3 Benefits of Low-Lead Brass Threaded Inserts


type-b-low-lead-brassLead-free compliance is becoming a crucial part of legislation around the country, with laws passed in California and Vermont to enforce lead-free regulations. With the push toward lead-free, we thought we’d share the benefits of low-lead brass and the purpose for using low-lead inserts for specific applications.


Top 3 Uses for Low-Lead Brass Inserts

1. Environmental Protection

Yardley Inserts low-lead inserts offer an environmentally friendly advantage while still maintaining the quality you expect from other inserts. Our specially formulated lead-free brass alloy only slightly adjusts the lead content and keeps the other properties you expect from brass the same.


2. Use in Medical Applications

According to the New York-based Copper Development Association, independent laboratory testing shows “when cleaned regularly, antimicrobial copper products kill greater than 99.9 percent of MRSA, VRE, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterobacter aerogenes, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and E.coli within two hours of exposure.”  Minimizing any potential RF interference and spread of disease, non-magnetic, low-lead inserts are ideal for sensitive electronic applications such as medical instruments, robotic assemblies, and laboratory test equipment.


3. Use in Robotic Assemblies and Laboratory Test Equipment

Save your water and product from contamination. Reduce the lead content in faucets, fittings, and valves with low-lead brass products. Non-magnetic, low-lead inserts provide a good solution for robotic assemblies and laboratory test equipment.
