Brass

Brass is identified as a compound of copper and zinc. Depending on the amount of zinc and copper, a number of different kinds of brass can be manufactured.
 
Because of its bright gold-like appearance, brass is generally used for purposes of decoration. It is used in mechanical devices that require low friction like locks, gears, bearings and doorknobs. It is also used in plumbing and electrical products. Brass is extensively found in musical instruments such as horns and bells. Due to its malleability and acoustic properties, this product is required mostly in devices where it is important that sparks not be struck. Hence, brass is commonly found on fittings and tools that are near explosive gases or live wires. One would also find brass on zippers.
 
Brass has a relatively low melting point of between 900 to 940 °C, depending on its composition. Almost 90% of all brass alloys are recycled. It can be easily collected from scrap metals because of its chemical properties. The brass is then transported to the foundry where it is melted. This melted brass is first made into billets, which is then heated and moulded into the desired form and size. In most cases aluminium is added to the brass to make it stronger and more corrosion resistant.
 
Even lead can be added to this product to enhance its machinability. However, due to the ill effects of high lead content in everyday items like keys, the mixing of brass with lead must be used sparingly.
