Cycle of oxidation for COR-TEN steel
Professionals working in the craft or industrial field can change the degree of homogeneity of the aspect by simply adjusting the application of the oxidizer:
- To obtain an homogeneous oxidation it is recommended a blended application of the product
- On vertical surfaces it is possible to simulate to perfection the corrosive effect of time simply by applying a generous amount of oxidizer, so that the drops can slide along the surface of the material resulting in the typical leached effect.
- In the same way, the abundant application of the oxidizer on horizontal surfaces allows to faithfully replicate the stains of COR-TEN steel of various sizes.
The cycle of oxidation proposed by Cromas consists in the application of an oxidizing solution, a primer able to fix the oxidation and finally a product by a matte finish with a basis of resins. This cycle is solvent-based: for the coating in places that meet the COV standards, after the application of the oxidizer it is necessary to apply protective waxes.
