If you are considering a raw, industrial vibe for your next design project, check out the new Rust-Look aluminium finishes from DECO.

Highly versatile in application from edgy urban designs to classic country chic, DECO Australia’s Rust-Look range provides a realistic, weathered steel finish to an aluminium profile. The aluminium finish is available in four natural looking rust colours. DECO’s sublimated imaging technology also means there is no colour runoff or staining.

Perfect for replicating weathered steel façades or decorative rusted panels, DECO’s Rust-Look finish can be applied to most aluminium profiles, helping building designers to achieve custom lightweight designs easily. For instance, rust-look batten walls for creative screening, weathered flat sheet panels for comprehensive covering, or rusted edging for a more subtle design accent are some of the design possibilities in any building project.  

According to DECO Australia general manager Meika Doonan, the new rust-look finishes have been developed to give architects and designers an opportunity to extend their designs further.

“When the finish is applied to lightweight aluminium, whether DECO’s profiles or any other extrusions, the design opportunities are endless. There really is the ability to create some truly inspiring architecture with these new rust-look finishes. Imagine the next generation of designer windows and doors featuring these fabulous and innovative finishes.”

The Rust-Look aluminium finish is created with DECO’s Super Durable powdercoating and a rust effect image that is baked into the coating to create the hardwearing and realistic rusted finish suitable for both exterior and interior applications. Non-combustible, UV-resistant, marine grade and certified to Australian Standard 3715 for architectural powdercoating, all of DECO’s aluminium finishes are made in Australia for Australian conditions.

Part of the DecoVogue collection, Rust-Look joins the range’s popular concrete, marble and granite finishes.
