Brass fastener is a stationary product, which is used for securing multiple sheets of paper together. The fastener is inserted into punched holes in the stack of paper and the leaves, or tines, of the legs are separated and bent over to secure the paper. It holds the pin in place and the sheets of paper together. These holes can be made using the sharp end of the fastener. Brass fasteners are also used for door hardware. A brass fastener is similar in design and function to the mechanical counterpart cotter pins.
Brass Flanges consist of copper and zinc, the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brass flanges each with unique properties. Brass flanges are relatively resistant to tarnishing. Brass has an excellent flow characteristic, which helps in casting flanges quickly. Brass flanges have good malleability, flexibility and high heat resistance. Some of the flanges are made up of special brass called dezincification resistant brasses, which is used in large corrosion risk and where normal brasses do not meet the standards also it is used in applications with high water temperatures, chlorides present and deviating water qualities.
