Leaded Red Brasses


C83600/SAE 40 - Typical Uses


Characteristics:
Reasonable strength; excellent thermal conductivity; sound material structure; reasonable corrosion resistance to seawater and brine; good machining and casting properties.

Uses:
Light loads and low to medium speeds; primarily for bearing shells and backing for babbitt-lined bearings; cornpicker snapping roll bushings, deep-well pump line-shaft bearings; automotive transmission thrust washers; low pressure valve bearings; manifold bushings for earth-moving machinery; pump sleeves; propeller bushings, Spring bushings for farm and automotive equipment' ornamental fixtures.
