Feb. 22, 2024
What’s the deal with C87850 lead-free brass and why should companies make the switch? Learn more about the added performance, environmental and supply chain benefits of C87850 lead-free brass.

The AWWA C800 standard for Underground Service Line Valves and Fittings has been revised to include three lead-free, silicon-based brass options, providing flexibility and competition. Each brass option has strengths and weaknesses, allowing manufacturers to tailor solutions. A Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) reveals the environmental and human health advantages of silicon-based brass, particularly C87850, over bismuth-based brass. 

Read this whitepaper to learn more about the environmental and supply chain benefits as well as other advantages of C87850 lead-free brass.
