The 360 brass rectangular bar with H02 temper is unpolished, meets American Society for Testing and Materials International ASTM B16 specifications, and has a standard tolerance. The 360 brass alloy, also known as free-machining brass, provides corrosion resistance and better machinability than 353 brass due to a higher lead content. The material has an H02 temper, meaning it has been cold worked to a 1/2 hard temper.
Copper, brass, and bronze are known as red metals because they contain copper, which has a reddish color. Copper, a term that applies to alloys containing at least 99.3% copper, offers very high thermal and electrical conductivity and provides corrosion resistance, formability, and machinability. Brass is an alloy of copper and varying levels of zinc, sometimes with additional elements. It provides greater strength and better machinability than copper or bronze. Bronze is commonly an alloy of copper and tin, but sometimes it is copper alloyed with other elements such as aluminum, phosphorus, manganese, or silicon. Tin gives bronze more corrosion resistance than brass and greater strength than copper. Copper and its alloys have temper designations, meaning the material has undergone a process to achieve certain properties of strength and hardness.
Tensile strength, used to indicate the material's overall strength, is the peak stress it can withstand before it breaks. Corrosion resistance describes the material's ability to prevent deterioration caused by atmosphere, moisture, or other medium. Wear resistance indicates the ability to prevent surface damage caused by contact with other surfaces. Hardness (commonly measured as indentation hardness) describes its resistance to permanent surface deformation. Formability indicates how easily the material can be permanently shaped. Machinability describes how easily it can be cut, shaped, finished, or otherwise machined, while weldability characterizes the ability to be welded.

I wish Amazon and Amazon Supply would go through their inventory and put the old gnarly stuff in a separate part of the website so we would know if it is quality stock or not.
I like working with brass because it machines beautifully and when polished gives your work a real stand-out look. It's stronger than aluminum (for a given size) but you can still cut it with non-ferrous metal cutting blades in a bandsaw or a miter saw.
Brass is fairly pricy as a metal. Always check the various lengths available from Amazon - sometimes longer lengths are significantly cheaper per foot even with the shipping.
On the whole I am pleased with this brass bar and glad to be able to order it through Amazon.
By the way, when ordering metals through Amazon check the prices for various lengths of the same stock - often a longer piece is considerably cheaper per foot than a shorter piece. And if it is listed through Amazon prime the shipping is the same - already included.
I haven't used the Bronze bar stock as of yet (the reason I can't mark 5 stars) but it looks good. I do have full confidence that it is as specified, however.

Amazon sent the wrong size twice. It appears to have been a mis-labeling on the item description. I contacted them about this error and they made it right. Read morePublished 18 months ago by T. Jones
