  When copper was discovered around 9000 years ago, no one thought it would come to be the most investigated metal on the planet. Almost immediately, it was held in high esteem alongside precious metals like gold and silver. There are a number of reasons why it didn’t take long before copper became a staple...

If you look around you, you’ll see that most of the things that comprise the modern world are made of any or a combination of three basic materials—plastic, concrete, and metal—of which metal is the oldest. It’s been around for over 10,000 years and still surprises us with its flexibility and inimitability. Even now when...

Man’s obsession with alloys began after the discovery of bronze some 5,000 years ago. It sparked a curiosity that would soon fuel humanity’s transition to a more advanced civilization. Somehow, bronze’s discovery paved the way for industrial revolution where we owe most of the technologies that make up the modern world. If not for bronze,...

There are 95 known metals in the Periodic Table of Elements, of which only a handful are utilized for basic practical applications. Copper is among the most extensively used ones, thanks to its many prized properties, including its incredible malleability, ductility, corrosion resistance, and electrical conductivity. It’s no wonder copper is present in most major...

  Some metal-based structural or mechanical designs are so elaborate that forming parts of accurate shapes and cuts can be practically impossible. Of course, they can be cast or smelted but there’s a limit to how precise casting or smelting output can be due to metal’s sensitivity to temperature change. Fortunately, there’s another metalworking technique...

Copper was discovered and first used for basic applications some 10,000 years ago. About 9,000 years later, early metallurgists found a way to alloy it with tin, giving birth to one of the most popular metals of all—bronze. That also marked the beginning of the Bronze Age. Before the last myrietes ended, another copper-based alloy...

Most people think that there’s not much difference between freshwater and saltwater apart from the taste. What they don’t realize is that saltwater is actually about ten times more corrosive than freshwater, thanks to its high mineral content evidenced by its salty taste. This is why sea vessels are designed with a much stronger and...
