Engineering Steel is a steel that has had small amounts of one or more alloying elements (other than carbon) such as such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum added. This produces specific properties that are not found in regular carbon steel.
Engineering Steels are workhorses of industry because of their economical cost, wide availability, ease of processing, and good mechanical properties. Alloy steels are generally more responsive to heat and mechanical treatments than carbon steels.
Brass Square Bar CZ121 is a square shaped CZ121 Brass Alloy bar.
CZ121 Brass Alloy is a free-machining brass consisting of a duplex phase structure with a 3% lead content.
It is suited to high speed machining operations due its superior machinability, thread rolling and knurling characteristics.
Particles of lead are finely dispersed throughout the microstructure, acting as both a lubricant and a chip breaker to give the alloy its free-machining characteristics.
CZ121 Brass Alloy’s machinability rating of 100 is the standard against which all copper alloys are rated. It offers good strength, is easily soldered or brazed and has good resistance to corrosion.
