Table 2 summarizes the main properties and uses for brass rod alloys.
Main Properties of Brass Rod Alloys
Category Halcor Alloy No Machinability Index Characteristics and Uses
1 583 100 Very good machinability. Suitable for limited hot stamping, especially when further machining will follow. The basic alloy for hollow bar production.
2 592/582/5920 80 Good machinability. Very good hot stamping and forging characteristics
3 603 60 Reduced machinablility. Good performance in hot stamping and forging. Suitable for limited cold forming (turning, riveting, bending).
4 600K 60 High corrosion resistance.Fair degree of machinability. Suitable for hot stamping and forging.
