Cu Zn 36 : brass for machining
Brass CuZn36, as its designation indicates, is composed of 36% zinc and 64% copper. Also known as C36000, it is a brass that is easy to cut, weld and machine. With its corrosion resistance, modelling, machinability (machinability rate of 100) and threading qualities, CUZN36 brass is very well suited for high-speed machining operations.
