What Are The Properties Of Brass Mesh?
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, while stainless steel is an alloy of iron, carbon, and chromium. You can easily tell the difference between brass and stainless steel by knowing their compositions. For instance, iron is the only metal that makes ferrous metals rust fast. In terms of corrosion resistance, copper is better than iron. Brass is more corrosion-resistant than stainless steel. The addition of chromium to steel makes a whole lot of difference to its ability to resist rust, but it is still susceptible to corrosion at some degree.
Brass is the cheapest and most efficient metal when it comes to thermal and electrical conductivity, as well as having a higher expansion coefficient, making it perfect for high temperature applications. It also has the best machinability, which makes it the most popular metal for applications that require small, precise metal pieces.
Stainless steel is a widely used, durable metal. It can resist most acids, apart from highly concentrated nitric acid. Despite this, it is more corrosive-resistant than brass in marine environments, and it can be passivated in either citric or nitric acid.
- Bending & Forming – Excellent. This wire mesh was produced using solid brass wire, this is light and flexible so it the finished structure is malleable
- Corrosion Resistance – Excellent. Brass will lose colour over time in certain conditions, but it will not rust as it contains no iron
- Filtration – Good. This specification was originally woven to be used as a filter mesh. It will filter out all particles that are 2.55mm or larger
- Welding – Possible. Providing you use an Argon and Carbon Dioxide mixture as shielding gas you can MIG welded brass mesh
- Painting – Good. Any type of permanent paint can be employed to cover brass mesh. However the holes are large in number, so paint may clog the aperture of the mesh
Is This Pure Brass?
This material is made of ‘pure’ brass. Brass is not actually a natural metal and is made up of 65% copper and 35% zinc It is yellow gold in colour, which many find to be a pleasing appearance, making it ideal for decorative purposes.
As a pure brass this product will become verdigris over time. Brass is a very soft metal, so it is easy to cut and form.
Alloys have been around for thousands of years, and have helped build and create many different things. There are many different alloys out there, but two of the most important and useful are brass and stainless steel.
These are both very useful in many different things, such as construction, transportation, machine building, and plumbing.
