Brass mesh treatments and finishes

Codina’s brass meshes can be manufactured with the metal in its natural state or with a lacquer treatment:

  • Natural Finish: In its natural state, brass has a bright golden yellow color. As it is exposed to air and humidity, it develops a brown or dark green surface layer called patina. Patina is a desirable aesthetic feature when an antique, aged appearance is desired.
  • Lacquer finish: This type of finish involves the application of a layer of lacquer or varnish on the brass mesh to protect it against corrosion and give it a specific appearance. The lacquer can be clear to maintain the natural look of the brass or it can be colored to add an additional design element.
