Brass Alloy 360 - Free-Cutting Brass - Fry Steel

Brass/Bronze / BRASS 360

Brass Alloy 360, free cutting, half hard alloy consists of a 60-40 mixture of copper and zinc providing good strength and corrosion resistance. A small amount of lead provides the superior machinability. Free-Cutting Brass is an available and affordable alternative to leaded steel. Half-hard describes the strength condition, or temper, which is usually specified for screw machine products. This materials ductility is significantly higher than steels and the strength is comparable. Our brass is purchased to meet chemistry requirements rather than physical requirements. For that reason, physical properties are generally not provided unless requested prior to production. The material can be sent to a third party by the purchaser after production to be tested for physical properties, but the material is not rejectable upon these test results. (CDA C36000)
