Armourcoat, a decorative surface specialist, will introduce a new metal rust finish at the Retail Design Exhibition in March. The Rusteel finish offers an authentic rusted iron or patina effect, creating an aged, weather-beaten, metal surface.

This time-worn finish, similar to weathering (or Corten) steel, is created from a water-based paint with metal particles which naturally tarnish when activated. A sealer coat is used once the desired effect is achieved and provides a further protective layer. The finish is available exclusively through the ArmourFX modular panel system.

The ArmourFX range of panels has evolved from Armourcoat’s renowned applied seamless wall finishes. Armourcoat's specialist designers and artisan plasterers can create integrated custom wall panel systems or design statement single artwork pieces. The prefinished panels offer a rapid installation with ease of handling, and are ideal for projects under tight deadlines for completion.

Visit Armourcoat at stand H50, Retail Design Exhibition, 10-11th March at Olympia, London.
