Brass

A metal alloy of copper, zinc, and usually some lead. Brass is harder and stronger than copper because of its zinc content; lead contributes malleability and ductility. Machined brass plumbing products are often made from Copper Development Association (CDA) 360 series brass which contains about 65 percent copper, 32 percent zinc, and 3 percent lead.
