‘Red brasses’ comprise copper 84-86%, zinc 15%, with traces of lead and iron, used for weather stripping, plumbing pipe and radiator cores.  These have good hot and cold working properties.

An alloy of copper with zinc as the principal alloying element. Definition and nomenclature for copper alloys is complex, but in common use ‘brass’ is reserved for copper alloys with enough zinc to affect the colour, which can be detected at a level of about 5% zinc.

The conservation of historic lighting covers a wide range of metals including ormolu, silver, tin, copper and brass, and many decorative techniques and finishes. As functional objects, light fittings have frequently suffered from unsympathetic modification over the years.We have a high level of expertise in the cleaning and repair of all forms of lighting including chandelier frames, mounts and furniture, Colza and oil lamps, lanterns, gas and acetylene fittings and electric fittings. This frequently includes the remaking of lost fittings and the replacement of glass, preparation for rewiring, the fitting of current EU standard fittings (both standard and low voltage), and certificated testing by qualified electricians. We are very experienced in this field and can liaise with your electrician to bring your historic light fittings up to current safety standards, while maintaining the appropriated aged appearance.We also undertake the replication of decorative chain and other hangings and have significant experience in the safety requirements for the hanging of lighting.

Occasionally, other metals such as lead may be added to produce, for example, leaded brasses. Past use of the term included copper-tin alloys now referred to as ‘bronzes’. An alloy of copper 78% – 80%, zinc 20%, was called ‘orichalcum’ by the Romans (also the name of naturally occurring cu/au alloy in South America).

For example, a weathervane may be largely formed from wrought iron but also have copper elements, and the whole object will probably have a selection of surface finishes such as paint, natural patina or leaf gilding. A whole host of combinations may present themselves, but the breadth of our specialty allows us to confidently advise on and carry out work required when these important elements of a building show signs of their vulnerability.

‘Cartridge brasses’ comprise copper 68%, zinc 30%, with traces of lead and iron; these are used for locks, hinges, light fittings, pins and rivets.
