Price is not always the deciding factor but other intangibles can play a key role like order expediting, warehousing and an assembly department all of which we have. Let Continental Manufacturing be your source for brass CNC machining services.

Brass Characteristics

Brass has a number of features that has earned it some very specific applications and has allowed it to stand the test of time. Perhaps one of its most popular characteristics is its attractiveness that often does not require any finish (although it is also easy to polish). Brass also features cost-effective durability, corrosion resistance and a tight seal, which is part of the reason why it is used so widely in plumbing and steam work. In addition, brass’s low coefficient of friction has given it use in engineering applications.
