I have heard that the ammonia in brasso can wear down the intergety of the brass. Is this true? If not then i may start ussing it as it is cheaper.....




....Sorry to get off topic but i have been thinking about that for a while.

Double Ditto.

I have been told never to use brasso as it weakens the brass. For more info check over on castboolits.com and search for brasso threads. A much better media additive IMO is "NuFinish" car polish.

you guys are absolutley right. ammonia actually dissolves the brass like acid. while it isn't visble to the naked eye, you can watch it happen under a hi powered microscope. I've actually seen it occur.
