C26000 Cartridge Brass

Atlas carries C26000 Cartridge Brass in Sheet / Plate and Tubing. We carry a very large range of sizes and will cut the material to length. Of all the brasses, C26000 is the most ductile and is used in greater quantity than any other copper-zinc alloy.

C26000 Cartridge Bronze has excellent to good corrosion resistance in most environments, but is not suitable for use with certain materials, such as acetic acid, moist ammonia or ammonia compounds, hydrochloric acid and nitric acid.
