  • Metallic and rust effect paints| Classic Mettal.

    Classic Mettal is our range of ready-to-use metal paints that give the coated surface an authentic metallic finish as they contain metallic particles of copper, bronze, iron and brass, depending on the desired result. The decorative possibilities of these metal paints are endless on non-trafficable surfaces such as walls or furniture. The most attractive finishes give an industrial, sophisticated and original touch to interiors and exteriors.

    But the versatility of this innovative paint goes far beyond that. Thanks to the application of our rust activator Mettal Activator, Classic Mettal becomes a rust effect paint that gives the surfaces on which it is applied a very natural aged effect. A rust effect paint that is highly recommended for walls and ideal for replicating that vintage style that never goes out of fashion.

    In addition to the varied decorative finishes it offers, Classic Mettal stands out for being a metallic and rust effect paint with great durability, excellent adhesion and high resistance to weathering if the appropriate varnish or sealant is applied. This is why it can also be used without any problems on exterior surfaces such as building facades, pillars or walls.
