Silicon Brass & Silicon Bronze Rod and Bar Stock Supplier
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, lead-free (Pb-free) brasses for a wide range of 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.
Wieland Chase has been a leading U.S. manufacturer and supplier of high quality, silicon brass rod and bars as well as silicon bronze rod and bar stock products for many years. Our foundry, located in Northwest Ohio, produces the highest volume of brass to serve customers throughout North America.
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 and moderately high corrosion resistance, plus very good 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 is a low lead brass alloy that is typically composed of 96-percent copper plus silicon and other alloys such as zinc, tin, iron, or manganese.
Wieland Chase silicon bronze offers benefits such as added strength, good machinability, forgeability, thread rolling capability, easy pourability, and superior corrosion resistant properties. Additionally, the self-lubricity of this alloy makes silicon bronze an excellent choice for bearings, bushings, and spacers.
