Brass

Introduction to Brass

brass parts

Brass is a metal alloy made of a combination of copper and zinc. It demonstrates excellent electrical conductivity and good machinability. Known for its low friction properties and gold-like appearance, brass is commonly used in the architecture sector as well as to manufacture gears, locks, pipe fittings, musical instruments and more.

Surface Finishes for Your Choosing

Name Description Materials Color Texture Link
surface finish powder coating
Powder Coating Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light. Aluminum

Black, any RAL code or Pantone number

Gloss or semi-gloss

surface finish electroplating
Electroplating Electroplated coating preserves the surface of parts and resists rusts and other defects from causing decay by applying electric currents to reduce metal cations.

Aluminum, steel, stainless steel

surface finish polishing
Polishing

Ranging from Ra 0.8~Ra0.1, polishing processes use an abrasive material to rub the part’s surface to make the shine more less shiny, depending on your requirements.

Smooth, glossy finish

surface finish painting
Painting

Painting involves spraying a layer of paint onto the surface of the part. Colors can be matched to a Pantone color number of the customer’s choosing, while finishes range from matte to gloss to metallic.
