Here’s the lowdown on the differences.
Aluminum Plates for Your Electric Branding Iron
Remember that our high-quality aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum plates can be used to brand food items, which you cannot do with brass branding plates.
Aluminum provides great quality as far as sharpness and detail on your brand, but in terms of length of life, it won’t last indefinitely and if heated incorrectly there is risk of damaging an aluminum plate.
Brass Plates for Your Electric Branding Iron
Brass is basically indestructible, so if you need a brander for your business or are simply looking for something you’ll never have to replace, brass is the best option.
Best of Both Worlds
All our plates are interchangeable, so you can create multiple designs for one iron, offering a wider range of options and creative possibilities when branding your goods.
It could be that you want both:
- Brass for the heavy, regular work, such as stamping leather items to sell.
- Aluminum might suit you as a cheaper option for things like branding business cards or bags that you only need to do occasionally.
