Brass is an alloy containing Zinc as the principal alloying element with or without other designated alloys such as Tin, Aluminum, Nickel, and Lead . By Comparison Bronze is principally an alloy of Copper and Tin. Bronze does not necessarily contain Tin, and a variety of alloys of Copper, including alloys with Iron, Phosphorus, Lead, Aluminum, Manganese, and Silicon are commonly termed Bronze. It is hard and tough, and it was so significant in antiquity that the Bronze Age was named after the metal.

Applications:

Brass is used for decoration for its bright gold-like appearance; for applications where low friction is required such as locks, gears, bearings, doorknobs, ammunition casing and valves. It is also used for plumbing and electrical applications; and extensively in brass musical instruments such as horns and bells for its acoustic properties.

Bronze is the most popular metal for cast metal sculptures. Bronze alloys have the unusual and desirable property of expanding slightly just before they set, thus filling the finest details of the mold. Then as the bronze cools, it shrinks a little making it easier to separate from the mold.
