How to Select a Brass Alloy
As a brass supplier, we can offer you nearly any alloy of brass you need. We find that the vast majority of customers, though, use alloy 260 or alloy 360. Our brass plate and sheet come in alloy 260, or as it is better known to our customers, yellow brass or cartridge brass (so called because it is used to make shell casings). The extrusions we carry in brass (square bar, rectangular bar, and round) are alloy 360, known as free machining brass. As the name implies, it has good machinability, but it is not suited for forming applications. You can find more infomation clicking on the little "Need Help Choosing?" buttons. If you need 330 brass, naval bronze, or some other exotic alloy, give us a call at 812.429.1634; we can usually get it for you.
