  • History and Origin of Brass in India

    The brass is a yellow colored metal and an alloy of copper and zinc. An alloy is a combination of two or more metals that imparts greater strength to the metal. Occasionally some other elements like lead, tin, arsenic are used to promote resistance. A combination of two metals provides an excellent characteristic and greater malleability to the metal.

    Brass production in Indian subcontinent is dated back to the first century BC which also introduced speltering for the first time. Speltering is a process that directly combines metallic zinc and copper to form a strong alloy. Speltering allowed brass makers to have more control over the zinc content and, since then the properties of the brass were fully known. This process, however, depends upon the availability of zinc. The first metallic zinc was produced near Zawar region of Rajasthan around 14th century.

    Calamine brass is another quality of brass that was produced using copper and zinc oxide during same time. Calamine brass was produced using a process known as cementation process, whereby copper was melted in a huge crucible along with ground smithsonite (or calamine) ore at high temperatures. Such a high temperature vaporizes the zinc present in and permeates the copper, thereby producing a relatively purer quality of brass with between only15 and 30 percent of zinc content.

    Brass's unique properties resulted in production of many technical instruments like clocks, watches, chronometers and navigational tools. Brass's characteristic ability to be rolled into thin, corrosion-resistant, non-magnetic and low friction sheets makes it ideal for many items of armaments and ornamentation. Nowadays the applications of the brass include plumbing fixtures, self-propelling articles like thermostats and electrical components.
