Brass Analysis Testing

“Brass” refers to a variety of zinc-copper alloys with superior thermal conductivity and a number of other properties that change with composition. Depending upon the alloy’s ratio, brass is often regarded for its strength, ductility, color, hardness, machinability, corrosion resistance, and antimicrobial characteristics. SGS MSi Testing specializes in chemical analysis of brass and metallurgical testing for all metals and alloys. Meeting the most stringent project specifications, our chemists and engineers perform testing to meet ASTM and other industry standards.

Brass is regarded for its versatility. Due to thermal conductivity, the alloy is commonly used in the manufacture of radiators and heat exchangers. Its microbial qualities make it a good option for hospital surfaces, as well. Other brass applications include:

  • Nuts & bolts
  • Bushes & bearings
  • Marine hardware
  • Hydraulic fittings
  • Gearbox components
  • Plumbing hardware
  • Radiator cores
  • Electrical terminals
  • Ornamental trim
  • Door handles
  • Appliance trim
  • Springs
  • Woodwind instrument components

Partnering with the marine, automotive, manufacturing, construction, electrical and hardware industries, among others, SGS MSi provides customers with an accurate, easy-to-understand brass composition analysis. Tailoring testing to your specific needs, our chemical analyses include:

  • OEM Spectroscopy
  • ICP Mass Spectrometry
  • Leco Analysis
  • Alloy Verification & Identification
  • XRF Analysis
  • Re-melt Capability
  • Microwave Digestion
  • Positive Material Identification Testing

When you need to supplement brass composition analysis with other services, such as failure analysis, corrosion testing and product safety testing, SGS MSi is a single source for most metallurgical expertise. For over 30 years, we have prioritized service with our customer-focused approach and expedited turnarounds. Your sample is carefully tracked on its journey through our 30,000-square-foot facility, and we utilize high-tech air tube delivery, bar code scanning, and airport display technology to achieve this.
