CZ121 | CW614N - Free Machining Brass

 CZ121 | CW614N Free Machining 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.

CZ121 | CW614N is an alpha/beta alloy. Brass alloy CZ121 | CW614N is used for machining. It has Lead added to the composition to improve machinability. The Lead remains insoluble in the microstructure of the brass and the soft particles act as chip breakers.

CZ121 | CW614N corresponds to the following Brass Alloy Grade but not be a direct equivalent to UNS C38500 or CuZn39Pb3. CZ121 | CW614N Brass Alloy is supplied as a round, flat, square, and hexagon bar, Hollow Bar.

CZ121 | CW614N Brass Alloy Grade is also known as Machine Grade.

 Applications of CZ121 | CW614N Free Machining Brass
