Brass is the generic term for a range of copper-zinc alloys with different combinations of properties, including:

  • Strength
  • Hardness
  • Color
  • Ductility
  • Electrical
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Corrosion-resistance

These qualities make brass an excellent medium for the photo etching process.

Brasses have a range of attractive colors ranging from red to yellow to gold to silver, making it an excellent choice of material for ornamental items such as bookmarks, holiday ornaments, and keepsakes.

Brass, with its corrosion-resistant qualities, can be used in marine applications as well.
