metallicote® is a fast and simple coating system which visually transforms wood into a new or patinated metal effect. What makes metallicote® unique is the speed with which wood can be transformed, making it more suitable for large scale production speeds. When used with conventional spray equipment, one can finish and deliver big projects in a single day.
metallicote® is mixed with our VLi® 6884/460 PU binder and spray-applied to give a genuine metallic finish that is cold to the touch. metallicote® can also be patinated with a variety of chemical solution sprays to form a thin layer of patination on top of the metal coat. This can be done with copper, brass, bronze and similar metals to achieve verdigris, rust and more.
metallicote® can also be textured to give a unique appearance.
