Brass is made of the metals copper and zinc combined. The proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brass alloys with varying properties. Brass has a number of properties that make its use ideal for a variety of applications.
Brass’ relatively low melting point of 900-940°C and flow characteristics make it a relatively easy material to cast. Additionally, brass is a very malleable, tarnish-resistant, low-friction and non-ferrous metal, which makes it a highly recyclable metal.
Brass is widely used in decorative, mechanical and architectural applications. Specific examples of applications for brass include metal worked fittings like locks, brackets, braces, valves, and more. Brass is also commonly used in the manufacture of electrical and plumbing components. The properties of brass also make it ideal in the manufacture of musical instruments and jewelry making.
360 Brass alloy is known for its good machinability and corrosion resistance, commonly used in a variety of applications such as screws, gears, and electrical components. It is also known as free-machining brass or cartridge brass. It is composed of approximately 57% copper and 43% zinc.
260 Brass alloy that is It is also known as “architectural brass” or “red brass”. It is composed of approximately 61% copper and 39% zinc and recognized for its good corrosion resistance and high ductility. 260 brass is commonly used in a variety of applications such as electrical components, fasteners, and decorative items.
272 Brass alloy is also known as Yellow Brass and composed of approximately 67% copper and 33% zinc. It has good corrosion resistance and high strength, and commonly used in applications that require these properties such as fasteners, marine hardware, and electrical components.
330 Brass alloy has a low lead content is composed of approximately 68% copper and 32% zinc. It is known for its good ductility, machinability and corrosion resistance and accordingly used in gears, screws, and electrical component applications.
464 brass alloy is also known as Naval Brass and Aluminum Brass due to its tin content, which improves its corrosion resistance in seawater. It is composed of approximately 60% copper, 39.2% zinc and 0.8% tin. It is commonly used in marine applications such as propellers, pump impellers, and marine hardware. It is also used in electrical and electronic applications.
Phosphor Bronze 510 is a copper-tin-phosphorus alloy that is commonly used in electrical and electronic components. It is known for its excellent corrosion resistance, high electrical conductivity, and low contact resistance. It is often used to make contacts, terminals, and connectors, as well as springs and contact tips.
