Composition of Common Brass Alloys

Composition of Common Brass Alloys Brass is a metal alloy that is always made with a combination of copper and zinc. By varying the amount of copper and zinc, brass can be made harder or softer. Other metals—such as aluminum, lead, and arsenic—may be used as alloying agents to improve machinability and corrosion resistance. How [...]

Brass Alloys and Their Applications

Brass Alloys and Their Applications Brass is a general term for a set of copper-zinc alloys that may include additional metals such as lead. Different types of brass have different properties, but all brass is strong, machinable, tough, conductive, and corrosion resistant. This along with beauty and ease of production make brass one of the [...]

Brass Material and Specifications Review

Brass Material and Specifications Review Brass is an alloy made of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties. In comparison, bronze is principally an alloy of copper and tin. Bronze does not necessarily contain tin, and a variety of alloys of [...]

How to Determine a Brass Grade

How to Determine a Brass Grade Brass is a metal alloy, which means it is a mixture of two or more metals, usually copper and zinc. The metals are heated until they melt. They are mixed together, then allowed to cool down and harden. Brass is graded according to the metals used and the percentages [...]
