Hello, I was wondering:
- Can red brass (85% Cu/15% Zn) be reduced in HCl + H2O2 to produce CuCl2 and ZnCl2 simultaneously?
- Then if HCl and water is added to bring the pH to say 4.0, could that solution (with 85/15 anodes) be used as a strike plate over mild steel?
- Then could I fill with acid copper and top with this "woods brass" again as a decorative finish?
Thanks for any info! :)
