Muntz Metal

Muntz metal is also called Yellow Metal. It is an alloy brass consisting of 60 percent copper and 40 percent zinc, named after the English businessman George F. Muntz, who patented it in 1832. Muntz metal must be worked hot. It is used to make machine parts that require resistance to corrosion.
