CZ108 (CW508L) Brass AlloyCZ108 (CW508L) Brass Alloy

CZ108/CW508L is referred to as a basic brass containing 37% zinc.

Classified predominantly as an alpha brass, CZ108 is a popular material grade due to its hot and cold working properties. It is a high purity cold forming brass and is used where severe bending properties are required. The material can be machined but only at slow speed with very light feeds.

Key Features:

CZ108 offers good corrosion to excellent resistance with good cold heading properties. Machining properties are reasonable with very good bending properties. The weldability of the alloy is excellent when soldering or brazing and oxyacetylene welding is also good.
