Federalloy® alloys are a series of lead-free copper alloys invented by A.R. Singh, chief metallurgist and vice president at the Federal Metals Company, Bedford, Ohio. The Federal Metal Company replaces lead with bismuth and offers an alloy with superior pressure tightness and comparable machinability characteristics to leaded brass and bronze alloys. The solution is not only effective but so unique that The Federal Metal Company has received several U.S. patents and has applied for others in many countries around the world.

Since 1993, Concast has produced millions of pounds of Federalloy® and has had great commercial success doing so. Currently, Concast is the only foundry licensed to produce the Federalloy® group of alloys.

Benefits of Federalloy®

  • Good machinability
  • The unique Federalloy® technology enables production engineers to tailor any Federalloy alloy to their own requirements
  • Good polishing and plating characteristics
  • Better castability at lower temperatures, resulting in lower costs to end users
  • Assures that elongation, a key benchmark for ductility, approximates its leaded alloy counterparts
  • “No burn-in” feature enables Federalloy® castings to have more definition which results in crisper markings and more legible identification numbers
  • Superior microstructural characteristics
  • Improved finish requires less shot blast, reducing cleaning costs and shortening cycle times
Applications using Federalloy®
  • Faucets
  • Pump components
  • Pipe fittings
  • Plumbing goods
  • Water pump impellers
  • Housings
  • Small gears
