When you need a raw material solution for a high-quality surface condition, C360 brass rod is your answer as it can be polished to a high finish.

Its lead content gives C360 brass rod a 100% machinability rating, the highest of any brass alloy or other alloy systems. It excels in heavy machining applications such as drilling, turning, milling, and boring. With its quality and consistency, C360 brass rod allows customers to produce more components per machine hour, maintain closer tolerances, and reduce machining downtime because of longer tool life. In addition, Wieland Chase’s standard half-hard temper C360 can be thread-rolled, soldered, brazed, polished, and plated.  As with other brass alloys, the machining chips can be easily recycled.
