Heavy brasss

Brass is a metallic alloy that is made of copper and zinc. The proportions of zinc and copper can vary to create different types of brass alloys with varying mechanical and electrical properties. It is a substitutional alloy: atoms of the two constituents may replace each other within the same crystal structure.

 

Steel is an alloy of iron, and brass is a copper-zinc alloy. Brass can be cast or machined into everything from candle sticks to gold-imitating jewelry, whereas steel is stronger and harder, and steel applications are more commonly used by construction companies and industries.

An alloy composed of zinc, tin, lead and copper, should be made by forming the three first metals into an alloy and casting them into ingots, then melting the copper, and adding this alloy to it. By this mode of making the copper alloy, a very superior casting is obtained.

Characteristics. The exact properties of different brasses depend on the composition of the brass alloy, particularly the copper-zinc ratio. In general, however, all brasses are valued for their machinability or the ease with which the metal can be formed into desired shapes and forms while retaining high strength.

Brass is a great material, especially around the house, because it does not rust. It may corrode, and it will tarnish if it is not protected with lacquer or other clear finish, but what the heck-when it tarnishes you can call it antique brass.
