Brass C260

Grade Summary: Brass C260 has been produced as a combination of copper and zinc, it has the highest ductility in the yellow brass series. It is an attractive material with a smooth, yellow brass finish and it can have a polished or brushed (satin) finish. C260 Brass can be used in corrosive enviroments. C260 Brass forms a thin protective patina ( layer ),which, unlike steel and iron, will not rust when exposed to the atmosphere. It has excellent cold workability and is used extensively in the automotive industry, also in the manufacturing of plumbing, hardware, and ammunition components.

Typical Applications: Air instruments and machines, heat exchangers, pump cylinders, wire screens, pumps, liners, power cylinders, Odometer contacts, heater cores, thermostats, electrical connectors, radiator cores, radiator tube, radiator tanks, Snaps, planters, fireplace screens, etched articles, bird cages, coinage, chain links, pen/pencil, lamps, inserts and clips, syringe parts, watch parts, costume jewelry, buttons, shells – electrical sockets in the automotive industry, also in the manufacturing of plumbing, hardware, and ammunition components. pressure conveyer systems, sound proofing equipment, springs, chain, bead chain.
