Brass is an alloy of both copper and zinc.
The metal can have varying amounts of zinc or other elements added. These varying mixtures produce a wide range of properties and variation in color. Increased amounts of zinc provide the material with improved strength and ductility. Brass can range in color from red to yellow depending on the amount of zinc added to the alloy.
Having low friction and acoustic properties, Brass is one of the most popular metals to use when making musical instruments.
It’s commonly used as a decorative metal because of its resemblance to gold. Other applications include architectural uses, condenser/heat exchangers, plumbing, radiator cores, musical instruments, locks, fasteners, hinges, ammunition components, and electrical connectors.
The metal is also germicidal which means it can kill microorganisms on contact.
