Wood into metal... the alchemist dream - Wellington Airport
Resene has successfully turned wood into metal in Wellington Airport's $42m terminal. Tough and good looking is a rare combination. But the joinery, ceilings and air handling units crafted from medium density fibre boards in the main concourse spaces have been coated in Resene metallic finishes.
The Resene system comprises Resene Automotive Ultrafil 645 two pack primer followed by Resene Imperite IF 503 tinted to Resene Gold and Resene Imperite IF 502 clear satin for maximum cleanability. "There is no other metallic paint finish on the market like it", says spray Painting Contractor Andrew Slee. "The Imperite IF 503 metallic finishes have the texture and look of blasted steel which can also be achieved in a range of other colours. They are beautiful".
