Low melt temp, high fluidity, low drop, high strength, dezincification resistant, stress corrosion cracking resistant

In 2006, California started a movement to remove lead from all faucets and plumbing fittings, that would overturn the entire copper and brass industry.  Wieland Chase licensed the right to offer the eco-friendly, lead-free* brass rod C69300 (Green Dot® ECO BRASS® Rod) and C87850 ingots for foundries in North America from Mitsubishi Shindoh Company Ltd.  Since that time, the United States’ Federal Government signed S3874 the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, which took effect January 1, 2014.
