3 Shades of Gold Finishes: Exploring Polished Brass, Brushed Brass, and Vintage Brass
Apart from choosing the right kitchen or bath appliance for your home, finding the perfect finish is critical when developing the unique personal style you desire to emanate through your home décor.
At Kingston Brass, we offer a wide array of versatile finishes designed to accommodate your unique aesthetic preferences. In a closer look, we feature three finishes that emit various shades of gold. Not only are they trending for the spring season, but they are also incredible tones that serve as complementary accents for almost every home, no matter the color scheme.
Find the right golden hue for you. Not all gold shines the same, and that makes our range of golden shades unique and compatible for a wide range of color and aesthetic preferences.
Gleaming with a pure golden hue, our polished brass finish truly sparkles with its bright, glistening, and glossy finish that is sure to catch your eye.
Kingston Brass’ polished brass finish features PVD coating.
PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a molecular process by which a faucet is finished with a uniform layer of deposited metals, metal alloys or metal nitrides and oxides.
The resulting finish is a molecularly bonded finish that has become part of your faucet rather than a “dipped” or spray-coated faucet. The process is carried out in a large vacuum chamber (.013 atmospheres). The faucets are placed into the evacuated chamber while an inert gas such as argon is backfilled and ionized. This cleans and prepares the parts for the metal deposition process.
A metal is introduced to a high current, low voltage electrical arc resulting in a gaseous and ionized metal that is then accelerated at high energy and introduced to the chamber with inert or reactive gases.
The different mixtures of gases will react with the deposited metal resulting in various colors we see on faucets. For instance, zirconium and nitrogen are used to make the popular polished brass we see on most door handles and faucets.
The process is eco-friendly and results in a clean, polished appearance when applied over a polished surface. The coating resists damage caused by salt and other corrosive materials. It offers a durable exterior presence, known to be scratch-resistant also.
