Using Liquid Metal as a Surface Coating

Liquid metal serves as a real metal veneer applied using our binders to suspend for cold spraying. The binder is pivotal, anchoring the metal powders to the surface and creating a firm, wear-resistant coating. The metal powders dictate the ultimate finish, providing a surface that retains all the characteristics of the metal. Combining a binder, metal powder, thinner, and a catalyst, we spray onto the desired surface. Post-curing, the metal surface is meticulously treated to develop your selected effect, whether it be a polish, patina, or another unique treatment. Our capabilities extend to crafting a myriad of metal-effect finishes with options like gold, brass, titanium, and aluminium.
