Naval Brass C46400 Details
Naval Brass C46400 (CuZn39Sn1) is a 60/40 alpha beta brass with the addition of 1% tin, which aids the alloy to resist dezincification in sea water corrosion applications.
The tin also gives additional strength to the alloy without significantly reducing the ductility associated with 60/40 brass.
Naval Brass C46400 has excellent hot working characteristics which enables the alloy to be close die forged into valve bodies and other complex shaped components and can be cold worked to increase the strength.
This enables the alloy to be supplied in the half hard or fully hard condition.
Additionally, Naval Brass C46400 is used in the form of a flat product for condenser end plates in water treatment and desalination plants.
C46400 can be joined by soldering, brazing and oxyacetylene welding, and has a machinability rating of 30% compared with free machining brass at 100%.
