The full (sheet) story on aged and antiqued brass.

Chemetal offers myriad Brass and Brass looks.

Chemetal currently offers several popular aged and antiqued brass designs. We make these designs by hand and machine, darkening, brushing and finishing to create a beautiful design material with a manufacturing consistency.

Since these designs can look similar when viewed in a small sample or on the web, we want to describe and illustrate the differences between these classic brass materials. Six designs are shown here, four of which are real brass, and available in 2′ x 8′ and 2′ x 10′ sheets. These come standard with a low pressure laminate backer, which makes handling these heavier metals easier (brass is heavier than aluminum). They are also available as “metal only”, with no backer.

The two other designs shown here are Gilt Aluminum and Khaleesi Aluminum, new, 4′ x 8′ sheets of printed aluminum, with impressive depth and reflectivity and subtle colors.

Of course, there are other brass metal “looks” in Chemetal’s massive collection, but our focus here is to give you better visuals and understanding of our aged and antiqued brass designs.
