Brass Round Bar 485 has excellent corrosion resistance, good strength, good hardness, fair machinability, and excellent resistance to zincification. 485 is also known as naval brass because it is routinely used in marine applications. The addition of lead to this alloy makes 485 more easily machinable than 464, the other naval brass alloy. 485 is typically used in marine hardware, wearplates, bushings, fasteners, condenser tubes, and black powder cannons.
