Corrod Course in London Overview
The Corrod course in London will not only demonstrate, but also teach you how the multi-layers of Corrod should be applied on different surfaces including wood, or MDF boards. Our Corrod course (also called COR-TEN) will enable you to create a stunning contemporary rusted-iron-like design on walls.
On completion of the course you will be able to apply corrod and transform a wide range of surfaces into a corten steel look. You will also be taught how to work with the two different Activators (C and R) and play with the different colours that can be created (yellow or red rust, or a copper oxide look).
Our trademarked Corrod course will enable you to quickly progress from one completed layer to another as each stage will already be prepared for you! This course will be running on one day, as we are confident that it only requires a couple of hours for you to learn the mixing, application, and various finishes that you can create. Please be aware that we don’t teach trowelling skills or how plastering works.
All courses come complete with complimentary lunch each day at a local Italian restaurant that serves homemade English and Italian dishes.

A: We’ve started to supply wall and floor finishes in 2010 and since the very beginning offer flooring products like resins or micro screed on demand, but were never quite happy with the quality and the price / value ratio of the products. We were looking for the right durability, ease of application and the right look from a supplier with the right guarantees and capacity and in 2017 we’ve found it!
Our trademarked method is based on the demand, market requirements and the knowledge of our technicians who have applied thousands of square metres of microcement. Also, our method goes through ALL the steps and not just the decorative coating application, to ensure that you will leave with a complete, 360 degree knowledge and will be able to do any project of any size.
Q: Is there parking available onsite?
A: Yes, there is local free parking in the area and reserved parking behind our showroom.
Q: What’s the closest station and how can I get to you?
A: The closest stations are Golders Green and East Finchley on the Northern Line and you can take the bus 102 from either to get to us. We’re only a few metres from ‘The Market Place’ bus stop.
Q: Do you teach corrod application on walls?
A: Very soon we will be running a new, more extensive course over 3 days! Which will include application on walls, to ensure you are fully comfortable with all aspects of the technique!
Q: Do you offer on-site corrod courses?
