Cu-Zn Alloys (Brass)

Through targeted variation of the alloy elements and excellent casting technology, the desired mechanical properties for nearly every possible application can be achieved. The strength characteristics of some special brasses match and exceed the levels of typical steels. Also, to a large degree, these properties can be maintained up to high temperatures of approximately 300°C. Relative to many iron-cast materials, the nearly constant ductility of special brasses at low temperatures of up to 200°C has proven to be particularly advantageous. Here, the good slipping, bearing and emergency-running properties of special brasses are also advantages.
