The 360 brass round rod with H02 temper is extruded and 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. The round rod has been extruded, a process of compressing metal and pushing it through a die to create the shape.
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.

The rod comes rough-cut at both ends. I simply touched it up with a Dremmel tool and it's ready to go. The other benefit of a brass rod is that it can be used to tap parts without marking them, if done carefully. This is a good all-purpose tool helper to keep around.
This brass rod arrived quickly, packed in a very sturdy shipping tube. The rod is straight with correct diameter free of burrs aand irregularities. If I have a future need for brass rod, I will definitely buy this again; it is a good value for the money and convenient to purchase.
This rod machines beautifully and produces a very nice finish. I find it very useful to have around the shop for a variety of projects.
