About these Finishes
These finishes are either chemically induced “living” or untreated “natural” brass. The chemical process used, oxidizes the surface producing the desired finish. As a result, both finishes will darken and patina, if not immediately, then over time. The degree of change is dependent on many factors including environmental, e.g. Exposure to humidity and temperature or Applied factors e.g. perspiration, cleaning agents, wear and abrasion. Therefore, the durability of the finish is low and directly related to its environment..
The darkness and colour hue is affected by the material composition. It is not always possible to colour match between different parts, areas of parts or colour samples viewed or purchased. Spots may appear and even areas of a “greenish” patina. This is a result of the copper in the brass substrate oxidising. This is a normal effect of these natural and living finishes.
Wax is applied to some if the finishes to provide a degree of stabilisation and protection.
