OSPHO is Phosphoric Acid - please use proper precautions. http://www.ospho.com/images/Ospho%20SDS_new.pdf

I'll let the experts chime in, but I wold be doubtful that you would want to use it on brass that you care about.

Hello My Friends
To answer Trainman's question, yes I use Ospho on brass. It cleans it up nicely and, I have been using it for years. Then a coat of self etching primer and you are good to go.
Have a great day.
Jack
