REACH - NEW REVIEW
03 October 2018
REACH - Regulation (EC) 1907/2006

With a review dated 27th of June 2018, ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) has included metallic lead (Pb) in the list of the highly concerned substances (SVHC) according REACH (Regulation 1907/2006) due to its harmonized hazard classification basis as "Toxic for reproduction" (category 1A).

The semi-finished products produced by Almag Spa are classified as "Articles" under the Reach Regulation Article 3 (3) and are not subject to safety data sheet arrangement according to article 31 same regulation. However ALMAG SpA has arranged a "product form" that includes standard obligations and enough information to guarantee product safety in standard and expectable conditions of use.

Regarding the article life cycle, if disposal of production offcut is made as "WASTE", it is highly recommended to ensure that they are correctly classified according to current legislation. In case of placing on the market as "BY-PRODUCTS" it is recommended to pay attention to national legislation obligations and current Reach and CLP regulations.

THE FREE MACHINING ALLOY 39PB3-HS
09 September 2017
The free machining alloy CW614N, “39Pb3” for ALMAG, has been optimized in chemical composition in order to improve the mechanical performance and to favor the removal of chips. This will help to reduce production times and to guarantee longer life to the automatic machines. To improve production the ALMAG alloy CW614N evolves into “39Pb3 HS”. Please have a look to the technical data sheet in the PRODUCTS section for further informations.

LIST METAL MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR CONTACT WITH DRINKING WATER
01 February 2016
On 10 April 2015 the German Federal Environmental Agency has formalized the list of metallic materials suitable for contact with drinking water. This list, also called LU List or 4MS Common Composition List, presents a series of paragraphs which are characterized by the main elements constituting the alloy. In paragraph 2.3, for example, are the alloys containing: copper, zinc and lead and then in group B and C: CW617N and CW612N; Group C: CW614N and CW603N.

In the same paragraph listed chemical compositions which in some cases differ with respect to the composition defined in European standards of product. The official publication of the list starts the transitional period of two years and therefore with effect from 10 April 2017 may be used for drinking water only the alloys indicated in the list. The alloy CW602N, for example, must therefore be replaced by 2017 with one of the alloys shown in the list.

The list is formalizing the version of 4 September 2013 while it is already available in the version of 20 January 2015 that waits to be approved the notification of the European Commission.

ALLOYS SUITABLE FOR CONTACT WITH DRINKING WATER AS LISTED 4MS
19 January 2016
Waiting for the revision of the European standards for copper alloys, Almag Spa has decided to introduce from January 2016 an amendment to the name for the alloys included in '' Positive list of metallic materials hygienically suitable for contact with drinking water (UBA List or 4MS Positive List). For these alloys, in fact, the new rules include the introduction of initials DW (Drinking water) to be added to the number of the alloy designation. For the CW617N alloy used in contact with drinking water, the designation will become CW617N-DW. That statement, to be communicated when the enquiry will be issued, will lead to a request for an alloy with chemical composition in accordance with restrictions included in the 4MS list.
