Metal Expression
Metal Coating Process

Metal Expression's metal coating process creates a buffed metal finish on a variety of substrates, including concrete,wood, glass, vinyl, textured wallpaper and glazed tile. Itis suitable for both interior and exterior application.

The odorless, nontoxic product combinesa polymer resin with actual metals. Available finishes includecopper, brass, light or dark bronze, tin (nickel silver), andaluminum.

After preparing the surface and applying a water-based epoxy primer,a mix of polymer and metal powder is applied to the surface with a sprayer, brush or roller. After it dries, buffing with steel wool or a metal brush takes away the residue and exposes the metal. Antique effects can be achieved on bronze, brass and copper through the use of reactive chemicals.
