Brass casting

Are you looking for a specialist in brass casting? For 50 years, we have been producing high-quality castings for a wide range of industries. Known for its golden-yellow glow, brass is now widely used in environments with LNG. You can come to our foundry for casting single pieces and small series.

What is brass?

Brass is an alloy composed mainly of copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn), but it can also contain small amounts of other elements. Because of its colour, it is also called 'yellow copper'. Brass is a hard material that can be cast in thin layers, making it ideal for fine, detailed designs. Think ornaments, statues, door knobs, handles, hinges, locks and much more. You will also find the use of brass in industrial applications.

Another advantage of brass is that it does not rust. An oxidation layer may form on the metal, but this can be polished away with good brass polish. A thin layer of lacquer helps prevent tarnishing. It is also easy to reuse and therefore particularly durable. Around ninety per cent of all brass products are recycled. Brass scrap is collected and remelted in the foundry.

Casting your brass product

At Fenix Industries, we use our expertise in brass casting to manufacture high-quality products. This expertise enables us to produce castings for a wide range of industries. Our brass foundry uses the sand casting method, where a mould made of sand is used to cast the molten brass. This allows us to produce high-quality castings in a short time.

Whether brass casting is a good choice for your product depends on your specific needs and the type of product. We will be happy to provide you with advice.

Brass as an alternative to bronze

Brass and bronze are both copper alloys that are very similar. Brass is somewhat yellow in colour and bronze is more red/pink in colour. When a copper alloy contains more than 60 per cent copper and zinc is not a main component, it is called bronze.

Bronze is traditionally used for sculptures and artistic applications because of its striking colour and durability. Brass is often used as a cost-effective alternative to bronze. The choice between bronze and brass for a project depends on the application. Brass has excellent machining properties and bronze offers excellent corrosion resistance. Fenix Industries will assist you in choosing the right material.
