C31400 Leaded Commercial Bronze Hex
C31400 Leaded Commercial Bronze ASTM B140 Leaded Commercial Bronze C31400 combines the natural corrosion resistance of C22000 with the machinability typical of leaded brasses. Like C22000, it is an alpha brass nominally composed of 89% copper and 9% zinc, but it also contains approximately 2% lead to impart free-cutting characteristics. The relatively low zinc content of C31400 provides excellent corrosion resistance in potable water along with a pleasing golden color that matches C22000 hardware. Alloy C31400 is also suitable for outdoor use due to its resistance to stress corrosion cracking and to corrosion in general, but where the highest strength is not required. Typical Uses for C31400 Leaded Commercial Bronze: BUILDERS HARDWARE: Door Knobs ELECTRICAL: Connectors for Wire and Cable, Electrical Plug Type Connectors FASTENERS: Screws, Nuts INDUSTRIAL: Pickling Fixtures, Pickling Racks, Pickling Crates, Screw Machine Parts

C46400 Naval Brass "Lead Free" Hex
C46400 Naval Brass "Lead Free" Naval Brass C46400 is nominally composed of 60% copper, 39.2% zinc and 0.8% tin. As is typical of brass alloys with the duplex alpha + beta structure, C46400 has good strength and rigidity. By substituting tin for an equal quantity of zinc, a high corrosion resistance to seawater is achieved. The addition of tin also gives the alloy an inherent resistance to dezincification, thereby further inhibiting the impingement by seawater at higher than normal temperatures. The alloy is also noted for its resistance to wear, fatigue, galling, and stress corrosion cracking. Typical Uses for C46400 Naval Brass "Lead Free": BUILDERS HARDWARE: Lock Pins ELECTRICAL: Precision Shipboard Equipment FASTENERS: Rivets, Bolts, Nuts INDUSTRIAL: Welding Rod, Condenser Plates, Structural Uses, Valve Stems, Balls, Heat Exchanger Tube, Aircraft Turn Buckle Barrels, Bearings, Dies, Golf Ball Production, Pressure Vessels, Bearings, Bushings, Hub Cones MARINE: Properller Shafts, Marine Hardware, Decorative Fittings, Shafting, Propeller Shafts, Turn buckles ORDINANCE: Missle Components OTHER: Baffle Plates and Flanges PLUMBING: Fittings
