Patination Oil

Patination Oil is a white spirit based surface treatment that prevents Lead carbonate from forming on the surface of Lead Sheet and ultimately helps prevent staining to adjacent materials.
Patination Oil
When newly fitted Lead is exposed to rain or moisture it builds up a natural patina in the form of a soluble Lead carbonate. Future exposure to rain can wash the carbonate on to adjacent materials causing staining or discolouration of surrounding building materials.
Patination Oil should be used on Lead roofing, flashings and cladding to give a uniform, attractive appearance where the Lead is visible. It is also necessary when water flowing from the Lead Sheet surface may come into contact with other visible building materials.
  • Prevents the white carbonate that forms on newly fitted Lead from staining adjacent materials

  • Recommended by Lead Sheet Association
