Important Brass Profiles Qualities
Brass is a metal composed primarily of copper and zinc. Copper is the main component, and brass is usually classified as a copper alloy. The color of brass varies from a dark reddish brown to a light silvery yellow depending on the amount of zinc present; the more zinc, the lighter the color. Brass is stronger and harder than copper, but not as strong or hard as steel. It is easy to form into various shapes, a good conductor of heat, and generally resistant to corrosion from salt water. Because of these properties, brass is used to make pipes and tubes, weather-stripping and other architectural trim pieces, screws, radiators, musical instruments, and cartridge casings for firearms.
During production, brass is subject to constant evaluation and control of the materials and processes used to form a specific brass stock. The chemical compositions of the raw materials are checked and adjusted before melting. The heating and cooling times and temperatures are specified and monitored. The thickness of the sheet and strip are measured at each step. Samples of the finished product are tested for hardness, strength, dimensions, and other factors to ensure they meet the required specifications.
Brass has a combination of strength, corrosion resistance, and formability that will continue to make it a useful material for many applications in the foreseeable future. Brass also has an advantage over other materials in that most products made from brass are recycled or reused, rather than being discarded in a landfill, which will help ensure a continued supply for many years.
Brass sheets are commonly used for door hardware, tooling, furniture, nuts, gears and small hardware.
Moreover, its variation in alloy offers a strong, wear resistant and highly weldable ability.
One of our brass profiles is the brass angle, which is most commonly used in decorative application such as handrails, ornamental trim, and hardware.
It has excellent formability when heated. It is not heat treatable and can be brazed and soldered.
