Weathering Steel



Weathering Steel

Range of uses

Thick coat metal effect colouring system comprising Phase I Base material and Phase II Activator. May be applied to virtually any substrate imaginable.

Product properties

Jansen Weathering Steel may be used almost wherever that individual rusty look is required inside or outside. After at least 3 Phase I coatings, the treated surface may also be used as a magnet board. On the inside, a top coat (see final coat) may be applied for stain protection. To preserve the character of a slight constant change of surface appearance, we recommend allowing exterior surfaces to continue weathering. The activator may also be used to individually rust bare carbon steel or iron. Every surface is unique..
