Abstract

Copper Alloy No. C86400 is a free-machining, low-tensile (60,000 psi), cast manganese bronze; it is also classified as high-strength yellow brass. Although it is around the low-strength end of the manganese bronzes, its tensile strength is substantially greater than that of the corresponding copper-zinc (yellow brass) alloy. Typical uses are marine fittings, valve stems, lever arms and light-duty gears. This datasheet provides information on composition, physical properties, hardness, elasticity, tensile properties, and compressive strength as well as fracture toughness. It also includes information on corrosion resistance as well as casting, heat treating, machining, and joining. Filing Code: Cu-453. Producer or source: Copper alloy foundries. “Originally published February 1983, revised August 1985.”
