Finest Metal Plating, Coating, and Polishing

Patina and Lacquer Coating

Patinas are so-called “living” finishes. Patinas have been around practically since the beginning of the bronze age, centuries before plating, powder coating, and PVD were born. They are not a coating, but a surface treatment of the base metal that changes over time as the surface oxidizes, hence they are “living” finishes. The surface finish can be retained by applying a clear lacquer coating to the surface.
