Oxidation

Metal oxidation without galvanizing

Luxury oxidation on metals for design and architecture

Home / Work / Oxidation

Metals are living elements that respond to atmospheric agents and, unlike paints, they are subject to chemical corrosion, resulting in a more or less marked effect.

Oxidation is a chemical process that involves the formation of salts on a surface. Metal reacts to this process by oxidising, resulting in a finish that varies in colour and shade, depending on your needs.

Materica performs various oxidation and burnishing treatments on metals such as brass, copper, zinc, mild steel, and stainless steel.

Oxidised surfaces are subsequently treated with clear organic paints, oils, and waxes, depending on their required use.

These processes are performed to guarantee uniformity and repetition accuracy, making them ideal for use in architectural and interior design settings.

We’re available to develop customised treatments together with our customers.
