Apodis (LBBGL)
Light Brown Bronze Clear Gloss


Apodis is a glossy light bronze finish which adds depth and opulence when combined with dark timbers, marbles, stark white finishes or limed pale timbers. Whether applied to stainless, mild steel or aluminium, Astor can match all substrates. The bespoke nature of Apodis and all bronze finishes means we can match similar finishes or items from overseas and recreate natural aged brass and bronzes onto cheaper, larger or stronger materials. Conditions Of Use For external use, aluminium & mild steel substrates to be specified as “Duplex Apodis”.  Apodis is a decorative soft finish which is protected with a gloss lacquer. Astor clearcoat is a baked automotive 2K which should be treated as such; no harsh abrasives, no harsh chemicals. To maintain the integrity of finish, parts should not be cut or drilled after plating as this leaves the base metal exposed to environmental degradation and we will not warrant our finish under these circumstances.


Can be applied to any metal including aluminium, brass, stainless steel & mild steel. Often specified for retail, handrails, doorware, signage, joinery details, furniture, lighting, tapware, panels & in an oiled finish for exterior use which continues to age naturally.
