Is Bronze Magnetic – Here’s Everything about Bronze Magnetic Properties

Bronze is a metal alloy mainly composed of copper and tin. However, it may have other materials in different proportions.

Is Bronze Magnetic or Non-magnetic?

Bronze is a non-magnetic alloy. Being an alloy, the non-magnetic properties of bronze are attributed to the alloying elements – copper and tin.

First, copper is non-magnetic. Then secondly, tin is non-magnetic as well.

Copper is one of the main compositions of bronze. It does not have free electrons whereby despite being mixed with other metals, it does not attract a magnet.

Copper in bronze has electrons that move in opposite directions. This factor cancels out magnetism making copper diamagnetic. Whereas tin is paramagnetic because it does not have any unpaired electrons. This aspect makes it weak to be attracted to magnets. Even if you put in near magnets, it will not retain magnetism.
