CZ120 / CW608N Engraving Brass Rolled is a duplex phase brass, containing a 2% lead addition finely dispersed throughout the microstructure to offer free cutting properties. Primarily a sheet grade it is often referred to as engraving brass due to its excellent machining qualities.

Traditionally used for machine engraved nameplates and signs it also offers a good combination of strength, corrosion resistance and hot formability. This combination of attributes make it very desirable for many applications including architectural metal work and decorative items. If rod material is required in addition to the sheet grade CW617N / CZ122 is the equivalent grade. This is also available in a comprehensive range of sizes in round and hexagon from Holme Dodsworth stocks.
