Wieland Chase is your best supplier for quality silicon brass and silicon bronze rod and round bar stock made in the U.S. when you need lead-free solutions.

Silicon brass alloys offer high purity, high strength, and lead-free (Pb-free) brasses for various applications. Due to their moderately high corrosion resistance, silicon, brass, and bronze rod are often specified for products used in lead-free applications, such as drinking water fixtures and components, as well as in antimicrobial applications.

Silicon Brass

Silicon brass (Si-brass) materials are designated to contain less than 20 percent zinc and less than 6 percent silicon. Silicon brasses are specified because of their high strength, moderately high corrosion resistance, and excellent aqueous and atmospheric corrosion resistance.

Wieland Chase silicon brass is an excellent choice for applications such as bearings, gears, valves, pump components, electrical components, automotive components, marine hardware, and chemical process equipment.

Silicon Bronze

Silicon bronze is a low-lead brass alloy typically composed of 96 percent copper plus silicon and other alloys such as zinc, tin, iron, or manganese.

Wieland Chase silicon bronze offers added strength, good machinability, forgeability, thread rolling capability, easy pourability, and superior corrosion resistance properties. Additionally, the self-lubricity of silicon makes silicon bronze an excellent choice for bearings, bushings, spacers, and load-bearing applications.
