Processing brass fittings at the highest level
Manufacturers of sanitary fittings put their trust in Menzerna polishing pastes
Leading manufacturers of bath fittings rely on Menzerna polishing pastes for mechanical surface treatment. The goal of manufacturers is to keep their processes streamlined and their scrap rates low. This requires precise processing, especially on brass. No polishing marks are permitted on the often complex work piece geometries after polishing. On the one hand, this is to reduce the proportion of manual post-processing. On the other than, chrome plating that is galvanically applied after polishing can otherwise come off. Menzerna offers a selection of high-performance pastes that takes the special requirements of the fittings industry into account.
Emulsions for processing brass fittings
A complete product range, optimised for downstream process steps
Polishing pastes and emulsions are not permitted to form any residues on the fittings that are difficult to remove, so as not to excessively contaminate the degreasing bath. Furthermore, the possibility of galvanically applied coatings subsequently coming off surfaces that were not fully degreased has to be excluded. In addition to the usual polishing tests, Menzerna subjects every formulation to comprehensive degreasing tests. Menzerna offers a complete range of products for fitting manufacturers. All polishing stages are covered. Mill scale, throwing marks or grinding marks: Menzerna consistently offers a suitable process. No matter whether the surface is to be brushed, prepared for galvanising or polished to a high-gloss finish. High-quality polishing minerals ensure polishing results of consistently high quality. After all, chrome gloss on sanitary fittings and other galvanically coated components only comes into its own with proper polishing prior to coating.
Menzerna supports the bath fitting industry with the processing of new materials
Laws require a significant reduction of the lead content in brass alloys for drinking water fittings. This also results in new requirements for polishing. Menzerna supports the fittings industry in the polishing of low-lead brass with technical and data-supported industrial consulting.
