Bronze metal powders

Bronze Metal Powder

  You have heard about bonze, but what is Bronze metal powder? Bronze metal powders are yielded from refined copper, various copper/zinc alloys, and aluminum. By varying the copper and zinc content of the alloy, it is possible to make gold of multiple shades. The bronze metal powder has a flaky nature. No matter how fine it is, the particle structure remains flaky. Only the highest-grade copper and zinc are used to maintain this structure. Therefore, the bronze powder contains only a tiny amount of lead and similar metals due to its design. Made of pure copper, zinc, and pure aluminum, it is non-toxic and does not harm your health.  

History of Bronze

  The discovery of bronze has allowed people to make complex, durable metal products previously impossible. Building materials such as bronze tools, weapons, armor, and decorative tiles were more complicated and more durable than those made of stone or copper (the "Period of Use of Gold and Stone"). Initially, bronze was created from arsenic bronze produced from copper and arsenic, or from raw or artificially blended ore of copper and arsenic, but the most aging known remains are those made on the Iranian plateau in the 5th millennium BC.  

Classification of Bronze Metal Powder

  Depending on the granularity, the bronze powder is divided into 200 mesh bronze powder, 400 mesh bronze powder, 600 mesh bronze powder, 800 mesh bronze powder, and 1000 mesh bronze powder. The larger the mesh, the smaller the particle size and the higher the surface coverage. 200 mesh bronze powder is used for gold fabric printing, quick printing. Its lightweight and high metallic touch also characterize it. The 400 mesh bronze powder is also appropriate for net printing, wallpaper, and paint and blending into plastics. The 600 mesh bronze powder is used for gold-colored fabrics, screen printing, and craft coating.  

Applications of Bronze Powder


Printing Industry

  Bronze powder for sale in printing wallpaper, silkscreen to design paper, glass, cloth, leather, etc., hot stamps to transfer flakes into rolls to stamp and emboss, paint, etc. The primary service of gold bronze stains is in the printing industry. The immediate benefit of gold bronze pigments is in the printing industry, used for gravure printing and letterpress printing. Gravure printing is widely used in plastics, paintings, luxury packages, cigarette shells, securities printing, etc., due to its brilliant metallic luster, contrast with the subject, and dramatic effects.

Fabric Printing

800 mesh bronze metal powder is used for printing fabric, plastic paint spray, and plastic, aqueous and non-aqueous wallpaper point paint purposes. 1000 mesh bronze powder is used to manufacture high brightness, spray adhesive paints, wood materials, screen printing inks, rubber letterpress inks. It is distinguished by excellent and high brilliance. The 1200 mesh bronze powder is used in printing inks, paints, plastics, silkscreen inks, and more. 150 mesh bronze powder has excellent performance, bright gloss, and stability. Therefore, it can be used to manufacture offset printing inks in cans.

Corrosion Resistant Bronze Powder (R Type)

The heat resistance is the exact as that of typical bronze powder, but the erosion resistance is a little better than that of regular bronze powder. Bronze metal powder is used for wallpaper and textile products because it prevents discoloration after printing and painting and prevents gelation of automobiles.  


  If you don’t have enough budget to use natural gold leaf, you want to create a texture of gold. Bronze metal powder is a very versatile material. It can be mixed with other mediums such as paint or painted with various concentrations above. Even people who can afford to use gold leaf sometimes use bronze powder as gold leaf. It is easy to control and can give a much flatter and consistent impression than gold leaf. It's the perfect solution when you need a uniform finish.
