1What is Natina?
Natina Solution is an environmentally-safe and low maintenance color solution for rock, concrete and galvanized steel. Natina naturally reacts with each of these materials, which creates an earthy, brown finish. Natina application is completed by our professionally trained team for your commercial and industrial construction project.
2How does Natina differ from a paint, pigment or stain?
Natina is a reactive color treatment and does not contain any harsh or toxic resins, pigments or carriers found in paints and stains. Natina contains carefully selected natural elements that react with minerals in rock, concrete, and galvanized steel to create a rustic, earthy brown finish.
3How does Natina differ from weathering steel?
There are several differences between them and here are the main ones. Natina has natural, mottled brown hues, whereas weathered steel has a uniform, often reddish, color. Also, the lifetime costs are lower since Natina plus hot-dip galvanized metals have strong corrosion protection as opposed to weathering steel's continued rusting. Finally Natina does not drip, discolor or bleed on surfaces nearly as much as weathering steel.
4What color does Natina create on galvanized metal or steel?
Natina Steel Solution creates a varied and deep brown finish on galvanized steel. This color is primarily dark brown with medium brown hues throughout. Our steel finish is an affordable and low maintenance solution.
5What are the brown colors Natina creates on rock and concrete?
Natina Rock and Concrete Solution create an array of earthy brown hues that can range from tan to mahogany based on the formula amount. Our rock and concrete finish is affordable low maintenance.
6Does Natina alter or damage the galvanized layer?
Natina Steel Solution maintains the protective characteristics of galvanized steel and does not change the layer.
7What surfaces can Natina be used on?
Natina is primarily used on rock, concrete and galvanized metal or surfaces including hardware.
8What type of projects does Natina work on?
We work on federal, government, municipal, commercial and industrial projects. At this time, we do not work on individual residential or homeowner projects. We are happy to help answer questions or quote your commercial project. Please call us at 877-762-8462 or email us at sales@natina.com.
9How is Natina applied?
Natina is for professional use only and is applied by our team to ensure proper color and results are achieved.
10Are contractors allowed to apply Natina Steel Solution?
Typically Natina applies all of our solutions at our facility. In very rare cases, we may certify a contractor to apply Natina for a specific project. You must have written approval from Natina to apply the solutions. The certification is only valid for the project(s) noted in the certification and additional approval is required for a different project.
11Is Natina safe to use around plants, water and surrounding wildlife?
Yes, Natina is safe to use around plants and wildlife without any VOCs. It can improve soil nutrient value which benefits surrounding plants, wildlife and aquatic plants.
12Is Natina generally considered safe?
Yes, Natina is a natural product and has been through rigorous environmental testing. Natina is safe to handle and has no VOCs. We recommend using rubber gloves and wearing eye protection when mixing or handling because it can discolor skin and clothing.
13I found dust or residue on the Natina-treated surface. What is this?
Occasionally you will find, what we fondly call Natina dust, a fine powder on the surfaces of Natina-treated material. This residue is non-toxic and will disappear over time. Natina is typically used on utilitarian surfaces (e.g. guardrail, transmission towers, chain-link fence, etc.) and this dust does not affect project outcomes. For decorative features, handrails or façades, please contact info@natina.com to discuss your project scope.
14What is the recommended maintenance for Natina?
Unlike pigment-based paints and stains, Natina is a natural product that is low maintenance. However, as is the case with other products, Natina is still susceptible to physical or chemical abrasion. If, or when, maintenance is required, Natina is relatively easy to use and very safe to handle. We're available to offer customized training and assistance to address your unique requirements and situation. Feel free to contact our team to discuss your project and determine if Natina is the right choice for you.
15Does Natina sell product?
Typically we apply our color solutions and do not sell them. Depending on the project, there can be exceptions (e.g. to support our customer's maintenance operations).

16Could I use Natina for my project on my home?
