Brass is alloy of Copper and Zinc. They may also contain small amounts of other alloying elements to impart advantageous properties. Brasses have high corrosion resistance and high tensile strength. They are also suited to hot forging. Free machining brass sets the standard for machining, by which other metals are compared.
Brass is divided into two class. The alpha alloys, with less than 37% zinc, and the alpha|beta alloys with 37-45% zinc. Alpha alloys are ductile and can be cold worked. Alpha|beta or duplex alloys have limited cold ductility and are harder and stronger.
CZ108 | CW508L is an alpha alloy. CZ108 | CW508L is a high purity cold forming brass. It is used when severe bending properties are required. It can be machined but only with slow speeds and very light feeds.
CZ108 | CW508L corresponds to the following brass alloy grade but not be a direct equivalent to UNS C27200 or ISO CuZn37. CZ108 | CW508L is supplied as Half Hard Tube and Half Hard Sheet.
CZ108 | CW508L is typically used in Scientific Applications, Radiators, Heat Exchangers, Decorative.
