Red Brass: Red brass (CuZnSn) is also colloquially called gunmetal. The two main characteristics of the brass are good cold workability and hot formability. Its use is employed for making fasteners, condensers, heat exchanger tubing, conduits, sockets, fire extinguishers, plumbing pipes, radiator cores etc.
Forging Brass: The brass contains 59.5% Cu, 2.0% Pb and 38.0%Zn and can be expounded as excellent hot workability. It is used for various kinds of forgings and pressings.
Cartridge Brass: Cartridge brass has 70% Cu and 30% zinc and is known for its excellent cold working properties. Its applications include grill work, pins, radiator cores & tanks, ammunition components, flashlight shells, lamp fixtures, plumbing brass goods locks, fasteners, screws, springs, stencils, hinges, plumbing accessories and rivets.
High Brass: It is a 65% copper and 35% zinc brass. The brass has excellent tensile strength and is also characterized by moderate cold workability. It is used for clock plates & nuts, gears, wheels & channel plates, bearing cages, clocks & watch backs, book dies, type characters, hinges, keys, lock parts, lock tumblers, strike plates, templates, hose couplings, washers and wear plates.
Low Brass: Low brass has 80% Cu and 20% zinc, and has a light golden color. The brass has astoundingly good ductility and is also known for its cold workability. It is used for clock dials, battery caps bellows, flexible metal hoses, musical instruments, pump lines, metal bellows and flexible hose.
Naval Brass: The brass comprises of 60.0% Cu, 39.2% Zn, 0.8% Sn, and is known for its hot forgeability and hot workability. Its various applications include rivets, valve stems, aircraft turnbuckle barrels, balls, bolts, marine hardware, nuts, propeller shafts, welding rod and condenser plates.
