Brass and Bronze: Staples in Investment Casting

Brass and bronze are similar materials with similarly beneficial characteristics. Both materials exhibit excellent machinability and corrosion resistance, are non-sparking, lack magnetism, and provide unique wear characteristics and aesthetics.

Brass and bronze are a common investment casting material, used in a variety of industries and applications. Some of these include metering, fluid power, hardware and locks, power generation, art, along with many others.
