[TN26-1] The Brasses – Nickel Brass and Nickel Silver – Technical Data (Archive)

Publication date: 1968-72

>> See download links above each table


These archived data sheets, prepared by the International Copper Development Council (CIDEC), were originally published in a series covering all the main coppers and copper alloys during the period 1968-72.

They contain an invaluable summary of data relating to the physical and mechanical properties of the materials at low, ambient and elevated temperatures which is not available elsewhere.

Tensile, hardness, impact, creep and fatigue data have been abstracted from the relevant original literature. For the sake of accuracy, it is presented in bold type in the units in which it was originally published, together with lighter type equivalents in corresponding units.
