Brass name plates are used for a variety of labeling purposes. Their applications include inventory control, product identification, and informing workers.

Brass is an excellent choice of metal for making nameplates. Brass plate is corrosion resistant, will weather naturally to give an “antique” or weathered appearance, or with a lacquer applied can be made to look bright, stylish and golden.

Applications for Brass Name Plate

Nameplates such as the “Simmons” example shown below are used for branding of indoor and outdoor furniture and other items. Brass complements wood very nicely, and many wooden products bear brass plates with the makers name on them. Award Plaques, signs for doors and on buildings, commemorative plaques and asset tags are other examples.

Because brass weathers naturally, and has good resistance to corrosion by sea salt, it is often found in marine applications, and in harsh industrial applications, such as rating plates for boilers, engines and machinery.
