Bronze, a metal alloy, consists of tin and copper. Quality bronze memorials will contain 87 percent copper, 5 percent tin, 5 percent zinc, 2 percent lead, and a few other elements under 2.5 percent. It has been used for more than 6,000 years as an art medium. Sculptures, medals, statues, and other art projects were made in bronze to memorialize famous people and loved ones.
Bronze plaques can be used on markers, benches, statues, pedestals, or on a mausoleum wall to memorialize a loved one. They can be custom designed with dates, names, special lettering, inscriptions, and in some cases images cast on the plaque’s surface. These plaques are secured well in order to ensure a lasting memorial for your loved ones. Plaques and/or placards can be placed in memorial gardens wherever they are available.
Cremation has become a popular form of final arrangements for people for many reasons. Due to this fact, small bronze placards for urns and bronze urns are being used for the cremains. These can come in a variety of styles and shapes to match your needs. Custom urns can be chosen as part of pre-planning or for at-need services.
The main reason bronze has been used for so long is because of its durability and lasting beauty.
