The smallest, but most versatile part of the ECO BRONZE family


EZ-MELT Granular Ingots are a lead-free bronze alloy that has a reduced surface size. This smaller surface size allows for faster heating times, which can help reduce energy consumption. One study showed EZ-MELT Granular Ingots can reduce melting times by 10% or more in comparison to other bronze alloys. This helps save time, energy, resources, and money.

EZ-MELT’s reduced melting times make it perfect for automation, which can increase efficiency and reduce labor costs. Studies show that using EZ-MELT Granular Ingots can result in a time savings of up to 30% in comparison to using traditional bronze ingot. Low pouring and melting temperatures and a short solidification range certify high-quality, lead-free bronze every time.





  • Ideal form for automation- Labor savings
  • Safety –granules eliminate pinch points compared to brick ingots
  • Reduces pinch points vs traditional ingot
  • Ideal form for charge automation
  • Low dross
  • No supplemental Phosphorous required


  • Reduces BTU consumption
  • Liquidus is only 1616 °F
  • Smaller size results in greater surface area in furnace – promotes faster melting: Studies have shown up to 30%-time savings vs traditional brick ingot
  • Reduced BTU energy consumption to melt: Studies have shown 10% or greater savings
  • Reduces CO2 through more efficient melting than brick ingots


  • High strength
  • High fluidity
  • Low gassing
  • No trapped moisture
  • Low dross when following recommended melting procedures
  • NSF/ANSI/CAN 372 compliant


EZ-MELT Granular Ingots are not only phenomenal for reducing melting times and costs but is also great for the environment. CO2 emissions during production are reduced, thanks to more efficient melting times. EZ-MELT Granular Ingots are also lead-free, but pours as well as, if not better than, leaded alloys. A university study noted EZ-MELT Granular Ingots as the leading lead-free brass alloy for environment friendliness, efficient manufacturing, and end of life recyclability.

The properties of EZ-MELT Granular Ingots ensures that the product will perform at a high level. Apart from being lead-free, the granular nature of the bronze ingot ensures that there will be no trapped moisture being kept in the product. When recommended melting procedures are followed, there is also very low dross.

EZ-MELT Granular Ingots are a high quality, lead-free alloy. It has high strength, high fluidity, and is low gassing. It is NSF/ANSI/CAN 372 compliant and also meets many ATSM standards, including ASTM B30, B505, B584, and B806. These standards, partnered with reduced pinch points in comparison to traditional ingot, ensure that EZ-MELT Granular Ingots will produce safe and high-quality products in a timely manner.
