As a leading stockist of brass sheet, brass plate and brass bar, we've made it our top priority to help our customers buy brass flat bar online. Brass is a beautifully decorative alloy made of a composition of both zinc and copper with a distinctive gold-colour.
Bar CZ121 is the most popular grade of brass flat and we have this profile in abundance. It's ready to order from flat stock in standard sizes or if required, custom cutting is also available. Brass flat bar CZ121 has good to excellent corrosion resistance.
It has a duplex phase structure with a 3% lead content in this composition. Since lead is insoluble in the brass micro-structure, these soft particles are finely dispersed, acting as both a lubricant and chip breakers offering free-machining characteristics. Fabrication of brass bar works best in hot working, this brass alloy can be easily soldered or brazed.
You'll find brass flat in an array of applications in both domestic and commercial settings. This solid brass bar is a heavily machined alloy and can be transformed into almost anything. Typically found as the material of choice in musical instruments, locks, door handles, fixtures, railings and similar ironmongery.
The golden lustre offers an attractive finish in architectural and decorative applications such as staircases, thresholds and even radiators

Not all brass flat bar will bend with ease due to the composition of the added lead and the zinc. The brass thickness also plays a factor. Brass with a 1/8" thickness will bend easier than brass 1".
