Introduction of C83600

C83600 Leaded Red Brass (85-5-5-5 Brass) is popular copper with high aqueous and atmospheric corrosion resistance property.

C83600 is Brass Alloy UNS number in ASTM A145 and ASMT B584 and ASTM B505 and ASTM B62 for casting purpose.

Manufacture Process for C83600

  • Sand Casting
  • Centrifugal Casting
  • Permanent Mold Casting
  • Investment Casting

Casting method is very important to get the different strength. Sand casting can produce any products but its property is little low. Centrifugal casting can get stably density and have the best strength property

Our Services

  1. Sand Casting

    Casting Quality focus on Metal Parts industry, we provide professional service in Metal Casting field.

    Sand Casting is a popular metal form method, are suitable for all materiel, such as grey iron, ductile iron, malleable iron, carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum and bronze.

  2. Investment Casting

    also named as precision lost wax casting, mainly suitalbe for carbon steel and stainless steel parts. We also provide grey iron and ductile iron and aluminum and bronze parts by investment casting. It can achieve the best appearance with good tolerance

  3. Shell Casting

    Shell casting method is a good option to replace investment casting and sand casting. the quality is better than sand casting parts, suitable for bulk production.

  4. CNC Machining

    CNC Milling, CNC turning with 5 xix CNC center, we provide precision machining for all castings based on customers design drawings.

  5. CAD Design

    Mechanical Design service based on customers requirement, our software is Solidworks and AutoCAD.

  6. Tools/Mold Design

    Mould design and production will be served for metal casting ad plastic injection industry.  Based on our more than 10 years experience, we supply professional molds for our customers in Europe and North American.

Standard of C83600 Castings

ASTM B30 Standard Specification for Coper Alloys in Ingot Form
ASTM B145-70 Standard Specification for Leaded Red Brass and Leaded Semi-Red Brass Sand Castings (Withdrawn 1972) (Replace by ASTM B584)

ASTM B584 – 14 Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Sand Castings for General Applications

ASTM B62 – 17 Standard Specification for Composition Bronze or Ounce Metal Castings

ASTM B505 / B505M – 18 Standard Specification for Copper Alloy Continuous Castings

ASTM B62 only defines one brass casting of C83600, mainly used for component castings of valves, flanges and fittings. But ASTM B505 and B584 defined many brass grades.
