CZ120 (CW612N)

Brass Alloy

CZ120 Brass Alloy

CZ120 is commonly known as an engraving brass which is primarily available in sheet form.

Free Cutting Brass

The alloy has excellent free-cutting properties due to a 2% addition of lead. With an attractive combination of strength and corrosion resistance, this alpha-beta brass also has good hot formability. This alloy, however, is not suitable for acid-etched work due to its duplex phase structure.


CZ120 offers good corrosion resistance with free cutting characteristics. The alloy promotes excellent hot formability with excellent machining qualities.

Typical Applications

Commercial applications for this engineering material include:

  • Nameplates
  • Valves
  • Gears

We stock CZ120 in plate, sheet and strip.
