Sheet metals have been an integral part of the automotive and the construction industry since the Industrial Revolution. The first set of cars, after the steam locomotive, were prominent for its brass fittings and body. Meanwhile, the most popular example of architecture that successfully used sheet metals is the Chrysler Building in New York, which was once considered the tallest structure on earth.
This material gained popularity among car builders and building architects as they provided them with the right amount of flexibility to be creative. One cannot imagine that a heavy material like iron would be used in a skyscraper or as something to build the body of a Formula One race car. Lighter and more manageable alloy like brass is an ideal material for a fast-moving car and a celebrated building.
Brass sheet metal is likewise a good choice for artists who want to create hollowed sculptures. The brass’ color also has a glimmer that rivals that of gold, thereby giving it an air of class and elegance.
Quality brass sheet metals have several other applications spanning a wide range of industries. However, it’s always good to see great craftsmanship and metalwork when the alloy is used in a permanent structure which people look up to or used in a fast-moving object that car racing fanatics admire from a distance.
