This type of brass contains a mixture of 68% copper, 30% zinc, and 2% lead. The addition of lead makes the brass softer and easier to engrave and shear. This combination makes the color of the material more yellow than standard 85/15 engraving brass. Generally used when deep routing and color filling is required, leaded brass will produce beautiful black detail when engraved and oxidized.

Recommended sublimation settings: Temperature ~ 380° F Time ~ 35 seconds Medium pressure
