Naval Brass (C46400) is a high strength and corrosion resistant alloy. It is widely used in marine construction where a strong, corrosive resistant, and hard material is required. The addition of tin gives Naval Brass an inherent resistance to dezincification, thereby inhibiting the impingement by seawater at higher than normal temperatures.

Naval Brass is typically used in the manufacture of bolts, nuts, rivets, and turnbuckles for the marine and aircraft industry. Naval Brass can also be found in the various hardware, electrical, marine, and ordnance applications.
