Lead free brass 

Lead Free Brass

Used widely in California for fittings that convey drinking water. Lead Free brass has other benefits such as de-zincification (corrosion) resistance and a material strength that is comparable to that of Stainless Steel.

Free Cutting Brass - CuZn39PB3

The most common specification machined by Currie & Warner equivalent to American Specification CDA360. Free cutting brass has excellent machineability and could be used instead of Mild Steel. Many designers are surprised to learn that in the half-hard condition free cutting brass properties are comparable to AISI 12L14 leaded steel.

DZR (De-Zincification Brass)

DZR is the choice of material for components that come in contact with water. DZR has excellent corrosion resistance and eliminates the need to plate components.

 

Nickel Silver

Also known as German Silver the material is usually required when parts require combination of strength and good corrosion resistance.

 

Gun Metal (Red Brass)

Known in the USA as Red Brass is used frequently for plumbing fittings and valves. Although Currie & Warner still offer items from Gun Metal we would advised alternatives such as Lead Free Brass which is more cost effective to machine.

 

Other Specifications

Below are a list of other specifications previously supplied by Currie & Warner. However if components require a particular brass specification Currie & Warner are more than happy to supply.
