What Is Brass Round Rod

Brass round rod is a rod-shaped object made of copper and zinc alloy. It is named for its yellow color. Brass containing 56% ~ 68% copper has a melting point of 934 ~ 967 degrees. Brass has good mechanical properties and wear resistance. It can be used to manufacture precision instruments, ship parts, gun casings, etc.

With different zinc content, there will be different colors. For example, when the zinc content is 18% - 20%, it will be red and yellow, while when the zinc content is 20% - 30%, it will be brown and yellow.

The application of brass rod: air conditioning pipe, refrigerator pipe, oil pipe, water supply pipe and various mechanical supporting materials, automobile synchronizer gear ring, marine pump, valve, structural parts, friction accessories, etc.

Now we take the H59 and H62 brass rod as example to show more details about brass round.

H59 brass has the cheapest price, high strength and hardness and poor plasticity, but it can still withstand pressure processing in hot state, with general corrosion resistance, and other properties are similar to H62. It is used for general machine parts, weldments, hot stamping and hot rolling parts.

Copper content 59%, also known as daily brass. It is widely used to electrical appliances, electronics, lighting, hardware, horizontal mounting, switches washer, gasket, battery contact piece, copper button, watch belt, decorative necklace, bracelet, ring and other copper products.

H62 brass has good mechanical properties, good plasticity in hot state and cold state, good machinability, easy brazing and welding, corrosion resistance, but easy to produce corrosion cracking. In addition, the price is cheap. It is an ordinary brass variety used by recidivists. It is used for various deep drawing and bending parts, such as pins, nails, washers, nuts, conduits, barometer springs, screens, radiator parts, etc.
