Ardenbrite Metallic Paint is regularly used in churches, museums, homes, radiators, iron gates, statues, picture frames, railings and street furniture, to name a few. Please read the technical data sheets for individual products to find out the full preparation and application methods.
Ardenbrite Metallic Paint is best used for brightening the appearance of various different substrates giving the effect of a brand new metal surface even if the surface is not actually metal itself. Available in bronzes, silvers and golds, Ardenbrite Metallic Paint is a great way of refurbishing old garden or home appliances like fences and radiators, giving them an aesthetically pleasing finish.
Ardenbrite Metallic Paint can be applied using brush, roller or conventional spray, however we would recommend using spray for a more uniform appearance. This also allows for quicker application to a larger surface area. Ardenbrite Metallic Paint is available in 0.5, 1 and 2.5 litre tubs and has a good coverage rate of approximately 12m2 per litre. After 15-30 minutes, Ardenbrite Metallic Paint will be touch dry depending on the temperature and conditions. After 1-2 hours, you will be able to apply a second coat of Ardenbrite Metallic Paint.
