Metal Facts:
The word nickel means "deceiver" in German and was given to the ore (niccolite) because it was easily mistaken for copper ore. Nickel is a hard white metal used primarily as an alloying ingredient. It increases hardness and resistance to corrosion without impairing ductility.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, a combination that yields a yellow metal that is tougher then either of its components. Brass is widely used because of its malleability, machinability and its resistance to corrosion. Archeologists theorize that the earliest brasses were the result of accidentally reducing a combination of zinc and copper ores and date back to the Neolithic Age.

Bronze Fact: 
Besides being tougher than its parent metal of copper, bronze is more easily melted and cast and is less susceptible to corrosion. By varying the proportion of copper and tin in the mix, several alloys of differing properties are possible.

Farmer's Copper can relate somewhat to Ta Chen's "growing pains" as we recently moved our operations from our location on Galveston Island to 20 miles up the road on the mainland in Texas City. Our move marks new beginnings for our company giving us unity of our operations and improving our efficiency. We look forward to better servicing our customers!

DID YOU KNOW...
Brasses having less then 64% copper content are referred to as BETA BRASSES. These are especially noted for their excellent hot working properties. They have a relatively high tensile strength and qualities of hardness. They are not susceptible to much cold working, however, without intermediate anneals. 
Farmer's Copper carries these Beta Brasses in stock in C510 and C655. Call us today to inquire 800-231-9450.
