GoldBrite® Finish

Infinite possibilities in aluminum finishing solutions.

Description

Many designers admire the deep rich color and textures of brass, and it’s an alloy that offers many other appealing properties. But those same aesthetic looks can be obtained using GoldBrite ® which is the solution. Along with the rich gold-brass appearance it provides the engineer with reduced weight (60% less than brass). That means more metal for your money, and lowering inventory and freight costs. And to top it off, GoldBrite ® material is UV stable.
