C26000 (ASTM B36) Cartridge Brass Alloy Data Specifications
The "work-horse" of all copper alloys, Cartridge Brass as it is often termed can be readily formed into thousands of different parts and has the strength to perform many useful functions. The unique properties of C260 have allowed this alloy to find application in everything from bullet cases and automotive terminals to door trim and even jewelry. With a warm yellow color and ability to accommodate severe forming/drawing this alloy is one of the most versatile commercial metals.
