The OP never said he/she was doing these shots for commercial purposes, yet it seems that almost everyone who has responded has assumed that advertising or commercial usage is to be the intended use of the photos.
I myself have photographed numerous products just because I wanted to be creative and make cool-looking photos of products, even though I have no affiliations with the manufacturers, and no interest in ever marketing or selling the products or my photos of them.
Anyway, I think that expanded metal could be used effectively as a background for the items the OP is interested in photographing. It gets rusty right away, and he/she could experiment with different looks by using different things behind the expanded metal, such as shiny stainless steel, flat black foam core board, etc.
Here's a link to expanded metal images, in case the OP is not familiar with it:
The photos all show shiny, unrusted metal, although in reality, any time I go to a steel supply yard to buy it, it is generally rather rusty (even though it is brand new, and even though it has never been outside in the weather).
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
