When exposed to a variety of chemical corrosives, industrial settings, and marine conditions, a brass sheet offers good corrosion resistance. Brass is a soft, ductile metal that is simple to braze, cut, and machine. Brass sheets are frequently used for decorative purposes due to their smooth, bright, and gold-like look. They need little work to polish to a high shine.
Due to its high workability and durability, it is also frequently utilized to manufacture musical instruments and various precision parts. We offer to manufacture any product or metal part from brass sheet material. Our capabilities can support any brass sheet design and finish.

Brass Sheet Available Grades
This brass alloy is known as cartridge brass, and it is used to fabricate ammunitions, automobiles, fasteners, and hardware. Moreover, it has great cold working properties.
Alloy 464 has remarkable resistance to corrosion caused by seawater. Additionally, it is suitable for welding, soldering, brazing, drawing, bending, and hot shaping.
Because of its great machinability, alloy 353 (also known as clock brass) is frequently used to create precision components, such as clock and watch parts.
This alloy, also referred to as free cutting brass, is the most popular kind of brass. It is very machinable and formable, and it works well for brazing and soldering operations.
Brass Sheet FAQ
Brass is frequently used for items like locks and hinges, plumbing fixtures, handles and railings, and electrical components and is most frequently employed as an accent. Architectural features and accents frequently make use of brass sheet metal and other brass items.
Metal shears and snips are used to cut a brass sheet. Also, laser-cutting is available.
Molten copper and zinc are mixed in the manufacturing process used to produce brass, and the mixture is then allowed to harden. It is then rolled out into a sheet.
Brass sheets can be bent using our press brakes and other equipment.
