For many years, bronze has been the material of choice for use in underwater marine applications such as thru-hull fittings and seacocks. It outperformed many other metals and alloys and has stood the test of time. Until now.
Modern vessels are being built fitted with an ever-increasing amount of
onboard electronics. This in turn has increased the likelihood of stray
electrical currents leaking out into the surrounding ocean via conductive
metallic fittings. When this takes place, an electrochemical reaction occurs in the metal leading to corrosion and ultimately failure of the part. In a marina scenario where berths are close to one another the risk increases, and even more so when any of the vessels connect to mains shore-power. Stray currents travel to and from one boat’s metallic fittings, through a conductor (the salt water), and into another vessel’s metallic fittings causing electrolysis to occur in both. These factors combined with the uncertainty of not knowing what you’re buying is impurity-free real bronze, as opposed to brass or DZR brass, make using metallic fittings hazardous and a thing of the past.
