Our most important nutrient is drinking water – a source of life – and therefore the basis for our health. Therefore, materials which are in contact with drinking water have to meet increasingly stringent requirements worldwide.
We have complemented our material portfolio by brasses with a lead content of max. 0.2 % meeting the requirements of U.S. legislation. These alloys are grouped together under the ECOMERICA brand:
In the USA, the weighted average lead content in pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey or dispense drinking water is limited to 0.25 %.
A distinction is made between three low-lead alloys for pipes, fittings and fixtures used to convey or dispense drinking water that meet the requirements of U.S. legislation.
ECOMERICA saves energy and is good for the environment.
