Precision copper and copper base alloys play a major roll in electronic and automotive connectors, fasteners, closures, jewelry, coinage, medallions, musical instruments, lock hardware, plumbing goods, and decorative products. Scott Brass is pleased to provide a broad selection of brass, copper, and bronze alloys to meet your specifications.
Alloy 102 (Oxygen Free Copper) offers additional advantages over Alloy 110 to the user. The purity and absence of deoxidizers combine electrical conductivity and freedom from hydrogen embrittlement necessary for super critical applications in the electronic, electrical, and communications industries.
Alloy 110 (Electrolytic Tough Pitch Copper) is used primarily in electrical components because of its current-carrying capacity. It has excellent resistance to weather and is widely used for outside applications. Alloy 110 is also used for mechanical applications such as gaskets, cable wrap, eyelets, automotive terminals, and electronic connector components.
Alloy 122 (Phosphorous Deoxidized Copper) has better ductility
than Alloy 110 and is used for deep drawing that involves severe cold
work or may require heating, brazing, or welding, which would tend to
embrittle tough pitch copper.
Alloy 210 (Gilding) and Alloy 220 (Commercial Bronze) are ideal for decorative products, jewelry, medals, medallions, hardware, thermostats, and lighting fixtures, as well as for cable wrap shielding and marine hardware.
Alloy 230 (Red Brass) and Alloy 226 (Jewelry Bronze) are used for decorative and industrial products. They are widely used for costume jewelry (Gold Tone), cosmetic cases, fountain pens, bellows, automotive terminals, and connectors.
Alloy 260 (Cartridge Brass) is one of the most versatile alloys. Its outstanding strength and ductility make it useful for a wide range of automotive terminal connectors, industrial hardware, ammunition, decorative items, instruments, and holloware.
Alloys 268 & 272 (Yellow Brass) is sometimes used as a cheaper alternative to Alloy 260. Typical end uses include automotive radiator cores, eyelets, fasteners, grommets, and finish hardware articles.
Alloy 510 (Grade A Phosphor Bronze) has tin with phosphor added in small quantities as a deoxidizer. This alloy has remarkable tensile strength, ductility, fatigue and stress relaxation properties, and is resistant to corrosion. Applications include springs and electronic connectors.
Alloy 519 (Phosphor Bronze 4%) has excellent formability along with good strength, high endurance limit, electrical conductivity and resistance to stress relaxation. These properties make it suitable for electrical applications such as connectors and flexed contact blades.
