Copper and Copper Alloys (Brass, Bronze)
MatWeb has data sheets for 2200+ coppers and copper alloys such as brass and bronze, including unique data for different product forms and heat treatments. Once you navigate to specific data sheets, you will find the properties you need for the copper alloys of your choice - such as the tensile strength and melting point of SAE 40 Bronze or the density of Leaded Muntz Metal, UNS C36500.
The fastest and surest way to find the database entries for all copper alloys is to follow the link to our
Search By Material Type and then select "Copper Alloy" under the
nonferrous metals heading; this feature is reproduced below:

You can also choose "Copper Alloy" in conjunction with property values when you Search By Property. This will help you to naviagate through our large collection to find the exact copper, brass, or bronze alloys that meet your property specifications.
Copper alloys can be difficult to find by a text-based search due to ambiguous common names and misnomers. For example, the term "Silver-bearing tough pitch copper" is used for alloys with at least four different composition ranges with different UNS numbers. When choosing text for our Quick Search, please keep in mind that the MatWeb text-based search is sensitive to punctuation; it will treat Copper-tin differently than Copper tin. The UNS number is the most widely available search term but coppers can sometimes be found in MatWeb by entering ASTM, CDA, CEN, and ISO designations. The UNS Number is often created from the CDA number by adding a 'C' at the begionning and two zeroes at the end (ex: CDA 360 = UNS C36000).
No matter how you reach MatWeb's entries for specific copper, brass, or bronze entries, you will find complete physical property data. The MatWeb staff has collected extensive data to bring you values for properties such as density, hardness, ultimate tensile strength, electrical resisitivity or conductivity, elastic modulus, etc.
