Tata Steel offers a range of cold-rolled steel strip products electroplated with brass. These products have excellent performance features and provide a cost-effective alternative to solid brass.

Our brass-plated steel products are used in numerous applications from sporting ammunition to household goods. Their consistent quality enables trouble-free processing.

Our cold-rolled steel strip is manufactured to consistently tight dimensional tolerances. Stringent process control ensures excellent adhesion of the pure brass layer during electroplating. The finished product has a brass layer that is uniform, clean and free of oxides. Our products are available in a choice of surface finish to suit your applications.

Tata Steel’s brass-plated steel strip products offer significant benefits for your processing operations. They have outstanding formability. Their deep-drawing properties enable reliable production of components in demanding shapes.

For added benefits, we can tailor our products to meet your exact processing and end-product requirements.

Main benefits of our brass-plated steel include:
  • end-products of consistent and reliable quality
  • improved end-product performance
  • trouble-free, repeatable processing
  • minimised waste
  • extended tool life
  • control of substrate and base metal properties
