METALFIN CROCODILE


The effect with the pattern Crocodile is achieved by creating a layer of Metalfin and subsequent forming of the pattern by means of a structural roller. Metalfin is a designer decorative compound that is thinned with water and based on acrylic and polyurethane resins, with natural metal additives that comprise approx. 80% of the product. The compound is enhanced with quartz particles. Can be used to produce various textures, allowing you to design your interiors and accessories in many varying ways. To create the desired pattern, grind the surface with sandpaper type 320-1200 and/or add gloss with a trowel. Available in several types and colours due to different content of metals: BRONZO, OLD BRONZO, DARK RAME, OLIVE, BRASS, OLD BRASS, GOLD BRASS, ROSE, NICKIEL, BEIGE, ALU, OLD ALU. Each type can be applied using different tools, i.e. trowel, paint brush, steel scraper, roller, and by spraying. Enables you to create an interesting and fashionable metallic effect. It is easy to apply, work on, grind, and add gloss, providing unlimited possibilities, crucial while designing individual interiors. Goes very well with natural decorative elements such as stone, wood, metal, glass, ceramics, and with other ECORSON products as well. Enriches the interior and adds a unique touch. Requires preserving with varnish intended for Metalfin to increase resistance to dirt. Although it is intended for interiors, it can be also used outdoors. However, keep in mind that weather conditions and natural oxidation processes may affect its appearance and cause discolouration. When applied, the varnish can stop the process at a certain stage.

Applications

  • elements made from furniture boards,
  • all interior walls,
  • living rooms, bedrooms, cloakrooms,
  • architectonic interior elements,
  • kitchens, bathrooms,
  • pillars, columns, fireplaces,
  • slanted and plain ceilings,
  • hallways, halls, staircases,
  • interior decorative objects: plant pots, lamps, chairs, armchairs, statuettes, … atd.

We recommend to apply the effect on gypsum-carton boards, gypsum plasters, on smooth surfaces and various stable plasters and substrates. Very often it is successfully used to decorate the interiors of public buildings (for example, hotels, conference halls, operas, theater halls, cinemas, shops, offices, educational and cultural facilities, medical and industrial facilities), also flats, houses, staircases. The effect is suitable to decorate any interior where we desire to create exclusive, designer, industrial, loft and modern atmosphere. Also suitable for surfaces that get often dirty (if impregnated). The system can be applied on any sorts of architectonic elements.

Properties/Advantages

  • high durability,
  • high elasticity and plasticity,
  • resistant to mechanical damage and washing,
  • longevity of color,
  • high degree of dirt resistance.

It helps to create exclusive designer as well as naturally looking interiors and decorative objects.

Colours/Selection/Rules

When selecting colours for a given interior, several factors must be taken into account as they affect our perception of the colours, aesthetics, and our mood. The swatches and the catalogues available on the market are for illustration purposes only, frequently in the form of a photography of the colour printed on single quality paper (glossy or matt) and do not represent the actual perception of the final effect. ECORSON produces original colour and texture samples of individual products to make the choice easier. Keep in mind that small, ready colours or textures in swatches may slightly differ visually from final effects in particular interiors. If you lack colour intuition, we recommend making a larger sample or hiring a Designer or Decorator who can suggest individual and appropriate choices. Keep in mind that the colour on a small swatch (even an original one) may look different on a large surface due to a number of factors such as other nearby colours that dominate the room (barely visible colour of glass panes, floor, furniture, etc.), the amount of sunlight and the time of day, direction, the type of artificial light (warm or cold, scattered or beam), and distribution of the colour. The same rule applies while selecting colours and painting outdoors as we are close to nature and affected by it. All these factors saturate the walls with their colours, tones, and shades (and vice versa), interfuse, and create collages, often beautiful. It must be taken into consideration when selecting colours. Our perception of colours is significantly affected by light. We do not recommend applying two different colours or products on corners as the colour should be determined by the shape. Have fun with colours and textures, remember that they can change a lot in our interiors, for example affect the perception of size and distance, add warmth and cosiness, or create a cold and fresh appearance. The colour and the texture may cause desired feelings and affect our mood. As it is our passion, we wish to share it with you. ECORSON team.

General application principles

All work on a given substrate should be performed and finished with products from the same production batch, with the same serial number, as there may be slight differences in the base that may affect the final colour and effect. The instructions to perform the work in a professional manner are based on basic occupational health and safety rules, and guidelines described in the following sheets: technical, application system, adapting work to conditions (i.e. temperature, humidity, drafts, etc.), and proper surface preparation.

Before we begin painting, it is very important to verify the technical condition of the substrate and follow the guidelines related to its proper preparation. The substrate should be: stable, dry, cleaned, all cavities should be filled and any fungi should be removed if necessary. Dust must be removed from the surface, as well as any built up dirt and grease. If the surface does not meet the requirements, old layers of paint, which should adhere to the substrate well and endure the adhesiveness of the new finish, must be removed mechanically. When working on mineral textures that have never been painted, ensure they are clean and free of defects (new plasters should be painted after 3-4 weeks of stabilisation or after the time indicated by the producer of the plaster, putty, filler, etc.)

In order to achieve a level and homogeneous surface on a given substrate, the work should be performed by a single person using the same tools, with a short application time (without pauses) for each coat so the whole wall may be covered with wet paint.

The final effect depends on the user's skills, tools, and the amount of product applied. Therefore, the efficiency, samples, and other parameters presented here are illustrative and approximate only, calculated based on several years of experience and research, applicable to optimal climatic conditions (approx. +23°C and 65% humidity). The parameters may change in other conditions. However, due to a great variety of substrates and application conditions, it is necessary to verify the product and its effectiveness by testing it individually under given conditions.

If the surface requires washing, the whole wall must be washed with similar motions and using the same tools and liquids. Wash the tools with water immediately after use. ECORSON is not responsible for non-intended use of the product and uses inconsistent with the principles, also when used beyond our reasonable control.
