Maximum productivity and tool life on high speed repetition work.
Full alloy description:
A.W. Fraser Alloy 385 is a high speed turning and screwing brass conforming to the requirements of A. S. 1567 alloy 385.
385 has been developed for use where maximum output and longest tool life are essential on high speed automatics.
The composition of A.W. Fraser alloy 385 is strictly controlled as are the extrusion and finishing operations to achieve a constant standard of quality, properties and structure. All extrusions are manufactured from continuous cast billet stock ensuring uniform dispersion of lead particles and freedom from porosity.
Alloy 385 is susceptible to dezincification under certain conditions and is classified a category III alloy.
Machinability Rating: 100
SAE Grade: 72*/J461*/J463*
