Other semi-finished products
Our range of products
Our other semi-finished products at a glance.
Ingots produced by continuous casting are superior to classical ingots. This can be seen at many steps of further processing.
We can now also offer these as standard for aluminium bronzes.
Aluminium bronze properties
Solidification of the ingots in the cooler without contact with oxygen prevents oxide formation and gas inclusions in the ingots. This significantly reduces the amount of dross in further processing.
The purer the base material used in the casting process, the lower the reject rate due to foreign bodies or oxide inclusions.
Thin casting skin
Thinner casting skins are formed during further processing into semi-finished products or components. Casting close to final dimensions and reduced machining oversizes are possible. This reduces machining times and saves production costs.
Uniform material properties
Continuously cast ingots minimize foreign inclusions and inhomogeneities in the component. The mechanical properties are more uniform.
Our continuous cast ingots save costs where the end products take shape - in your production!
Optimized processing of scrap into high-quality ingot materials is ensured by well-qualified employees and state-of-the-art system technology, from ball mills and drum melting furnaces to continuous cast systems.

High mechanical strength
Its grain refiner ensures an extremely fine grain size, facilitating even distribution of force throughout the entire structure. The result: strength and hardness otherwise only known in steel, even with thin, weight-reducing wall thicknesses.
Thanks to its fine-grained structure, Ecocast is ideal for filigree components.
In every situation where you were previously dependent on red brass for filigree shapes, the high amount of waste of this conventional material is eliminated with Ecocast.
Ecocast and its special chemical composition also makes reworking cast parts through machining, grinding, polishing, or coating safe, precise, and cost-effective.
Top-rate corrosion resistance
The fine-grained structure through and through also means minimal dezincification on the surface due to touching, oxidation, or cleaning.
The future is lead-free
Secure your market lead: with Ecocast you can design and equip your products for the future, too. After all, many countries and various customers are already implementing strict regulations concerning the use of lead-free materials.
Ecocast can be cast both in ingot molds and in sand. The material is standardized under CC768S in EN 1982.
Ecocast: The New Material for Sanitary Installations
Ecocast is the perfect material for sanitary installations, not just for meeting drinking water regulations in the future, but also mainly for meeting current cost-efficiency requirements. Thanks to its high mechanical strength, Ecocast achieves wall thicknesses that help significantly reduce weight and save on materials and costs without compromising on stability. Moreover, Ecocast can handle forces (or moments) that until now have only been reserved for steel. The fine-grained structure and lack of lead produce surfaces that are aesthetically impeccable when Ecocast parts are coated.
Functional Properties, Long-Lasting Look
The extremely corrosion-resistant brass material Ecocast has a premium golden surface that is especially long -lasting, making it suitable even for frequently used objects and room fixtures made from cast parts. Ecocast also has high color stability and resistance to degradation caused by contact, air humidity, or intensive cleaning, which increases hygiene safety in hospitals, clinics, and nursing care institutions. - The innovative cast material from Wieland retains its functional properties even with heavy day-to-day use.
