Naval Brass has good strength and rigidity and is noted for its resistance to wear, fatigue and stress cracking. It is readily soldered, brazed and welded. The addition of tin to makes for extra corrosion resistance in seawater and other mildly aggressive environments.
Naval Brass alloy’s are a very good choice for the manufacture of components to be used in a marine environment such as precision shipboard equipment, condenser plates, bushings, bearings, heat exchanger tube, turn buckles, shafting, , decorative fittings, marine
hardware, missile components, baffle plates, flanges, and fittings. Naval Brass also comes in C46200, C46400, C48200, C48500 alloys.
