C37710

Brass essentially encompasses an alloy composed primarily of copper and zinc. Brass alloys inherently offer malleability, allowing for ease in shaping, and are accessible in a diverse spectrum of colors. Importantly, brass boasts remarkable thermal conductivity. Forgeability is a commendable attribute of UNS C37710 forging brass alloys, which are provided in the form of rods.
