Satin Brass

Satin brass is a raw unlacquered material designed to age and patina over time. It has been brushed so it has a matte appearance. It will change as it reacts with its environment and daily use – we describe this as a ‘living finish’. Satin Brass is especially well suited to add character and interest in both modern and traditional homes.


Perrin & Rowe tapware must be installed by a Licensed Plumber in accordance with the installation instructions provided, best trade practices and must comply to local plumbing regulations in your area. Incorrect installation may damage your tap and could invalidate your warranty.

Following the provided installation guide, please ensure your plumber uses gloves when handling your living finish products during installation. Once installed, ask your plumber to cover the fittings with a towel to avoid scratches and damage from debris, paint, solvents, silicone and commercial cleaning products.


Following a simple cleaning routine after use will maintain the beauty of your brassware, and preserve the warranty. Ideally, fittings should be dried with a soft cloth after each use. Clean regularly by dampening a microfibre cloth with warm water combined with a mild PH-neutral liquid soap, then polish with a soft, lint-free cloth to finish. Microfibre cloths are ideal as they are gentle but effective at cleaning brassware without scratching.

As Satin Brass is a brushed finish, it is more susceptible to staining and marks, so it is important to rinse off any spattered food or cleaning products. To refurbish uneven staining, use a dry, gentle abrasive cloth like Scotchbrite or a 320 grit sanding sponge (3M) and gently brush the surface in the same direction to restore the matte appearance.


Perrin & Rowe living finishes – Satin Brass (SB) and Polished Brass (BR) are unlacquered brass with no coatings applied and are not warranted for any change in colour or finish of the appearance. Living finishes are characterful natural materials and are designed to patina and change over time.
