Copper, Brass Sheet Metal, and Other Forgings Strengthen Utilities
"Aside from its electrical uses, brass is one of the copper alloys widely used in a variety of industries. Versatile brass sheet metal and other forgings are made into different system components. Most notably, brass is used for electrical contacts or connectors, bullet casings, nuts and bolts or screws, and plumbing hardware. Together with copper, brass generally makes up parts of electricity and wiring, heating and cooling, plumbing, and numerous other utilities. The resilience and conductivity of the metals enable the components to withstand varying temperatures and natural elements. What’s more, the metals are proven cost-efficient over alternatives like steel because they require less difficulty in machining."
