Alhena (ABML)
Antique Brass + Clear Satin

-

Antique Brass Alhena is a combination of brass & black nickel electroplating. The result is brass under a black brushline. Depending on the profile of components being finished; this finish results with dark moody areas in recesses and brass tones to highlights. To prevent tarnishing, the parts are then finished with a clear 2 pac baked through oven.

Application
Can be applied to any metal including aluminium, brass, stainless steel & mild steel. Often specified for doorware, handrails, retail fittings, signage. On large format panels and complex shapes, this brush polishing process will result in limitations to consistency. For complex welded frames & panels (including rangehoods for instance) areas which are hard to access will also show the variation of manual process. These may include an often desired darkness in recesses and hard to access areas adjacent to welds. However, for 3D profiles, darkening in recesses and highlights to the high points or corners are all bespoke variations typical of this and other "Antique" and "Aged" finishes.
