Lean on us - Fremantle Maritime Museum

When the star of the show is the Australia II, the best one can hope for is a cameo appearance in a supporting role. At the Fremantle Maritime Museum in Western Australia, Resene Enamacryl Metallic has been assigned the somewhat unusual task of holding up a treasured piece of Australian sporting memorabilia.

New interior boat supports and a raised walkway have been coated in a system of Resene Galvo-Prime acrylic galvanised iron primer topcoated in Resene Enamacryl Metallic and an overglaze of Resene Multishield+ to give a durable easy clean metallic finish.

The structural steel was initially overcoated with another product; however the metallic finish proved sufficiently bewitching to snake its way in dazzling hues of Resene Silver Aluminium, Resene Aluminium, Resene Blast Grey and Resene Starship across the main gallery.

The reflective Resene metallic finish is the perfect companion to the sleek hull of the star feature, Australia II and many more West Australian maritime treasures.
