Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, usually with copper as the base element and with zinc being no more than 40% of the weight.
The USPs of brass:
- Good resistance to corrosion and chemicals
- High conductivity of heat and electricity
- Strength and toughness comparable to steel
- Best machinable metal
- Fully recyclable
- No loss of properties at either high or low temperatures
- Easy to coat
Brass offers many solutions thanks to its unique composition. Brass always contains a certain percentage of copper. The “copper tree” visualizes the various possibilities in a single diagram and clearly shows the various subdivisions.
