Use brass for applications that require a soft, corrosive resistant material. Brass is also a great choice for projects that require shaping. It will also polish to a rich golden color. Brass is very easy to solder and braze, and accepts plating processes.
|Ultimate Tensile Strength||43,000|
|Machinability and Weldability
In its half-hard condition, 260 Brass has a machinability rating of 30 as compared to 360 brass rated at 100. 260 Brass has the highest ductility in the yellow brass series. Welding is not recommended, although 260 Brass has low to fair soldering and brazing capabilities. 260 Brass has poor butt-welding characteristics.
