Our metal lamps parts are made of Solid Silicon Bronze with heavy Chrome Plating. Silicon Bronze is one of the most weather resistant metals available and we always use solid rods- never hollow tubes.
Silicon bronze usually contains about 96 percent copper. The remainder may be silicon alone, but more often a little manganese, tin, iron, or zinc also is added. These alloys were developed originally for the chemical industry because of their exceptional resistance to corrosion in many liquids. Some believe that Silicon Bronze is one of the most beautiful metals when left slightly polished.
