C69850 – ECO FORGE® Rod and Bar Supplier


Wieland Chase is a brass supplier of C69300 brass profiles available in hexagon, round, and other shaped brass rods and brass bars. ECO FORGE® C69300 is a high-performance, highly forgeable, low copper, lead free*, silicon brass alloy. It is a great replacement for leaded fittings. It is an excellent solution for water supply and plumbing applications because of its antimicrobial properties, dezincification corrosion resistance (DZR/CR), and stress corrosion cracking (SCC) resistant properties. It is highly forgeable to forge brass fittings and parts.


Application: Forging
ASTM: B371
Lengths: 10 to 16 feet
Bundle Weights: 1,000 – 4,000 lbs.

Why Forge with ECO FORGE® Alloy?

Wieland Chase offers forging as the superior solution for engineered brass parts solutions. Based on the science, forging is our preferred method of producing ECO BRASS® and other brass parts that our customers expect to provide long lasting value through extended service and enhanced performance.

  • Higher Strength: Forged parts significantly meet or exceed strength requirements
  • Tighter Great Structure: Forging compacts the metal using a crushing force, which means no casting-induced porosity or cracks
  • Reduced Internal Stress: The high heat of the forging process anneals the part, making it less prone to stress-related corrosion failure
  • Higher Dimensional Control: Production tooling stability delivers consistent dimensions for machining, resulting in fewer rejects of final parts
  • Highly Repeatable Parts Production: Manufacturing throughput efficiencies are enhanced while the highest quality standards are maintained
  • Lower Tooling Costs for Fabrication: Parts producers realize economies of scale
