Brass Alloys

Brass is probably the best known of the “yellow metals” and it is produced in a wide variety of forms with many different characteristics and attributes. It is a basic alloy of copper and zinc and it finds many engineering applications as well as decorative ones. Additions of lead generally improve machinability, other alloying elements are used to improve strength and corrosion resistance.

Available Products

CZ106

CW505

A brass alloy that has a higher copper content and is suitable for many cold working operations particularly bending, stamping and deep drawing where the likelihood of stress fracture needs to be minimised.

CZ108

CW508

A common, high purity brass alloy suited to many general applications and often used for electrical engineering. Hardness and strength are both excellent and this alloy is well suited to cold forming.

CZ112

CW712

A brass alloy that contains tin to give it improved corrosion resistance making it ideal for marine applications. It has higher strength than other brasses though its machinability is reduced.

CZ114

CW721

An aluminium bearing high tensile brass alloy suitable for hot stamping and machining. Machinability is not as good as the free machining alloys however this alloy is stronger and has good corrosion resistance.

CZ115

CW722

A brass alloy similar to CW721 (CZ114) but the restriction of the aluminium content means this alloy will perform better in soldering and plating operations.

CZ120

CW612

A leaded brass alloy that has good machinability making it well suited to engraving applications. It also has sufficient ductility to make cold working possible.

CZ121

CW614

A high speed machining brass alloy designed to be used for general applications and for machining using high speed cutting tools. Sometimes used in hot stamping but it has limited cold working characteristics.

CZ122

CW617

The standard alloy used for fast repetitive, hot stamping. The mechanical properties of the alloy mean cheap, easily produced dies can be used. It has excellent machinability but very limited cold workability

CZ126

CW707

A brass alloy with increased resistance to corrosion. Its ductility and strength is better than other common alloys and it's well suited to applications where a lot of forming is required such as heat exchangers

CZ130

CW624

A free machining brass alloy that contains aluminium to create a bright, tarnish resistant, finish. It is particularly suitable for hinges, lock sections etc however it is unsuitable for plating or soldering.

CZ131

CW606

A brass alloy that is commonly used for turning and riveting and has a good combination of machinability and ductility. It can be easily cold worked for a variety of applications and it can also be hot stamped.

CZ132

CW602

A leaded brass alloy suitable for hot stamping and machining with an arsenic content that inhibits dezincification. This alloy finds many applications in the water and gas supply industries.
