ALMAG: past, present and Futura
02 September 2022
We decided to participate at Futura EXPO 2022 to spread awareness of how metal companies, over the years, have become increasingly virtuous in relation to the responsible management of business activity and its impact on the environment and the surrounding population.
Being sustainable, for us, is a conscious choice that develops according to the principles of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations and the three strategic matrices:
  • E-Environment
  • S-Social
  • G-Governance
The goal that drives us is to create value for our people, for the environment in which we operate and for the community in which we are part.

ALMAG BECOMES "RESEARCH PARTNER" OF FOUNDATION IEO-MONZINO
01 January 2022
Almag has decided to join the "Partner for Research" Program of the IEO-MONZINO Foundation, a partnership initiative that is aimed at all companies that choose to support the clinical and scientific research of the European Institute of Oncology and the Monzino Cardiology Center, both IRCCS - Institutes of Hospitalization and Care of a Scientific Nature - recognized at Italian and international level for their excellence.

The "Partners for Research" project testifies to the growing value that the entrepreneurial fabric also recognizes to the medical-scientific research of our country, in the sharing of a transversal and structured business culture to involve both human capital and the community of stakeholders of the companies that join.

Choosing to join "Research Partners" means being alongside two internationally recognized Institutes of Excellence in the field of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer and cardiovascular diseases, encouraging the progress of clinical and experimental research of the IEO and Monzino, with the aim of identifying the best treatments for all patients and being able to win increasingly complex challenges.

ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) has established that those who produce, assemble, import or distribute articles in the EU or, in general, all actors in the supply chain who introduce articles into the European market (article suppliers), starting from 5th January 2021, they will be required to notify the SCIP database only if the same articles contain SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern) substances included in the "REACH Candidate List" in concentrations higher than 0.1% by weight. Lead (Pb) contained in our alloys is one of the substances for which the SCIP Notification is mandatory.

Dear Customer / Supplier,

Companies ALMAG and BERNA ERNESTO fully aware of the ongoing health emergency, inform the temporary stop of production for a week starting from tomorrow evening Friday 13/3/20.

Deliveries of bar and collection of scrap in week 12 (from 16th to 20th of March) are guaranteed, compatibly with the situation development.

The decision was taken also as an additional protection for co-workers and employees, despite the fact that both companies have rigorously implemented all the actions recommended by the anti-contagion safety protocols, being always fully operative with not one positive case registered

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we are confident that our initiative will be fully understood by you.

We are available for any clarifications you may need.
Kind regards

BRASS WITHOUT LEAD BRASS WITHOUT LEAD
BRASS WITHOUT LEAD
15 February 2019
The regulatory framework for the use of lead in industry is undergoing substantial changes.
• REACH has recently included the lead in the SVHC (Substance of Very High Concern) list.
• The European Union is about to publish the revision of the DWD (Drinking Water Directive) which will lead to a further reduction of lead content in the water intended for human consumption.
• The revision of the RoHS directive in 2021 could also lead to a significant reduction in the lead content in brass alloys.
Today the use of the usual alloys is absolutely allowed.
However, in order to anticipate possible market demands, ALMAG has already taken steps to create lead-free variants (<0.1%) of the alloys:
• CW509L
• CW510L
• CW511L
The same are available for both hot forging and mechanical processing.
The refinement of the alloy and particular arrangements in the composition allow however to maintain good parameters of workability and cutting.
The technical data sheets can be downloaded from the website www.almag.it.
For further details you can contact us at the usual email address.

REACH - NEW REVIEW REACH - NEW REVIEW
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 new SVHC declaration can be downloaded at:

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”.

LIST METAL MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR CONTACT WITH DRINKING WATER LIST METAL MATERIALS SUITABLE FOR CONTACT WITH DRINKING WATER
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.
