Do you customize?
--Yes, the majority of our business is either using our in-house designs, or further developing your own designs presented to us. We can modify by re-scaling, re-sizing, adding signage / script etc.
Can I choose a specific rust color or pattern?
--Each product has its own unique character and finish. The color variations are part of the intentional design and, being an organic process, it cannot be controlled.
What is the weight?
--It depends on the subject products. If it is a standard size sphere, then it would be easy for us to give you an estimate weight regardless of the error or deviation. If it is a customized product, all designs vary according to intricacy and negative/positive space, and if framing is necessary.
Colours of Brass
Brasses have a range of attractive colours,red, yellow, gold, brown, bronze, silver. Brass with 1% manganese will weather to a chocolate brown colour. Nickel silvers will polish to a brilliant silver colour. Brasses are easy to shape and, with all these colours available, it is not surprising that architects and designers have used brasses to enhance the appearance of new and refurbished buildings, both inside and out.
Brass and Hygiene
Copper and brass are playing a leading role in the fight against hospital-acquired infections such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile. It has been shown that these pathogens, which can be spread by touch, will die in a few hours on copper/brass surfaces. This does not happen on stainless steel or plastic.
The brass industry throughout the world is well organised and equipped to recycle products at the end of their long lives and process scrap (swarf and offcuts). Making brass from new (virgin) copper and zinc would be uneconomical and wasteful of raw materials so new brass products are made from recycled scrap, illustrating the sustainable nature of this material. In the UK brass manufacturers use almost 100% brass scrap.
Also called duplex brasses. Suited for hot working. It contains both α and β' phase; the β'-phase is body-centered cubic and is harder and stronger than α. Alpha-beta brasses are usually worked hot.
Can only be worked hot, and are harder, stronger, and suitable for casting.
Too brittle for general use. The term may also refer to certain types of nickel silver alloys as well as Cu-Zn-Sn alloys with high proportions (typically 40%+) of tin and/or zinc, as well as predominantly zinc casting alloys with copper additive.
