A-Patina Grau is our Premium Collection product that gives metal a “galvanized” effect.

Industrial, unfinished, tough, resilient, durable: these are just a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe galvanization, which has a long history in the architectural world, dating back to 1830 and the construction of the London Docks.

Today galvanization is widely used on facades, especially in the Nordic countries, and it has been adopted by famous starchitects, in primis Frank O. Gehry, the extremely famous creator of works like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

Thanks to A-Patina Grau, it is possible to achieve the same chromatic effect as galvanization with a pre-painting treatment that gives the base product a functional and highly prized look, while at the same time representing a valid alternative to heavy galvanized steel plates.
