Brushed Brass

We take our iconic, golden-coloured basis brass and add a brushed finish to take away the shine. Perfect for contemporary interiors, where matte is a must, this duller surface makes for a striking focal point in the home. Our customers have used their brushed brass sheets to create stunning splashbacks, wall coverings and more. And it’s not just good looks that this one has got going for it: the brushed texture makes it less likely to attract fingerprints and other marks, so it’s easier to maintain, too. Before we send you your brushed brass, we add a crystalline wax to lock in the finish and protect it for years to come.

What is Brushed Brass?

Brass Without Brassiness

We take our iconic, golden-coloured basis brass and add a brushed finish to take away the shine. Perfect for contemporary interiors, where matte is a must, this duller surface makes for a striking focal point in the home. Our customers have used their brushed brass sheets to create stunning splashbacks, wall coverings and more. And it’s not just good looks that this one has got going for it: the brushed texture makes it less likely to attract fingerprints and other marks, so it’s easier to maintain, too. Before we send you your brushed brass, we add a crystalline wax to lock in the finish and protect it for years to come.

Even before brushing, our sheet brass (also known as CZ108 or basis brass) is an excellent metal for use in interior design. As well as its timeless golden hue, this alloy of zinc and copper is a brilliant all-rounder: it’s easy to engrave and work whether cold or hot, and possesses a high tensile strength.

As with all our products, we offer a free cutting service on our brushed basis brass, plus there’s no minimum order. So, if you’re looking for a stylish sheet metal to use in your home, we can help, no matter how big or small the project.

Good for:
Interior design, splashbacks, kitchens, bathrooms, focal points, wall coverings, signage, art.

How it’s made:

Zinc and copper are melted down and mixed together with the aid of a red-hot furnace. For our CZ108 sheets, we use a high concentration of 37% zinc, which makes the finished product more workable and versatile. The mix is poured into moulds to cool into solid blocks called cakes. When they’re cool enough, the cakes are put through rolling machines to transform them into flat sheets. Each sheet is ‘scalped’, a process that involves the removal of the oxidised outer layer. In many cases, the basis brass is reheated and / or cold-rolled, until it reaches the desired thickness and strength. We then brush the CZ108 to remove any shine and create that matte look, before sealing it all in with crystalline wax

Benefits:
Bright golden colour
Contemporary matte finish
Workable (hot and cold)
Strong and long-lasting

Random fact:
You’re probably closer to the nearest piece of brass than you think, given the fact that this metal is used for hundreds of everyday household items. Zips, buttons, keys, plug pins, door handles, letterboxes, watches and clocks all utilise brass.
