To honor this special day, we wanted to show you a project we worked on a while back with John Dennis and Martha Ketterer @SFPublicWorks. This is our standard Interlaken #TreeGrate, modified with a custom-designed #DiaDeLosMuertos motif. #PlaceMaking #ValenciaStreet

It’s #NationalMakeADogsDay, so here at Iron Age, we’d like to give our #officedog, Fred, permission to go ahead and spend the day relaxing on the couch. What’s that, Fred? You do that every day anyway? #DogsLikeCouchesToo

We generally recommend letting our grates age naturally, but we can deliver #InstantGratification too! If bypassing the temporary orange oxidation (a.k.a. #rusty) phase of raw cast iron is preferred for project aesthetics, we offer an eco-friendly solution called #BakedOnOilFinish. We start out with a raw #castiron grate, get it good and rusty, then dip it in #recycled vegetable oil and bake it. The natural oxidation process is still occurring under the surface, but this finish allows for a more smooth, graceful transition to final #patina.

#RustIsBeautiful 🧡🧡🧡🧡
Raw #castiron starts out grey in color, but upon contact with water, a bright orange oxide develops. This loosely adhering layer (a.k.a. #rust) easily washes or wears away, leaving behind a more tightly adhering oxide coating that actually protects the grate from further corrosion. What you end up with is a warm, reddish-brown #patina, similar to any manhole cover in the street.
