WHY WE LOVE WORKING WITH BRASS AND YOU WILL ALSO!
- 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
- Brass is lead and nickel free
- Brass soft muted honey colouring, makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.
brass will naturally darken (called a patina) as it ages. You may like the
antique it creates however if you want to bring the piece back to a
shiny brass simply use one of these cleaning methods:
- Boil 1 cup of water, add a tblsp vinegar
and drop of washing up detergent. Combine all ingredients in a jar &
shake for 30 seconds. Dry on a paper towel.
