Strong, malleable, adaptable & useful. Iron products were a hero in the toolkit of heritage trades.
Blackened Iron has been treated with a black oxidised finish for corrosive resistance and a beautiful deep rich black lustre. Our iron products are then sealed with a satin or matte gloss lacquer finish for further protection.
Due to the inherent properties of iron, even once lacquered, when exposed to the air, salt & varied climates, oxidisation & patina will occur over time.
The character of metal as it gets marked, changes and ages is beautiful and worth celebrating.
A rub down of your product with Penetrol on a rag will help to maintain the black colouration and lustre as well as treat any surface rust that may appear over time particularly in salty environments.
Embrace the changing surface of this wonderful & time honoured metal. Regular maintenance with Penetrol will be your iron product's best friend!
