Given the right treatment, metal can last for generations. Whether it is iron, steel or galvanised/zinc metals, people love the timeless quality that metal brings. Hammerite understands that all types of metal are vulnerable – to water, sunlight, frost, rust and physical damage. All metals need constant protection to keep them structurally strong and looking their best.
