    C10800...oxygen-free, low phosphorus
    C12200DHP phosphorized, high residual phosphorus
    C19400...copper-iron alloy brass
    C44300...arsenical admiralty
    C44400...antimonial admiralty
    C44500...phosphorized admiralty
    C68700...arsenical aluminum brass
    C70400...95-5 copper-nickel
    C70600...90-10 copper-nickel
    C70620...90-10 copper-nickel (Modified for Welding)
    C71000...80-20 copper-nickel
    C71500...70-30 copper-nickel
    C71520...70-30 copper-nickel (Modified for Welding)

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
