What is the bronze content of bronze headstones?

Posted by Linda

There are four key elements that make up bronze.

Bronze content is government regulated and is:

  • Not less than 87% Copper
  • Not less than 5% Tin
  • Not more than 5% Zinc
  • Not more than 2% Lead
  • All other elements not to exceed 1.5%

The Bronze makers we order are of the same quality.  Cemeteries in this area that accept bronze markers are Cadillac Memorial, Glen Eden, Forest Lawn Cemetery. Be sure to always check with the cemetery before ordering any type of marker.
