Brasses

All these brasses contain lead in order to facilitate the machinability, either directly from the rod, free-cutting, or after hot pressing.
They have an excellent machinability index.
Applications include electrical systems, connections for fluids, automotive equipment, lock industry...
Some of our brasses meet nonmagnetic criteria (very low iron content).
According to the European Directive RoHS, the percentage of lead contained in our alloys is lower than 4 percent.
