what makes brass so great to work with?
Brass is highly durable
Brass is polished easily
Brass is corrosion resistant
Brass is green: a highly machinable material makes it able to be accurately manufactured with less scrap, less rework and less energy than other materials. Products made from brass generally have good “cradle-to-grave” characteristics as not only do they show good durability but brass is also readily recycled at the end of the products working life.
Brass is lead and nickel free
Brass soft muted colouring makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.
