Brass and Life

Brass And Life

Brass is usually the first-choice material for many of the components for equipment made in the general, electrical and all precision engineering industries. Brass is specified because of the unique combination of properties that make it indispensable where a long, cost-effective service life is required. This combination is matched by no other material.

The word "brass" covers a wide range of copper-zinc alloys with differing combinations of properties, including:

 

 

 

 

  •       Strength
  •       Ductility
  •       Hardness
  •       Conductivity
  •       Machinability
  •       Wear resistance
  •       Color
  •       Corrosion resistance
  •       Recyclability
  •       Combinations of these properties result in unique structural materials.
  •       The machinability of brass sets the standard by which other materials are judged.
  •       Brasses can easily be cast to shape or fabricated by extrusion, rolling, drawing, hot stamping and cold forming.
  •       Brasses are ideal for a very wide range of applications
  •       Brass products can often be used without needing extra surface protection.
  •       Brass is frequently the material to select to make the least costly machined products.

To suit every need, there are very many standard compositions for brass, with copper contents ranging from 55% to 95%. Apart from the major alloying element, zinc, small additions (less than 5%) of other alloying elements are made to some brasses to modify their properties so that the resulting material is fit for a given purpose.
