brass building parts

Ningbo Qili Brass is a strong, adaptable material that can be used in a variety of applications for building components or brass building parts. It resists corrosion and is a good conductor of heat and electricity.

Bronze is another name for the zinc and copper alloy known as brass. Despite the fact that its chemical makeup varies, most brasses have at least 40% copper and 5% zinc.

Corrosion Resistant

Ningbo Qili Brass building components are corrosion-resistant because they don't contain iron. With salt water, iron can trigger chemical reactions. This is advantageous for metal objects like boat fittings, propellers, submerged bearings, and other things that need top-notch corrosion resistance qualities.

Zinc content in brass alloys ranges from 32% to over 40%. Additional corrosion resistance is provided by this. The 32% zinc content of alpha-phase brasses gives them their reputation for malleability, low melting points, and effective cold working.

They can be forged, machined, and formed into intricate shapes. They can also be used for a wide range of things, such as electrical plugs and sockets as well as locks, hinges, gears, belts, ammunition casings, zippers, plumbing, hose couplings, and valves.

Due to its lower hardness than bronze, brass is more prone to stress cracking when in contact with corrosive substances like ammonia and amine. Dezincification is another option, which can result in brittleness and decreased strength.

Brass must resist dezincification by at least 15% according to NSF standards. Tin, arsenic, and phosphorus additions can further assist in lowering the likelihood of this corrosion issue.

If exposed to salt water or other harsh environments, brass can still corrode. In addition, exposure to acids, amines, and other chemicals can cause it to corrode.

Brass is therefore not the ideal material for many uses that demand a high level of corrosion resistance. If you need a high level of corrosion resistance, you might think about using aluminum or stainless steel.

Additionally, brass can be challenging to weld, particularly if it is zinc-rich. It is best to select alloys with less zinc for better weldability.

Handrails, balustrades, and other unique architectural elements that call for a high level of corrosion resistance frequently use brass. Brazing and soft soldering techniques are used to cast, form, or fabricate these building components. Depending on the alloy, they can be welded using MIG, TIG, or silver soldering techniques.
