MetalSheets supplied Mirror Polished Brass sheet to Black Island Studios, London, for the film shoot for the Cheryl Cole L’Oreal Elvive Elnett television advert. Brasses are primarily alloys of copper and zinc, the percentage of zinc in the alloy is what produces the different grades and appearances. Each grade of brass has unique properties.

Metalsheets stocks primarily traditional yellow brass, it is a popular general purpose brass though we supply other grades to order.

Yellow Brass is a high purity cold forming brass, its composition is 63% copper and 37% zinc.

Below is General information on a selection of brasses based on copper to zinc ratio:

            • Guilding Metal:
              • (90% Cu + 10% Zn), CZ101, Bronze Gold colour, typically used for Architectural Features, Ornamental Trim, Jewellery, Vitreous Enamel Base, Badges.
            • Guilding Metal:
              • (85% Cu + 15% Zn), CZ102, Tan Gold colour, Red Brass, typically used for Architectural Applications.
            • Brass:
              • (80% Cu + 20% Zn), CZ103, Golden Colour, typically used for Decorative Trim.
            • Cartridge Brass:
              • (70% Cu + 30% Zn), CZ106, Green Gold colour, Highly ductile, good cold forming properties.
            • Common Brass:
              • (63% Cu + 37% Zn), CZ 108, Yellow colour, General Purpose Brass

(59% Cu + 39% Zn + 2% PB), CZ120, Brass Plaque colour, Contains a little lead for easy machining.

Brass is characterised by its versatile properties which are modified by changing the ratios of copper and zinc and by adding other elements such as tin and aluminum.

Changing the alloy compositions affects: machinability, cold working properties, brazing properties, ductility, plateability, corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, impact resistance and colour.

CZ108 cross references are: UNS – C27200,  ISO – CuZn37,  EN – CW508L
