108/0: Copper and Copper Alloys-Innovative Rod and Bar Applications

Describes major applications and specifications for copper rod and bar, with emphasis on machining properties and how they compare with competitive steel and aluminum. Reprint, ASTM Standardization News, March 1990.
(6 pgs.) 1 free (add'l $1.00 ea)
A7005: Copper Rod Alloys for Machined Products

An alloy selection guide for copper and copper alloy rod, bar and shapes used for machined parts. The handbook is organized to help the designer, engineer or purchasing manager specify the proper alloy for the intended application. Presents data on all copper rod metals but emphasis is on free-cutting brass, including part cost comparisons, brass vs. steel, which demonstrate how material cost, machining cost, design and scrap value influence the total cost of machined parts.
