Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, in proportions which can be varied to achieve varying mechanical and electrical properties.

The main reason brass is used for decoration is for its bright gold-like appearance. It’s used for applications where low friction is required such as locks, gears, bearings, doorknobs and valves for plumbing and electrical applications.

Often brass is used in situations in which it is important that sparks not be struck, such as in fittings and tools used near flammable or explosive materials.

We carry brass in the following sections

Round

Flat

Square

Hexagon

Channel

Tube

Angle

All of these can be cut to your specific requirements, with no minimum order quantity, you only buy what you need.

We are able to quote on various specifications, including but not limited to those listed below.

CZ108 / CW508L is an alpha alloy, with less than 37% zinc. It is ductile and can be cold worked.

It is a high purity cold forming brass with severe bending properties. Machinablility is possible at slow speeds and very light feeds.

Soldering and brazing of CZ108/CW508L are both rated as excellent. Oxyacetylene welding is good and gas shielded methods are only fair. Resistance flash butt-welding may also be used.

CZ114 / CW721R is an alpha/beta alloy. It is the standard grade of high tensile brass and has a duplex structure. It contains alloying additions of aluminium, iron, and manganese to improve the strength levels compared with standard brasses and make this alloy ideal for more exacting applications.

The aluminium content not only assists in increasing the mechanical properties but also improves the general corrosion resistance of the alloy by the natural formation of an adherent aluminium oxide film on the surface of the material. CZ114 offers a reasonable machinability, and its good hot stamping capabilities enable its use for components such as gas valves, fittings, pumps and fasteners.

CZ121 / CW614N is an alpha/beta alloy. It’s used for machining. It has Lead added to the composition to improve machinability. The Lead remains insoluble in the microstructure of the brass and the soft particles act as chip breakers.

CZ121 is typically used in:
High speed machined components, architectural extrusions, locks and hinges.

Cold working isn’t recommended but hot working is excellent between 630 and 730°C.

Solering is excellent and brazing is good. Butt welding is fair.

CZ131 / CW606N is an alpha/beta alloy. It’s composition has been designed to provide a compromise between machinability, ductility and strength. Therefore, it can be used in applications when machinability and riveting are required.

CZ131 is typically used in:
Fasteners
Rivets
Domestic appliances
Automotive engineering
Hose fittings
Intricate parts such as clock components

Cold working is fair, and hot forming is poor. Machinability is good. Soldering is excellent, brazing is good and butt welding is fair.
