C353 High Leaded Brass

C353 High leaded brass is more free machining and less formable than C345 and has a slightly lower copper content. C353 has poor cold workability and only fair hot workability and is resistant to dezincification and therefore better in acid water conditions. Excellent wear resistance and has been a popular yellow brass choice for many years.
