Silicon Brass Alloy

C878 is used in many typical applications:

  • Builders’ Hardware
  • Fasteners
  • Hardware
  • Industrial
  • Marine
  • Plumbing


The granular nature of C878 has multiple benefits. It has faster melting times than brick ingot, thanks to increased surface area and has very low dross. All these characteristics make C878 fantastic for more efficient and cost-effective production of many different products.

C878 is part of the EZ-MELT Granular Ingots product line that meets ASTM standard B30. This bronze ingot also is highly fluid and has high casting yields, ensuring maximum profitability when all procedures are followed correctly. With a liquidus point of just 1680 °F, choosing C878 Granular Ingot can ensure reduced melting times, saving energy, time, and increasing profitability compared to leaded and bismuth brass alloys.
