CZ114 | CW721R - High Tensile Brass

 CZ114 | CW721R High Tensile Brass

Brass is an 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 classes. 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.

CZ114 | CW721R is a duplex or alpha/beta alloy. Brass alloy CZ114 | CW721R is a versatile high strength, hot workable, machinable engineering alloy sometimes referred to as a Manganese Bronze or High Tensile Brass.

CW721R | CZ114 Brass corresponds to the following brass alloy grade but not be a direct equivalent to UNS C67500. CZ114 is also sometimes called Manganese Bronze. CZ114 | CW721R Brass alloy is supplied as Bar.
