We stock brass round bars for environments requiring low friction and durability and they do contribute much in seawater applications.
Advance Grinding Services maintains its supply of brass round bars that possess high machinability for specific applications. We do extend our production of metal products with high tolerance and specified to exact and desired cuts, lengths, and sizes to meet every requirement upon your manufacturing processes.
Brass round bars are known for its corrosion resistance and strength with properties resembling that of steel which is one of the most popular copper alloys used today.
360 brass is known due to its strength and corrosion resistance with properties and features that are similar to that of steel. It is considered as one of the most popular copper alloys that are widely used nowadays. This type of round bar can be easily precision machined. Even though it is ductile in a softened stage, 360 Brass can be a strong material that can work and maintain its strength even undergoing demanding conditions. It is a high-density material which can be suited for heavy industrial parts.
Advance Grinding Services inventory of products includes Brass Round Bars that are eminently used in applications like couplings, connectors, bushings, screw machine parts, fittings, circuit board relays, switches, nuts, bolts, electronic components, valve stems and valve components, brackets, pump shafts, fixtures, frames, musical instruments, electrical equipment, seawater lines, and desalination fields.

The Basics of Aluminum Alloy
Aluminum is the most abundant metal in Earth’s crust after silicon and oxygen. It has a silvery-white appearance and contains a lot of valuable mechanical properties. It possesses 60% of the electrical conductivity of copper, with much lower density, making it a lightweight material perfect for aircraft and aerospace construction.
Pure aluminum is soft and ductile, but it can be strengthened when it is alloyed with other elements like magnesium, copper, and silicon. Such alloys possess better corrosion resisting properties, with a protective oxide coating that is achieved and enhanced through the process of anodization. Their lightweight and non-toxic mechanical properties enable them to be easily machined and cast. One good thing about aluminum is that it is recyclable, which can save considerable amounts of energy. They only need to undergo a melting process in order for them to be reused.
Aluminum alloys have low density, therefore, they are lightweight which is one of the key factors to consider in constructing an aircraft and its vital parts. Other important properties they possess are malleability, high strength, easy machining, good electrical and thermal conductivity, and excellent corrosion resistance.
Aluminum in the Aviation Industry
80 percent of commercial transport aircraft frames are made up of aluminum. This alloy is the top choice for the construction of aircraft and parts like wings and fuselage. Most navy aircraft are mainly made of fabricated aluminum. The focus on aluminum casting technology is continuing to earn recognition with its countless advantages in forming complex parts for aircraft structure. With a low manufacturing cost, Aluminum Alloy is the top choice for incorporating innovative and complicated design concepts in the aviation industry.
