|Publication Date:||1 April 2019|
|ICS Code (Copper products):||77.150.30|
This specification establishes the requirements for copper-zinc-lead alloy (leaded-brass) rod, bar, wire, and shapes produced from Copper Alloys UNS Nos. C33500, C34000, C34500, C35000, C35300, C35330, C35350, and C35600. These alloys have nominal composition given in Table 1.
This product is suitable for applications requiring extensive machining before such cold-forming operations as swaging, flaring, severe knurling, or thread rolling.
NOTE 1-Refer to Appendix X1 for additional applications information.
Typically, product made to this specification is furnished as straight lengths. Sizes 1⁄2 in. [12 mm] and under may be furnished as wire in coils or on reels when requested.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
NOTE 2-Refer to Specifications B16/B16M and B140/B140M for copper-zinc-lead (leaded-brass) rod and bar for screw machine applications.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
