Masterfully crafted through our unique process of layered application, we allow our colored lacquer to fully penetrate the metal with a tactile quality. Precision-applied physical vapor deposition (PVD) technology ensures the finish will withstand the test of time due to its high hardness, excellent adhesion, uniform coating, and superior wear resistance.

The Natural Beauty of Unlacquered Brass

As a material with a rich history dating back to the Victorian Era, brass is known for its durability and warm coloring. Golden brass tones are enjoying a resurgence in design circles, from charming traditional to modern minimalism.

Often called a living finish, Unlacquered Brass is the purest form of brass without a protective lacquer to shield it from the elements. Before it develops a natural patina, Unlacquered Brass exhibits a radiant golden shade.

How Oxidation Affects Unlacquered Brass

As the metal ages, it undergoes a natural process of oxidation, which darkens its color and enhances its distinctive, elegant character. Additionally, Unlacquered Brass bathroom faucets can be polished by hand to their original shiny state at any time. This versatile finish provides two exceptional approaches to your gold bathroom ideas, whether you desire the deep burnished luster of patina or a glowing bright sheen.
