Brass unlacquered, also known as raw or uncoated brass, is a finish that distinguishes itself by its natural evolution over time. Unlike polished brass, which maintains its initial shine due to a clear protective coating, brass unlacquered is left in its raw state without any additional coatings. Over time, this finish develops a unique patina as it reacts to environmental factors, such as air and moisture.
Patina is a thin layer that forms on the surface of brass, the base material, over time due to exposure to the elements, oxidation, and use. It often results in a change in color and texture, giving the material an aged and weathered appearance.
This evolving patina imparts an aged, vintage appearance that many architects and interior designers find inherently captivating. It not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of door hardware but also narrates a story of use and history, creating a sense of authenticity in your design. Furthermore, this patina effect comes with the advantage of minimal maintenance, making it an attractive option for those who value both beauty and practicality in their architectural and interior projects.
