Gamma Brass Plus High Performance Coated EDM Wire is a patented, proprietary wire made exclusively for Single Source Technologies by one of the world's leading coated wire manufacturers. It is made to highest quality standards and protocols in Vietnam.
Gamma Brass Plus High Performance Coated EDM Wire consists of a Cu63Zn37 brass core which is coated with a proprietary layer of gamma phase brass. The patented proprietary gamma phase coating is a discontinuous layer of Cu35Zn65 brass which promotes efficient cutting due to its high zinc content, tenacious bond to the core material, and flushing assist provided by the “porous” nature of the discontinuous coating. Cutting speed increases of up to 35% over plain brass wire and 15% over regular zinc-coated brass wire have been reported.
Gamma Brass Plus provides increased performance levels in most machines and applications at only a moderate increase in cost. It is available in a wide range of diameters, tensile strengths, spool sizes, and spool weights.
