Wieland Forgeworks are made with ECO BRASS® and provide an excellent lead-free, corrosion-resistant product for your critical plumbing applications. Let us work with your team to develop a domestic solution for your engineered raw forgings or machined finished products including brass fittings.
Bringing forging capability to the US, using our network of machining facilities or your own equipment you can enjoy the security and efficiency of 100% US Made parts.
The Wieland Chase ECO BRASS® products comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act of 2011 where all lead was to be removed from drinking water distribution systems.
ECO BRASS® advantages:

- Not as prone to cracking during machining like other lead substitutes such as bismuth
- Strength is like stainless steel but with much better machinability
- Resistance to dezincification is as good as bronze
- Stress corrosion cracking resistance is as good as low zinc alloys
- Cost competitive as a foundry alloy compared to bismuth brasses and some traditional silicon brasses
