Finishing Solution produces wide range of brown tones.

Designed for use on copper, brass, bronze, iron, and steel substrates, Antique Brown® M38 enables brush-on finishing of large surfaces or immersion finishing in batch quantities. When desired color tone is achieved, reaction is stopped by rinsing metal surface with water. Once dried, resulting finish can be highlighted or distressed, if desired, to produce oil-rubbed bronze finishes or rich...

Polymer-Based Finishing Solution promotes wear resistance.

Super-Finishing produces low roughness while hardening metal surface using single mechanical process. Mechanical lapping process creates organic layer that bonds into metal surface through chemical reaction, affecting surface roughness average, mean roughness depth, amplitude, and bearing area curve. Environmentally friendly solution does not use hazardous waste materials and can be applied to...
