The origin of brass can be traced to the early years of civilization when people used the versatile metal to craft weapons and armor. Today, brass can be found virtually everywhere.
Spark-free and safe
In environments such as refineries and oil fields that contain explosive fumes, materials, or liquids, brass tools are safe for use since their softness prevents any kind of friction. A brass hammer hitting a steel surface wouldn’t cause any sparking that could accidentally ignite any volatile chemicals.
