Brass wire is a copper zinc alloy and is available in a range of alloys from 90% copper / 10% zinc to 63% copper / 37% zinc

The higher the percentage of zinc in the alloy the greater the cold working strength, whilst the higher the copper content the greater the ductility. Brass wire is manufactured in flat, round and square section in a full range of sizes and tempers to meet customer requirements.
