Brass is a non-ferrous metal that can withstand high temperatures and resist corrosion. It’s an ideal material for use as identification in applications exposed to the elements, or those that desire brass tags stamped and engraved with a decorative, ornamental look.
The exact properties of brass depend on the specified composition, which allows the material to be customized for the application. Generally speaking, brass is valued for the ease with which it can be formed into desired shapes while retaining high strength. Also, a high copper content allows the metal to create a protective oxide layer on its surface that guards against corrosion. Additional characteristics of brass include:
Durability, weather resiliency, and relative ease of production make brass one of the most widely used identification product materials. It's often specified for valve tags and tool or equipment checks, and it helps facilities comply with federal regulations for equipment labeling.
