Brass fittings

Brass is a yellowish shiny type of alloy, which mainly consists of copper and zinc, usually 67% copper and 33% zinc. Brass and Bronze are two completely different alloys since bronze mainly consists of copper and tin. Brass might also contain other elemental metals such as arsenic, phosphorous, aluminium, manganese and silicon. Lead has a low melting point, so in some cases, they are added in concentrations to increase the machinability of the brass.

What materials are fasteners made out of?


Fasteners are usually made from carbon steel. In fact, over 90% of them are made from this material. This is because carbon steel has many properties that make it ideal for industrial use, such as its workability, strength properties, and affordability. There are different types of 3 different types of carbon steel which have different properties.

These are:
1. Mild steels - Under 0.25% carbon content, inexpensive, great toughness and ductility.
2. Medium carbon - 0.25% - 0.60% carbon content, very ductile, good load carrying ability
3. Alloy steel - Either 1.65%+ manganese content, 0.60%+ silicon, copper content, 4%-chromium content, or contains a specified minimum content of aluminium, titanium, vanadium, nickel or any other element.

Other materials can be used in fasteners too. For example, I took a look at some supplier websites and found that some nuts, like the ones available at http://www.keyfasteners.co.uk/rail-nuts.htm, are available in many different materials, including steel, stainless steel, brass, bronze, light alloy and titanium.

what are some examples of metallic bonds


Metallic Bonding Examples
Like NaCl is an example for ionic bonding, various metals like iron (Fe), lithium (Li), potassium (K), gold (Au), silver (Ag) are all examples of metallic bonding. Even the alloys of metals are the perfect example of such bonds. Brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, Terfenol-D (a magnetostrictive alloy) and various chemical elements are some other examples of compounds that consist of metallic bonds. Most of the metals have only one or two valence electrons and their ionization energies are very low, that is, the valence electrons are not very tightly bound to the atom and they are easily mobile from one to the other atom. This ease with which mobile electrons move in a crystal lattice determines the bond, that means, ionic, covalent or metallic. The properties exhibited by metals are due as mentioned in the above paragraphs. For instance, consider gallium, molten gallium is a very non volatile liquid in its molten form and it is due to the strong metallic bonding in gallium.

Metallic bonding forms one of the various forms of chemical bonds studied in chemistry. This was some brief information on this form of bonding that is the main reason for various physical properties of metals.

What are the main metals consist in a knife's blade?


There are many metals used to assemble a knife, but the main blades are forged from bronze, copper, iron, steel, ceramics, and titanium. If you're buying a new knife I recommend to use titanium made knife, it's very high quality an titanium is the best stainless steel.
