General Description Chlorinated potable water supplies (town water) can cause dezincification of brasses containing more than 15% zinc. The careful formulation of this alloy combined with heat treatment produces a dezincification resistant brass suitable for high speed machining. It is suitable for use in hot, soft potable waters, even if they are acidic.

Typical applications. Plumbers hardware, valve spindles, fittings.

Corrosion Resistance

C35330 has excellent corrosion resistance in potable water.

C35330 should not be used in contact with ammonia, ammonia compounds or amines, as it may suffer stress corrosion cracking. Beware of corrosion inhibitors in piping systems which also contain carbon steels. The inhibitor should be checked for compatibility with C35330.

Brass should not be used with acetic acid, acetylene, brines, calcium chloride, moist chlorine, chromic acid, hydrochloric acid, mercury or its compounds, nitric acid and sodium hypochlorite.
