    Our brass-plated steel is produced to extremely tight tolerances. Its consistent quality enables efficient and cost-effective processing. It has a brilliant surface appearance and excellent lubricity during forming. Our brass-plated steel products offer:

    •  outstanding formability
    • deep drawing properties

    Substrate tailored to your demand

    Tata Steel has proven expertise in the production of cold-rolled steel products and electroplating. We exercise stringent control of substrate and base metal properties. Our rolling, annealing and production capabilities allow us to combine the necessary substrate attributes with plating options for a product that will meet or exceed your expectations.

    Substrates include:

    • low carbon steel
    • *high-strength steel (including HSLA)
    • *stainless steel

    * Combined with plating, these substrates serve as an alternative to many stainless steels as well as high-performance copper-based alloys. Please contact us for grade availability.

    Main benefits of our brass-plated steel include:

    • scope to optimise end-products
    • trouble-free, repeatable processing
    • opportunities for cost savings
    • brilliant surface appearance
    • excellent lubricity during forming
