Drawn and Stress Relieved (HR50) C61900 Bronze

HR50 C61900 bronze is C61900 bronze in the HR50 (drawn and stress relieved) condition. It has the highest strength and lowest ductility compared to the other variants of C61900 bronze. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare HR50 C61900 bronze to: wrought bronzes (top), all copper alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
