CZ112 | CW712R - Naval Brass

 CZ112 | CW712R Naval 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.

CZ112 | CW712R is an alpha|beta alloy.

CZ112 | CW712R corresponds to the following brass alloy grade but may not be a direct equivalent to CuZn36Sn1Pb. CZ112 | CW712R Brass Alloy is supplied as Bar.

 Applications of CZ112 | CW712R

CZ112 | CW712R is often referred to as Naval Brass. It is typically used in a wide range of marine and mechanical applications, including Heat Exchanger Tubeplates, Bolts, Nuts, and Rivets, Other hardware for underwater applications, and Machined Components.
