Brass and antimicrobial properties: Brass (a copper alloy) is a material known to man since prehistoric times. We love brass, not only for its beauty but, now that we are in the middle of a pandemic, for its antimicrobial properties. Any virus, bacteria or cell dies after a couple of hours of being in contact with this material (a reason why it is used for door knobs in hospitals), which helps reduce surface transmission of viruses and bacteria creating a more hygienic environment.
Other properties of brass: It is highly recyclable. It has the capacity to be recycled an infinite number of times, without losing its chemical or physical properties, which has significant environmental and economic advantages. It is highly resistant to corrosion, friction, and oxidation. We love brass! Discover our collection.
