C28000 Muntz Metal

ASTM B36, ASME B36, DIN 2.0360, BS 2875 CZ109, EN CW509L

Farmer’s Copper Ltd. maintains an inventory of C28000 Muntz in sheet and plate.

C280 sometimes referred to as Muntz Metal, nominally contains 60% copper, and 40% zinc. The importance of this alloy is its color, which is essentially that of architectural bronze. Alloy 280 metallographic structure is made of a large portion of beta grains, and so it is stronger, harder, and more rigid than brasses of lesser zinc content. C28000 work hardens rapidly, and so is less adapted to cold work. However it may be bent or formed readily enough.
