6 Considerations for Selecting the Correct Brass for a Given Application

To the unknowing eye, brass is brass. But we in the industry know there are many variables in brass alloys which are used in wide ranging applications. In order to effectively select the correct brass for a given application, critical attributes of the final product have to be considered, including: End Use Application – Does the application require leaded, low lead or lead-free* brass. Is the product for a mechanical, ornamental, electrical, potable water conveyance, medical or others? Chemical Properties – There are many variations of brass alloys because some applications may require additional elements added which can make the...

Inspired by a new focus on using brass products and advancements in high speed machining and tooling, the Copper Development Association conducted third party machinability testing on both leaded and lead-free* brasses using single point turning and drilling operations. What was found was fantastic! Anyone processing brass has an opportunity to decrease cycle times by as much as 94%. Who would have guessed that despite the reputation of brass’ machinability, of its capability has been underutilized, thus inflating the cost per part and decreasing potential profitability. The CDA study was performed on 5 brass alloys machined at different speeds and feeds...
