The E-Shield represents the ECO BRASS® and ECO BRONZE® lines of silicon-based copper alloys.
The E-Shield identity was developed to distinguish these lines and to represent strength, safety, environmentally sustainable and compliance where the highest purity products in the USA are demanded.
High performance Lead-Free* Silicon Brass Rod, Dezincification and stress corrosion cracking resistant.
Tough, Potable water castings, Dezincification resistant Wear-Resistant, Lead-Free* Bearing and Bushing Solution
Similar performance as Lead-Free* ECO BRASS, with less copper. Machinable and forgeable. Improved DZR and SCC resistance vs. C27450.

Lead Leachate Performance
CDA sponsored project for independent laboratory measurement of lead leachate
NSF 61 leachate test for all ECO BRASS® and ECO BRONZE® products:
- F1807 Fittings tested for NSF 61 Compliance resulted in lead leachate below the detection limit of 0.5 ppb.
- The ECO BRASS and ECO BRONZE family has a Day 3 Q value of 0.25 ppb.
