CZ108 | CW508L - Basis Brass

 CZ108 | CW508L Basis Brass

An alloy of copper and zinc is called brass. They may also contain trace amounts of additional alloying elements to enhance their characteristics. Brass has a strong tensile strength and corrosion resistance. They are ideal for hot forging. When compared to other metals, free machining brass sets the standard for machining.

Brass is classified into two types. The alpha alloys contain less than 37% zinc, while the beta alloys contain 37-45% zinc. Alpha alloys are ductile and cold workable. Duplex or alpha|beta alloys have a restricted cold ductility. It is 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.

 Applications of CZ108 | CW508L

CZ108 | CW508L Brass is typically used in Scientific Applications, Radiators, Heat Exchangers, and Decorative.

The CZ108 | CW508L Brass is used for a variety of decorative components as well as general components. Such as heat exchangers, lamp caps, lamp-holder, switch components, and general copper-smithing work.

chains, eyelets, fasteners, hinges, locks, instrument covers, and blanked articles such as instrument plates and wheels. Other uses include cold-headed items including pins, rivets, screws, springs, radiator tanks, and torch cases.
