Metal material is easy to rust. Especailly in wet situation. But brass cable glands are not. Becasue brass is a kinds of corrosion resistant metal. Furthermore, we often plated nickel in brass cable glands outside. So it is harder to rust.


2.Brass cable glands are explosion-proof sometimes.

3.Brass cable glands are cheaper than stainless steel cable glands.
Stainless steel cable gland is the best quality cable gland in the world. But it is hard to make and expensive. As our experience, the same size stainless steel cable gland is higher 2-3times of brass cable gland.
