*There are stricter specifications in place at Wieland for the use in drinking water components for a number of elements compared to the respective product standards.
**The material is not standardised.
***Dezincification test according to ISO 6509 and the relevant product standards.
****From an economic point of view, a separate scrap cycle makes sense.
