Often referred to as a cartridge brass, CW505L / CZ106 brass alloy is an alpha brass with less than 37% zinc which is a ductile alloy that can be cold worked.
Combined with high corrosion characteristics and high tensile strength, this free-machining brass includes many small alloying elements to provide beneficial properties. CZ106 possesses excellent cold workability and superior deep drawing properties and combines strength and ductility.
CZ106 offers good corrosion resistance and provides an optimum combination of strength & ductility for alpha brasses. With excellent deep drawing characteristics, the alloy has superb cold-forming properties. Weldability is good when soldering or brazing.
