Brass Alloys

Brass Alloys

NBM Metals has a long family heritage in the manufacture of extruded brass alloys.  We have direct familial ties to the largest brass and bronze extrusion mill in Southern Africa.  With our modern and versatile mills producing a broad range of extruded brass, copper and wrought bronze alloys in rod, bar, tube, rectangles, wire, hollow bars, and profiles, we have a strong competitive edge.

Our in-house design and maintenance of brass alloy provides exceptional quality and craftsmanship, which extends to servicing even the most demanding of applications.  One of the most significant aspects of our mill is the fact that we have four extrusion presses utilizing indirect and direct extrusion processes maximizing our range of capabilities in providing a wide variety of alloys, shapes and sizes.

We carry a wide range of brasses including Lead Free, Red Brass, Dezincification resistant machine brass and many more.  Select your brass alloy and request a quote for a quick response!

Red Brass

Red brass is the most durable of all metals for commercial water pipe in the practical price range. It is excellent for resistance to dezincification and season cracking for which the high copper brasses are known.

Yellow Brass

NBM carries yellow brass in C26000 (Cartridge Brass), C27000, C27200 and C27400. These brasses have relatively good corrosion resistance, moderately high strength, and in some forms it has very good ductility.

Leaded Brass

Lead brass have high machinability and atmospheric corrosion resistance. The machinability of brass is increased by the addition of lead.

Naval Brass

Naval Brass is the classic marine, high strength and corrosion resistant alloy containing nominally 60% copper, .75% tin and 39.2% zinc.

Free Machining Brass

C36000 is the most versatile and commonly used copper ally bar stock used in both the North and South American Markets, second only to copper itself!
