ASTM-B140 › Standard Specification for Copper-Zinc-Lead (Red Brass or Hardware Bronze) Rod, Bar, and Shapes
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification establishes the requirements for copper-zinc-lead (leaded red brass or hardware bronze) rods, bars, and shapes of UNS Alloy Nos. C31400, C31600, and C32000 used for screw machine applications. Tempers available to this specification are O60 (soft anneal), H02 (half-hard), and H04 (hard). Materials for manufacture shall be cast billets, logs, or rods of such purity and soundness as to be suitable for processing by hot working, cold-working, straightening, and annealing to produce a uniform wrought structure in the finished product. Tempers available under this specification are O60 (soft anneal), H02 (half-hard), and H04 (hard). Products shall be tested and conform to dimensional (mass, diameter, length, straightness, and shape), mechanical (tensile and yield strength, and elongation), and chemical composition requirements.
1.1 This specification establishes the requirements for copper-zinc-lead (leaded red brass or hardware bronze) rod, bar, and shapes of UNS Copper Alloy Nos. C31400, C31600, and C32000 available for general and screw machine applications.
1.2 Units—Values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, SI units are shown in brackets. The values in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
1.3 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.
