Application of On-site/Off-site Patinations
Classic and contemporary patinations may be applied to Brass, Gilding Metal, PB102 and Cast Bronze. To deliver your project/scheme successfully there may be a requirement to combine on site and off site patinations, i.e. from lift openings, skirting, and architraves to reception desks and entrances.

Production of Samples
Application of Modern Lacquers
We have formulated our lacquers to complement our patinations for an enduring look. They are low in polyurethane allowing light to pass through them giving an incredible natural feel.
Surveys and Conditions Reports
Bronze, stainless steel, granite and marble all require some form of on-going maintenance through cleaning or waxing. We provide assistance at every stage through a programme tailored to your requirements.
Research and Development
With an extensive library and through personal knowledge and experience we have developed new ways of achieving traditional finishes involving both modern systems and a modern approach. We are expert artisans working from a modern facility.
DOFF and JOS Cleaning
Both systems are manufactured by Stonehealth Ltd. DOFF is a superheated water cleaning system which can be used for the cleaning of bronze without compromise to the substrate or original patina. JOS is a gentle yet effective swirling vortex cleaning system. Choosing calcite as our medium in the right hands we are able to pinpoint and remove corrosion from the alloy without unacceptable metal loss from the substrate. Our skilled workers have thousands of hours of experience. Contact us for help.
