decorative paints


MAS FERRO is a satin finish for the interior with an aesthetic effect of an iron oxide material. It has been developed with the most advanced technologies to provide durability, washability and environment-friendly paints. This product is created to give new decorative and protective solutions for the interior and exterior.

It is ideal to use as a final coat for classic style decoration finish on wall surfaces. It protects steel gates and fences and similar iron fittings against climate aggressiveness. Also for wood and plastics.

To obtain the best aesthetic effect and quality results, we suggest following our application recommendations.

New Concrete Walls:
The wall must be fully dry without an alkaline substance and it should be smooth. Otherwise, scrape with PVA Wallfiller, the sand with 180 grit sandpaper. Apply one (1) coat of MAS Masonry Primer prior to the application of Mastex Premium by stainless steel trowel, sponge/brush or roller to obtain a classical effect and top coated with MAS Ferro by brush or roller.

New Wood:
Application of Undercoat Enamel, apply one (1) coat of MAS PVA Wallfiller (if necessary) and sand it with sandpaper to obtain a smooth finish. Apply one or two (1-2) coats of MAS Ferro with an interval of 5 – 6 hours at room temperature.

Old Wood, Old Iron:
(Previously painted with alkyds and P.U. paints). Smoothen with 280 – 300 grit sandpaper to facilitate the adhesion of alkyd-based primer and then the MAS Ferro.

New Iron:
Smoothen the surface with sandpaper. Remove traces of oil, grease and other contaminants. Apply one (1) coat of Standard Deruster. Apply one (1) coat of alkyd-based primer prior to the application of two (2) coats of MAS Ferro.

Remove grease and smooth the surface and apply a coat of adequate primer. Apply the desired coat of MAS Ferro to create a unique and classical decorative finish.
