(C26000, 70/30)

Brass is a copper based alloy with zinc being the essential secondary ingredient.  The addition of zinc to copper creates a lower cost alloy with superior cold working strength to copper but at the expense of reduced conductivity.  C26000 has excellent ductility and strength and is the most widely used of the brasses.  It has a distinctive bright yellow colour and is ideal for shims, gaskets, solder mask for circuit boards, washers and can be drawn or spun.

Brass Shim stock is cold rolled to a half hard temper of 110-130 VPN.  Supplied in a range of sizes from .050mm (.002″) –  .508mm (.020″) and is sold in a variety of ways from convenient packets to continuous metres to suit your requirements.
