K5: Rust, without the problems

OCM's developed K5: Rustic Metal Finishes to provide an innovative, painted solution to the problems commonly associated with natural, weathering sheet metal. K5 offers a full range of PVDF paint options that replicate the appearance of naturally weathering metals, such as steel, copper, and zinc. While rusted metal has become widely used in architecture, it comes with many dangers and risks. Rusting metals can corrode, leading to leaks. K5's PVDF coating provides lasting protection to the aluminum or steel substrate. Natural rust can drip from roofs and run down walls, staining the surrounding materials and sidewalks. With K5 there is no rust, so there is no staining.

Natural metals can also be unpredictable. Natural metals will age to a variety of colors depending on their environment and atmosphere, making it difficult to achieve the desired results. OCM can precisely replicate K5 colors and can even create custom variations, providing control and predictability. K5 Rustic Metal Finishes have been widely used in commercial, institutional, and residential building applications including corrugated and standing-seam roofing, wall cladding, column covers, doors, ceiling panels, soffits, and window mullions. K5: Rustic Metal Finishes are processed exclusively on Old Country Millwork’s coil coating line in Los Angeles, California. They can be supplied in coil or flat sheets, both of which can be supplied with removable protective film if required.

"Go rustic with K5 for any sheet metal application, including roofing and wall panels."
