Brass metal finishes

Metalier's Brass Liquid Metal Is A Traditional Alloy

It is available in two specifications which we have called gold brass and green brass.
All brass has a greenish aspect to it depending on the amount of zinc added to the copper base. We have called the greener version Green Brass and the more gold version is Gold Brass.

Metalier’s brass metal finish is made to our specification as to density and mesh in a factory in India. It is also made to our order as brass, like other metals oxidises as soon as it leaves the earth. Keeping it covered in a dark place helps to slow the oxidisation but cannot prevent it entirely. Metalier’s brass for its brass metal finishes is as fresh as it can be.

A Brass Liquid Metal Finish Gives A Light Cost Effective Result

Sheet metal brass is almost twice the price of even the most highly polished brass Metalier finish. And it is about one/seventh of the weight. A square metre of brass metal finish will weigh 7 kilograms at most whereas a brass sheet at 50mm thick weighs 35 kilos. This has huge implications for the use of metal in architectural applications. Walls and door lintels do not need to be strengthened to cope with the weight of solid brass. The look and feel of solid brass can be achieved on cost-effective substrates such as MDF. But if you need strength, then a brass metal finish on steel may be an alternative. Both options were used to great effect in The Sugar Club fit-out in Auckland, New Zealand.

Brass Metal Finishes Can Be Textured, Polished And Patinated

Brass can be polished to a very shiny finish. It can also be textured and then waxed, or not as takes your fancy. And it looks like it's existed forever when you take to it with a little green patina. Brass can be most effective when used in an older building – coat aluminium light switches and light fittings and push plates for example.

Use brass on kitchen cabinets, for negative detailing, on cafe bar fronts, on front doors, on kitchen islands, as detail in commercial fit-outs such as the Invive spa. And doesn't patinated brass look amazing on the ceilings at the new Westfield Mall in Newmarket
