Copper-Zinc-Tin (Naval Brass) Alloys

With the addition of small amounts of tin, leaded brass becomes an alloy commonly known as naval brass. Although leaded brass is already corrosion resistant, the addition of up to 1% tin makes it even more resistant making it ideal for use in seawater environments (hence the name) as well as other corrosive environments. It's a strong metal alloy with excellent formability properties. Naval brass is frequently the alloy of choice for marine hardware, propeller shafts and turn buckles, valve stems, heat exchangers, condenser plates, etc.
