What is brass, and where does it come from?

Although it is centuries old, it still impresses with its form, and its unique character and excellent capabilities inspire appreciation. Brass, as it is referred to, is an alloy of copper and zinc, where the content of the second element does not exceed 45%. The remaining component is copper, and possibly small additions of other metals, such as aluminum, chromium, iron, tin, or manganese, are also possible.

The history of brass is long – it was used as early as ancient times, melting copper with zinc ores (smitsonite, hemimorphite), as evidenced by objects discovered during archaeological excavations. However, a milestone in brass manufacturing was mastering the zinc distillation process, which took place in Zawar (India) in the 9th century AD. From there, the technology came to Europe, albeit many centuries later, as late as the first half of the 18th century. Since then, the possibilities offered by producing parts from an alloy of copper and zinc have been used more and more boldly.

Appearance and advantages of brass

The first thing that strikes the eye is the orange-yellow or golden-yellow color of brass (the color depends on the zinc content – the more, the more orange). Moreover, as with other copper alloys, its surface is covered with a bluish-green patina due to oxidation, protecting it from external agents and corrosion.

Brass is more durable than other alloys, especially various steel grades. It is also characterized by excellent thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity, ranging from 23-44% of the conductivity of pure copper. In addition, it is favorably distinguished by its high flexibility and elasticity and relatively high density (8.44 to 8.75 g/cm3), which translates into its weight. These characteristics make it well suited for machining, so at Sabner, precision manufacturing of brass parts is a crucial part of the business. We use several types of brass for manufacturing:

  • Binary brasses – contain only copper and zinc in different proportions. As the amount of zinc increases, the durability and strength of the alloy increases.
  • Lead brasses – contain an addition of lead, which makes the alloy softer and more easily machined.
  • High nickel brasses – the addition of nickel causes the color of the alloy to change to silver, shining when polished,
  • Special brasses – the alloy contains additions of elements such as aluminum, silicon, and chromium, thanks to which it gains resistance to rusting.

Application of brass

At Sabner, we have experience in manufacturing brass parts for various industries. Below are some of them:

  • Hydraulic industry – we manufacture valves, nipples, fittings, for example, from brass,
  • Pneumatic industry – we manufacture ferrules, nipples, bulkhead unions,
  • Electronics industry – from brass, we produce plug pins for devices measuring electric current voltage,
  • Automotive industry – We mainly produce brass inserts, overmolded with plastic, used to assemble vehicle interior components and components for LPG systems.
  • Home appliance industry – we manufacture high-quality nozzles for gas stoves,
