Green Dot® Ingot Products

ALLOYS:

In 2006, California started a movement to remove lead from all faucets and plumbing fittings, that would overturn the entire copper and brass industry.  Chase Brass 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.
