– Casting at “Bergmans” has a value in itself.
Bronze is a mixture of 85% copper and 15% other metals, usually zinc, tin, and sometimes silica, so called “silicone brons”. Bronze has a melting point of about 900 C. The casting temperature is varying for different casting methods, approximately 1030-1180 C. Bronze has been used for the casting of artefacts in 1000s of years. The sheer beauty of bronze and it’s durability are the reasons that many great renaissance masters such as Michelangelo, Andrea Riccio, Donatello, Andrea del Verrocchio and Rodin used bronze as final material for his sculptures.
