Bronzed Steel

The Bronzed Steel finish by Lamberti Design has been developed to give a bronzed aspect to steel, instead of using the usual painting options. Its chromatic variations from yellow to red and bronzed, provide more character to a traditionally silver color metal. Bronzed Steel, just like Mahogany Steel and Dark Brown Steel, have been developed to offer chromatic solutions that replicate those of COR-TEN steel. Unlike the latter, where couple of weeks are required to get these colors, Bronzed Steel is ready in a few hours. Furthermore, after stabilization, these finishes do not create and/or release any rust in the form of dripping and/or dusting, as it happens for COR-TEN objects. Carbon steel, commonly known as “Steel”, is an iron-carbon alloy, where the carbon content must not exceed 2%. Steel shows an opaque appearance and is susceptible to corrosion, therefore mechanical and chemical cleaning operations are necessary and preliminary steps that can significantly influence the final surface quality. In addition, the preparation itself can speed up and “standardize” the quality of the final products. Based on these considerations, Lamberti Design has developed a process with several physical-chemical treatments, to obtain a bronzed nuanced finish. At the end, a protective clear coat is applied. This finish is only for indoor applications. If applied outdoor the exposure to the atmospheric agents could cause chromatic variations and may produce some rust. The environmental conditions, the geometry and the shape of the products, combined with the artisanal processes, make the final pieces unique; in fact, any chromatic variations on the final objects compared to photos and samples received, are intrinsic characteristics of the process and not manufacturing defects.

Care and cleaning instructions of metals
Liquids can stain any metal surfaces, therefore we recommend cleaning with a soft slightly damp cloth with neutral soapsuds, and then following using a soft, dry cloth. Do not use abrasive materials, aggressive detergents, acetone, solvents and alcohol to clean metal surfaces.
