Lead-free or Eco brass copper alloys have a lead content of less than 0.1% and therefore meet all hygiene requirements worldwide.
Legislative pressure to reduce or remove the lead content from Brasses, particularly in water fittings (and especially from drinking water fittings and systems) has produced an increased demand for these low, or lead-free products. Demand for these products seems certain to gain momentum, especially for the USA and European markets. The special brass is characterised by a combination of excellent processing properties and high corrosion resistance. Compared to conventional forms of brass it exhibits a much higher strength.
At Currie & Warner, we can manufacture small volume production runs on our CNC machines but we have also developed tooling techniques to mass-produce turned parts on our multi-spindle machines.
