Each piece in this pack is 4" x 4", and comes with the following thicknesses: 26 ga. (0.016"), 22 ga. (0.025"), 18 ga. (0.04"), 14 ga. (0.063")

Brass Sample Pack Sheet 260 offers an inexpensive way to make sure you get the correct material for your project. 260 is strong, corrosion resistant, easily machined, and is also the most ductile of the yellow brasses. It can be easily polished though it shouldn't be brazed due to the high zinc content. 260 is typically used in architecture, electrical parts, fasters, radiator components, decorative hardware, and ammunition casings.
