Enhancement of Corrosion Resistance in BrassThe second component of brass is zinc. The percentage of zinc varies from 5% and 40% by density depending on the type of brass. Brasses with higher percentages of zinc are stronger and harder, but they are also more difficult to form and is used to prevent corrosion, However there are other elements which can further improve corrosion resistance.
Arsenic and antimony are sometimes added to brasses that contain more than 20% zinc in order to inhibit corrosion. Chromium enhances corrosion resistance to a maximum.
Application Engineering through Optimal Selection of BrassThe conventional naming for different Brass types is commonly reflected either through the color material or through its intended use. Let us take some example, the yellow brass contained 35% zinc and had a yellowish color, while the red brass contains 15% zinc and had a reddish colour.
The Cartridge brass which contains 30% of zinc was used to make firearm cartridges. Whereas the Naval brass had up to 39.7% of zinc and were used in several applications on ships. As, Zinc provides the needed Corrosion protection needed when brass component is exposed to salt water.
Unfortunately, scattered among the traditional brass names were a number of misnomers. Brass with 10% zinc was called commercial bronze. These brasses are harder and more resistance to corrosion can be brazed or soldered. Its appealing color makes it to be used in Door Knobs, Kick Plates. It can be also used in valves and marine applications.
In US a unique method called “Unified Numbering System” is used to specify for metal and alloys. In this system an alphabetical letter is used – for example in this case the letter “C” is used for Copper, as of brass is a copper alloy- succeeded by five digits.
The Chemical composition in the Brass makes them appropriate for being shaped into the end product by using mechanical methods like forging or rolling, these are called as ‘Wrought Brasses’. Here the first digit of their designation is I through 7. A Brass whose chemical configuration makes them appropriate for being shaped into end product by flowing into a mold are called ‘Cast Brasses’, and the first digit of their designation will be 8 or 9.The Brass Precision Components have So many Good Features.
