464 brass is a copper and zinc alloy known as naval brass. Prestige Metal Supplies stocks naval brass rods which are widely used in underwater applications. This is due to the highly corrosive-resistant nature of 464 brass which makes it excellent in marine environments or other harsh environments.
Also known as C46400, the composition of naval brass rods are usually approximately 60% copper, 39.2% zinc, and 0.8% tin. Naval brass rods are highly durable and resistant to saltwater corrosion making them ideal for use in marine construction.
