Brass fittings

Brass is a yellowish shiny type of alloy, which mainly consists of copper and zinc, usually 67% copper and 33% zinc. Brass and Bronze are two completely different alloys since bronze mainly consists of copper and tin. Brass might also contain other elemental metals such as arsenic, phosphorous, aluminium, manganese and silicon. Lead has a low melting point, so in some cases, they are added in concentrations to increase the machinability of the brass.

what are some examples of metallic bonds

Metallic Bonding Examples
Like NaCl is an example for ionic bonding, various metals like iron (Fe), lithium (Li), potassium (K), gold (Au), silver (Ag) are all examples of metallic bonding. Even the alloys of metals are the perfect example of such bonds. Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, Terfenol-D (a magnetostrictive alloy) and various chemical elements are some other examples of compounds that consist of metallic bonds. Most of the metals have only one or two valence electrons and their ionization energies are very low, that is, the valence electrons are not very tightly bound to the atom and they are easily mobile from one to the other atom. This ease with which mobile electrons move in a crystal lattice determines the bond, that means, ionic, covalent or metallic. The properties exhibited by metals are due as mentioned in the above paragraphs. For instance, consider gallium, molten gallium is a very non volatile liquid in its molten form and it is due to the strong metallic bonding in gallium.

Metallic bonding forms one of the various forms of chemical bonds studied in chemistry. This was some brief information on this form of bonding that is the main reason for various physical properties of metals.

the suction cups on my oil rubbed bronze soap dish are no longer tight enough to sick to the wall of my shower. it's been fine for over two years until now. can you buy new suction pieces or do i have toreplace the whole thing?

Sometimes this happens when the suction cups are somewhat dirty.
Wet the suction cups, leave for some time, and wipe with a clean cloth until the suction side is shiny. If it is not shiny at places that suggest those places are not cleaned thoroughly. Wet again and wipe again until you get a shiny surface.
Check the wall where it was attached. If you see any patches wet the area and wipe with a clean cloth.
You can apply just a tad bit of oil (I use coconut oil) to the suction cups.

Try this - and let us know the results.
Thanks for using FixYa!
