Brass is a copper alloy that is composed of 70% copper and 30% zinc. Because of its brighter, yellowish color, this specific alloy is sometimes referred to as “yellow brass” to distinguish it from other copper alloys such as muntz metal, architectural bronze, and commercial bronze. Brass is popularly used for hardware and also has architectural applications.

Brass properties
Yellow brass generally has good corrosion resistance, moderately high strength, and good ductility. It is typically available in a variety of forms, including rods, bars, and sheets. Products frequently made from yellow brass include door handles, locks and hinges, and some architectural, plumbing, and electrical components.

Cleaning Brass
Brass can be cleaned by using a solution of 50% lacquer thinners and 50% water to remove dirt, grime, fingerprints, and traces of oxidation. When cleaning brass, clean only with the direction of the grain, rather than against the grain. Use a lint-free cloth to clean the surface, then rinse the metal, and finally wipe dry with another clean, lint-free cloth.
