Brass forged component finishing
We have developed a brass forged component like a burner which to look aesthetically good I need to know which process can be adopted. The process should not change the dimensional characteristics.Chandrasekaran
Hello, Chandrasekaran. I think you may want to retain the assistance of an industrial designer who is familiar with metal finishing to work with you "hands on". How we can come to agreement on 'look aesthetically good' on a product that you haven't even told us what it is, or what setting it will find itself in. Should it be brass colored (bright or antique) or black or some other patina color? Must it be smoothed/polished first or be made matte? ? What mechanical or chemical processes will not damage this component? Thanks.

I need to know the component to suggest a finish.
I think we have a translation problem here. Ted was indicating that there is just not enough good information here to make a recommendation. There are too many options. Size of part, thickness, weight, current finish and expected finish are all needed for a good answer.
