Brass is ideally suited to the manufacture of many components because of the wide variety of forms and sizes available that minimise costs of machining to final dimensions. It has a unique combination of properties: strength, shock resistance, ductility and conductivity combined with good corrosion resistance and other attributes such as superb machinability. Other beneficial properties are good formability, good spark-resistance, low magnetic permeability and toughness retained above and below ambient temperatures.
This section provides case studies for a variety of applications explaining how brass fulfilled material selection requriements.
