CZ131 | CW606N - Riveting & Turning Brass

 CZ131 | CW606N Brass Alloy Grade

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.

The 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.

CZ131 | CW606N is an alpha/beta alloy. The composition of brass alloy CZ131 | CW606N has been designed to provide a compromise between machinability, ductility, and strength. Thus, it can be used in applications when machinability and riveting are required.

CZ131 | CW606N corresponds to the following brass alloy grade but not be a direct equivalent to UNS C35300 | ISO CuZn37Pb2. CZ131 | CW606N is supplied as a bar.

 Applications of CZ131 | CW606N Brass Alloy Grade

CZ131 | CW606N is typically used in Fasteners, Rivets, Domestic appliances, Automotive engineering, Hose fittings, Intricate parts, and clock components.

The CZ131 | CW606N is also used for nuts, rivets, screws, and other headed components, together with builders hardware, plumbing fittings, faucet seats, instrument parts, clock and watch components, battery terminals, and other parts requiring good machinability and reasonable cold-forming.
