Good for Foundries. Good for the Environment.
Today's lead-free alloys make it possible.

  • Federalloy castings pass leachate standards for copper, lead and bismuth as defined by current NSF Regulations, Standard 61, Sections 8 and 9.

  • Reduced paperwork requirements for OSHA and EPA lead programs, which may be eventually eliminated for U.S. foundries.

  • Low airborne lead levels over eight hour periods are less than 10 micrograms per cubic meter of air.

  • Once air levels fall below 30 micrograms per cubic meter of air, blood lead programs can be discontinued.

  • No respirators are required of employees working in environments below 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air with a time weighted average of eight hours.

  • When melting Federalloy, the toxicity in molding sand from lead is less than one part per million. (EPA limit is 5 parts per million.) That means sand is no longer classified as hazardous due to lead and you can save money on sand disposal.
