Muntz Metal and Naval Brass are copper alloys composed of 60% copper and 40% zinc. They have a rich golden color and are widely used architectural community for elevator cabs, entrances, revolving doors, swing doors, and storefront just to name a few.

All copper based alloys have a tendency to tarnish with age. Tarnishing is caused by oxidation from exposure to air. In order to keep them looking good, it's necessary to clean off tarnish and polish your objects as needed. Many customers choose to lacquer their brass/bronze products to keep them from tarnishing.

Cleaning Muntz / Naval

Dirt, grime, fingerprints, and slight traces of oxidation can be removed using a solution made up of 50% lacquer thinners and 50% water. Be sure to clean the panels only with the direction of the grain, never against the grain. You will need to use a lint free cloth for the cleaning, then rinse the panel using clean water, and wipe with a dry lint free cloth to dry.
