A phosphorous deoxidised non-arsenical copper that is 99.9% pure.
C106/CW024A is the preferred grade for non-electrical purposes such as fasteners, roofing sheet, plumbing tube and other general engineering and constructional applications. The alloy comes into its own where the manufacture of the component or plant involves welding or brazing.
This grade of copper is not susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement which can be a serious risk with non-deoxidised grades.
Used in architectural applications, C106 has asaethetic value and and can also be used for plating and polishing.

Not susceptible to hydrogen embrittlement
Deoxidation of C106/CW024A improves embrittlement resistance during welding.
Brazing and soldering are both excellent joining methods for C106/CW024A. Gas shielded arc welding is also excellent. Oxyacetylene welding and butt welding are good. Welding methods not recommended include:
Coated metal arc welding
Corrosion resistance is either good or excellent in most environments and atmospheres other than those containing ammonia ions.
Solution treatment or annealing can be done by rapid cooling after heating to 370-650°C.
This alloy has a machinability rating of 20 when Brass CZ121/CW614N is 100.
C106/CW024A has an excellent response to cold working.
With forging of brass rated as 100, the hot forgeability of C106/CW024A is rated at 65. Hot working temperatures should be between 760 and 870°C
