Brass & Brass Alloys

Farmers Copper Ltd. carries an extensive inventory of brass plate, sheet, bar, rod, pipe, tube, fittings, flanges, and fasteners. Brass Alloys are those made of copper and zinc. Binary alloys of copper and zinc are commonly known as “brasses”. Farmers Copper supplies brasses in C26000, C27200, C28000, C33000, and C36000. Brass and Brass Alloys are commonly used for decoration, in musical instruments as well as fittings, casings, valves, doorknobs and electrical applications.

The brasses are the most widely used and least expensive of the copper-based alloys. They possess relatively good corrosion resistance, moderately high strength, and in some compositions exceptionally good ductility and excellent forming characteristics when shaped by pressing, deep drawing, rolling and machining. Improved tensile properties are the result of cold working.

Brass Features

  • After cold working, brasses can be softened and recrystallized by appropriate annealing.
  • Adding lead to the brasses in amounts of 0.5 to 4%, results in free cutting of free-machining alloys in which the elemental lead is present as uniformly dispersed particles.
  • The high content of lead results in a relatively low ductility and plasticity.
  • To complement our extensive inventory, we provide material cut to your specifications on our precision plate saws, bar saws, shears, and water jet.
  • Holding tolerances as close as +/- .005”, we can eliminate unnecessary machining along with machine time.
