Dryvit Ferros: Decorative Finish and Primer

Dryvit Ferros finish provides a modern and elegant look for either interior or exterior applications. The final appearance replicates the well-known effect of rusting metal or steel with distinct oxidations. In addition to its unique appearance, Dryvit Ferros finish is water-based and has hydrophobic qualities that repel liquids and contaminants. Ferros finish forms a breathable film having excellent resistance to abrasion and long term weathering. Questions? Contact Us.
