Brass Plates are made using zinc and copper. A variety of grades are available in brass depending upon the amount of zinc and copper in them. The varying amounts of zinc and copper can alter the electrical and mechanical properties of brass. Brass is also used as a decorative element, owing to its gold-like appearance. Lead is added to brass to enhance its machinability.
Valves, bearings, door knobs, locks and ammunition casings are applications with low-friction that make use of Brass. When compared to bronze and zinc, the malleability of brass is higher. Brass also has a relatively low melting point, when compared to other alloys. Applications where sparking may cause hazardous situations make use of brass to prevent sparking. Demanding applications where high workability and durability is required, make use of brass. DZR is a form of brass that is corrosion resistant, it is developed specifically for applications where high corrosion resistance is required. Water-boiler systems use DZR brass, owing to its durability. Brass plates do not undergo Bio-fouling. Thus, it is an ideal choice for relative applications since centuries.
