ASTM B – 96 Standard Specification for Copper-Zinc-Lead Alloy (Leaded-Brass) Extruded Shapes

Primarily used for architectural hardware and trim. The hot forgeability rating of this alloy is unknown. This specification covers the requirements for extruded leaded-brass angles, channels, and other architectural shapes of solid cross section produced in Copper Alloy UNS Nos.

This alloy’s capacity for being hot formed is rated as “excellent”. Distributors will offer small n455 buys while mills will generally only sell large quantities, with delivery times anywhere from 10 to 50 weeks depending on size and form required This material is stocked primarily in Structurals by 18 distributors but is also available to a lesser extent in Bar Products, Shapes, Tubular Products, Wire Products, and Flat Rolled Products.

Modulus of Elasticity Tension. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. The capacity for cold working this alloy is rated as “poor”.


When copper is so determined, that difference value shall conform to the requirements specified. The material shall conform to the chemical composition specified.
