Compatible Metals Finder


Compatible Metals Finder

In an ideal world, we would be able to use one type of metal for the entire construction or project that we were working on. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work out this way. Because we live in this imperfect world, we have created this little table below to help you choose the best alternative or the most compatible metal for your application.

The metals closer together in this table can be used together. Metals farther apart should not be used together.

For example, bronze and copper can be used together; aluminum and copper should not.

Bronze (silicon)
Copper

Tin
Lead
