An Alloy Of Copper And Zinc
Brass is an alloy of Copper & Zinc. The proportions of Copper & Zinc can be varied to create a range of Brasses with varying properties. Brass is commonly used in the manufacture of electrical, automotive and various other componentry. It is also extensively used in Architectural design, particularly for internal surfaces such as elevator doors, lighting, door hardware and many other items too numerous to list. Brass can also be specified for “touch surfaces” in public areas because of the anti-microbial properties of the Copper content in the alloy.
