BS EN 12168:2016

Copper and copper alloys. Hollow rod for free machining purposes

Status : Current   Published : July 2016



This European Standard specifies the composition, property requirements and dimensional tolerances for copper alloy hollow rod, finally produced by drawing or extruding, specifically intended for free machining purposes.


Hollow products having an outside diameter greater than 80 mm and/or a wall thickness less than 2 mm are specified in EN 12449.

The sampling procedures, the methods of test for verification of conformity to the requirements of this European Standard, are also specified.
