What value is brass T-bar?
Brass T-Bar c385/architectural bronze is commonly used for ornamental and decorative purposes such as trim, thresholds, hinges, and hardware. Also, T-bar is frequently used in structural applications as the shape of the Brass T-Bar c385 makes it great for projects that require load bearing. Specifically, the top portion of the T (flange) resists compressive stresses, where the bottom (web) resists shear stresses and prevents the flange from bending or buckling.
The c385 is mechanically similar to the c360 brass (free machining brass), with the main difference being that the c360 has a slightly higher lead content in order to make it marginally more machinable. The c360′s machinability rating is 100, whereas the c385 is 90.
