Codina’s brass meshes can be manufactured with natural metal 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 moisture, it develops a dark brown or green-toned surface layer called a patina. Patina is a desirable aesthetic feature when looking for an antique, aged look.
  • Lacquered finish: This type of finish involves applying a layer of lacquer or varnish over 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
