Bronze is a material that is often used to create cast bronze plaques and signs, as it has so many benefits. Bronze is a classic material that has been used for centuries to create sculptures, statues, figurines, and plaques as well as becoming a huge trend in home interiors recently. We have used cast bronze in many of our big projects, including The Olympics and the Queen’s Jubilee, and it’s our top material to use when creating plaques and signs.
Bronze is an alloy consisting mainly of copper and sometimes using additional metals that give it added qualities. Here are some of the benefits of cast bronze plaques and signs.
Bronze is a durable material that can withstand harsh temperatures which is perfect for outdoor plaques and signs. Bronze goes as far back as the Bronze Age and was predominantly used for armour and weaponry due to its durability. It’s a protective and hard wearing metal that is difficult to break or wear down. Bronze is often combined with other metals such as aluminium to increase its ductility and durability.
The durability of bronze means that it retains its appearance for many years. Plaques are installed with the expectation that they will stand the test of time and bronze is perfect for this. It’s resistant to corrosion, particularly when combined with aluminium. It can withstand all weathers and isn’t damaged by rust, meaning that a bronze plaque will look as beautiful in years to come as it did the day it was installed.
Bronze is a classically beautiful material that adorns the entrance of buildings and indoors elegantly. Aesthetically, it’s a luxurious material that adds a touch of opulence and class to any building. If you’re wanting your plaque to stand out then bronze should be your choice of metal as it’s a striking material that can be made in various colours to stand out.
A great quality of bronze is the ability to mould it to however you like, in terms of shape, colour, and design. You can personalise your bronze plaque to represent your business, project, or a loved one. This is great for memorial plaques as you could have an image, name and quote all embossed in beautiful bronze.
Inexpensive, Quality Material
Although bronze looks opulent, it is actually an inexpensive metal in comparison to gold and silver whilst still having similar qualities. It’s an affordable material that certainly doesn’t compromise on quality and design.
