BRASS ALLOYS
 
C23000 - (Red Brass, 85%) Commonly used for pipe and pipe nipples. Excellent cold working properties; common fabrication processes include forming and bending, threading and knurling. Red Brass is the best quality pipe for general plumbing purposes. It has high corrosion-resistance to water. Furnished in semi-annealed condition.

C26000 - (Cartridge Brass, 70%) Non-leaded brass available in sheet, plate, and tube. This alloy offers the best combination of strength and ductility of all copper-base alloys. Soft temper is widely used for severe cold working operations such as deep drawing and spinning, half hard for stamping and light bending and forming, spring temper combines mild rigidity with good appearance. Typical uses include architectural, automotive, hardware, industrial, and munitions. Excellent cold working properties.

C27200 - (Yellow Brass) Available in tube. Excellent cold working properties.

C27400 - (Yellow Brass) Available in tube. Excellent cold working properties.

C33000 - (Low Leaded Brass) Available in tube. The addition of low amounts of lead allow for some degree of machinability, together with moderate cold working properties.

  C33500 - (Low Leaded Brass) Available in tube. The addition of low amounts of lead allow for some degree of machinability, together with moderate cold working properties.

C35300/35600 - (High Leaded Brass) Available in sheet and plate. Machinability ratings of 90 and 100, respectively. Common fabrication processes include blanking, machining, piercing and punching, and stamping.

C36000 - (Free Cutting Brass) Available in rod and bar. With a machinability rating of 100, it is the standard against which all other copper alloys are rated. Ideally suited for high speed machining; also has excellent thread rolling and knurling properties. Good mechanical and corrosion-resistant properties. This alloy is the most popular copper base rod alloy for general screw machine work.
