C27450 – Low Lead Brass Rod Products

In response to requirements for lead-free brass for the plumbing industry. This alloy can be substituted for Alloy 377 without compromising the integrity of the finished part. Recent testing has determined that lead-free brass is stronger than the leaded 377 alloy, indicating that a product can be made using less material while delivering similar strength and corrosion resistance – a cost-saving benefit.
