Brass Round Bar Stock Supplier
Brass round bar stock is used as the raw material for thousands of brass components in the building, machinery, equipment, transportation, and industrial markets. Wieland Chase is the leading brass stock supplier and brass rod manufacturer in the USA.
Compared to other materials, brass rod is an excellent solution for high-speed drilling, tapping, and milling operations. It is a relatively soft metal and has minimal wear on tools. Brass is corrosion resistant which makes it ideal for use to manufacture parts that will be used in corrosive environments including water treatment, marine and coastal areas, and industrial facilities.
Brass rod and stock can be cut into smaller pieces for melting or machinability. Brass is suited well for applications where electrical conductivity may be important along with good strength and low corrosion. Often used for decorative purposes, brass has a smooth finish, a gold-like appearance, and a natural antimicrobial characteristic.
