New Presto Black® Brush-On Gel Ideal For Blackening Large, In-Place Architectural Metal Surfaces Including Wallpanels And Railings

Published on 2010-08-12. Author : SpecialChem

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minnesota -- Brush or swab-on the new Presto Black® Gel over large, in-place architectural iron or steel surfaces for a uniform finish at Room Temperature. Without runs or drips, any size surface in vertical or horizontal position can be converted to a beautiful silver/black gunmetal finish.

Great for most metal surfaces including iron, steel, copper, brass, bronze and other metals, the Presto Black Gel and Antique Black Gel are simple and safe to use. The gel clings to vertical surfaces and stays where applied without forming runs or drips or bleeding onto adjoining surfaces.

Applied at room temperature, the Presto Black Gel reaction takes about 5 to 10 minutes following the normal surface cleaning to remove oil, oxides and welding flux. Color tone and depth is easily controlled by visual inspection and stopping the process by rinsing off with a wet sponge and allowing the surface to dry. That easy.

The Presto Black Gel finish can be highlighted or distressed to achieve a distressed pewter look. Final step is to add a clear topcoat such as a satin-gloss urethane lacquer and topped with paste wax. This provides excellent protection with an attractive appearance.

Presto Black Gels are user proven in a wide range of applications in many different industries. Some of these include: building fascia, elevator cabs, staircase railings and handrails, sculpture, monuments and window hardware.

Three Presto Black Gel products are available for different types of finishes as follows:

  • Presto Black Gel for black on iron and steelwork.
  • Antique Black Gel for black on copper, brass and bronze parts.
  • Antique Brown Gel for brown on copper, brass and bronze parts.

All of the Presto Black Gel products are available in 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers ready for easy application.
