Hi guys, I have a buckle that's cast with zinc alloy and plated with brass. Wondering if there are any good rudimentary tests that I could run to see how well the plating will hold up. So far I've scrubbed a section with steel wool and am now soaking the piece in vinegar and the platting is still holding up. Obviously this isn't going to be an exact science, but I'm hoping to get a feel for its longevity. The hardware is going to be used on a bag that will experience some outdoor use (maybe some occasional rain), but nothing too serious. Has anyone had good experience with brass plated hardware? Thanks!
