generic name that was once given to all copper alloys. Today its meaning encompasses alloys of copper and tin. Due to its chemical properties, bronze is a material resistant to time which crosses the ages without difficulty.
Zamac designates, in chemistry, an alloy of zinc, aluminum, magnesium and copper. Its name is an acronym of the German names of the metals that compose it: Zink (zinc), Aluminum, MAgnesium (magnesium) and Kupfer (copper). It is a durable, strong and resistant material used in industry as well as in artistic productions.
