C26800 (ASTM B36) Yellow Brass Alloy Data Specifications
Yellow Brass, as it is commonly known, is among the highest zinc-containing brasses available to designers. Exhibiting a handsome yellow color associated with brasses this alloy finds use in many of the same applications as other high brasses. C268 offers similar mechanical and physical properties to that of other brasses and is often found in applications requiring an economical copper-based alloy. Designers considering applications requiring a material capable of heavy deep drawing should consider alloy C260.
