If plastic pens are your go-to writing buddy, it's time to switch sides and join the brass brigade! At agood company, we believe in creating sustainable and eco-friendly products. That's why we use brass for our pens - it's lightweight yet durable, non-toxic, recyclable, and has a long lifespan.

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc that has been used for centuries in crafting a wide variety of objects, now including our pens. It is lightweight yet durable, non-toxic, recyclable, and has a long lifespan which makes it an ideal choice for manufacturing pens. With agood pens, you can write with peace of mind knowing that you're using a product that is good for the planet.

By using brass, we are not only able to deliver a superior product but also contribute to a more sustainable future, and that is something we are incredibly proud of at our company.

What is it?

Brass is a metal alloy that has been used by humans for thousands of years. It is primarily composed of copper and zinc, with the ratio of the two metals determining the properties of the resulting brass alloy. The addition of zinc to copper gives brass its unique properties, including improved strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion. Depending on the specific composition of the alloy, brass can range in color from a reddish-brown to a bright yellow-gold hue. It is a malleable and ductile material that can be shaped into a variety of forms, from intricate decorative objects to sturdy mechanical parts. Brass is also a popular choice for musical instruments due to its excellent acoustic properties. Its versatility and aesthetic appeal make it a sought-after material in a variety of industries, including architecture, engineering, and manufacturing.

Here are a few reasons why brass is a great material for our pens:

  • Non-rusting, hardwearing metal that lasts a long time.
  • Perfect for making components of precision items such as mechanical pens.
  • Lightweight yet durable.
  • Non-toxic and recyclable.
  • Ideal choice for manufacturing eco-friendly pens.
