Polishing Forged Brass


We need chemicals for improving the luster on forged brass automobile gears as a final operation after deburring. Can you suggest something?

I do not understand the need to polish gears unless you are trying to work harden its surface. For this process, it is best accomplished in mass finishing equipment using steel or S.S. ball media.

Mr C Sridhar.

The possible purpose of the desired luster is to improve POP sale (look good and attract) and perhaps to provide in transit protection as Madras is a " salty" city.

There are a number of simple routes to this available in Chennai. The simplest is to use a Brass Conditioner that will provide a Golden tinge / hue to the gear. And protect the finish in transit.
