Brass is an alloy formed by the combination of copper and zinc in varying proportions. In our country, it is also called "yellow" due to its yellow color. Brass has high strength and corrosion resistance properties, with its internal structure and mechanical properties being proportional to the zinc content. It is the most important of all non-ferrous copper alloys and finds extensive use in engineering. Industrial brasses contain alloying elements other than copper and zinc.
To enhance the mechanical properties of brass, elements such as nickel, manganese, iron, tin, or silicon can be added to copper in addition to zinc. These additional elements, present in alloys called special brass, do not significantly affect elongation properties but increase tensile strength. Alloys containing multiple elements are referred to as high-strength brasses.
The key characteristics of brass include resistance to atmospheric corrosion, suitability for hot and cold forming, deep drawing, hot forging, pressing, and ease of soldering. At Sağlam Metal, three types of high-strength brass are manufactured, and custom production based on specific compositions is also possible.
WHERE IS BRASS USED?
Brass is utilized for various purposes in industries. Due to its electrical conductivity, durability, and resistance to heat, it is employed in the electrical and electronic industries. Brass is a common material for mechanical parts such as valves, faucets, pumps, radiators, plumbing, and pipelines. Its widespread use is also attributed to its ease of soldering.
