C24000 (ASTM B36) Low Brass Alloy Data Specifications
Low Brass, named for its relatively low zinc content, is a choice of many design engineers for applications where strength and formability are required. Due to the higher content of zinc found in this alloy, compared to Red Brass it develops a beautiful antique brass color when chemically treated making it ideal from many decorative or architectural applications. Other advantages of C240 include: high solderability, high fatigue limit, and excellent grain size control.
