Bright and Clean Brass & Copper Parts
In a Fraction of the Time and Cost

How well do we know brass cleaning? Since 1860’s well.

Believe it or not, Hubbard-Hall helped the Union Army keep its jacket buttons shining bright during the Civil War. We’ve spent over a century improving our products and proudly fly our flag as brass cleaning experts to this day.

That’s why when we say it’s possible to clean, deoxidize and brighten your copper alloys in a single, cost-effective step, you know we’ve got the experience to back it up. Designed for both light and heavy-duty applications, our cleaners combine detergents and additives to effectively remove soils and extrusion contaminants without marring the surface of the metal. These cleaners combine cleaning and protecting agents into a single solution. In doing so, they’re able to reduce steps and costs – sometimes by as much as 50%.

How Do You Choose the Right Brass/Copper Cleaner?

"Before switching to Aquaease® 2289, we used to clean and then bright dip our small copper and brass parts to get them ready for plating. We have now eliminated the bright dip step by switching to Aquaease® 2289."
