Advantages of DZR Brass Valves

Comments Off on Advantages of DZR Brass Valves

Dezincification-resistant (DZR) brass can help prevent corrosion from negatively affecting various components, including valves used in a number of applications. Although many applications use valves and other fittings made from normal brass alloys, certain impurities could cause a type of corrosion known as dezincification. In applications where dezincification is a risk, DZR brass valves provide […]
