The brasses are copper and zinc alloys. We make a distinction between binary brass (made only of copper and zinc) and ternary brass (where a third chemical element features as the alloy or other quaternary brass, in which different chemical elements are present).

The machinability of the copper-zinc binary alloys is good. However, the toughness causes the formation of very long chips; therefore lead is added, which disperses at the edge of the grain: In this way the shavings become very short or even powdery and tools undergo reduced wear and heating, resulting in improved quality and processing speed.

Other elements may be added to the alloy to obtain certain properties: manganese and tin increase corrosion resistance. Iron increases the breaking load; aluminum increases resistance to corrosion resistance and abrasion. Nickel improves the mechanical characteristics and resistance to corrosion.
Brass is a ductile and malleable material with a resistance to corrosion. Compared to copper it presents higher values of hardness, strength and fusibility.
