Our AM metal finishes are a 100% metal veneer coating that can be applied to numerous substrates to provide a cast/solid metal effect. They are recommended by designers and architects for use on commercial and private projects where a tailor-made bespoke finish is required. The coatings range includes bronze, brass, copper, pewter and verdigris with varying degrees of patina available. But we also offer a client supplied sheet metal patination service that includes blackened steel.
Areas where our coatings are used to elevate and promote a high-end finish include…
Wall cladding and panelling | balustrading | reception desks | doors | lighting | exhibition stands | furniture | sculpture | screens | garden structures | planters | fixtures & fittings | signage | shop display | museum displays | bars & restaurants | entrance control | public buildings & banks.
Surface preparation is a crucial part of this process as any flaw, no matter how tiny, will be visible on the finished surface.
Price is worked out per square metre coverage and our standard metal finishes are a set amount. For a gently polished finish there will be an additional cost of approximately one half again. For more information or to ask for a quote please call us on 01825 763485.
The samples below are sections of a random finish and variants within each finish should always be expected.
There are a variety of patina finishes that can be achieved by our specialist finishing process and we are always happy to work with designers or architects to attain a required brief.
Sealed or unsealed?
Our coatings can be sealed or left unsealed to age naturally depending on how the finish is expected to look years down the line. If left unsealed they will naturally patina over time, developing a burnished effect if the finish is touched or handled as with handrails and doors. However if the coating is sealed then the finish should remain the same even after many years. A verdigris finish is also available, see AM.5 Verdigris on our sample chart. The effect can vary from light to dark but the process will always result in a random look.
Our finishes/coatings are suitable for use indoors and out, and are stable in tested temperatures down to -10 degrees.
