What is LIQMET liquid metal coating?
Liqmet is an unique unequalled decorative metal coating system which was created as a result of 3 years research and development. LIQMET is Australian made product and a registered trade mark. This system replaced traditional casting for sculpture and other 3D object manufacturing. Our metal coating technology allows to use 3D models made from cheap substrates like timber, plastic, MDF and even foam. Only 1mm of LIQMET cold-spray decorative metal coating applied onto of any substrate gives a look of solid cast metal.
Another goal what we wanted to achieve was to avoid dangerous goods. It took us 6 months to develop and test different polymers. As a result we don’t use polyester resin in our manufacturing. Our decorative metal coatings don’t have any smell and can be applied without special safety equipment.
Liqmet decorative metal coating is 2 pack system contains an actual metal in liquid form and a hardener.
Part A – a liquid metal
The LIQMET decorative metal system is available in the following metals and alloys:
Zinc - Smoked Chrome
Platinum - Gold
Antique Bronze - Rose Alloy
Bronze - “Tahiti“
Antique Copper - Aqualloy
Copper - Brass
Aluminium - Antique Brass
Iron - Graphite - non-metal
Part B – a hardener.
Only 10% of the hardener required for 1 kg/2.20 pounds of Part A. 10% of the hardener added to the metal allows to polymerize (dry) material during 16-24 hours at room temperature.
All 16 metals and alloys and a graphite manufactured in 2 viscosities: SPRAY and BRUSH. Different viscosities allow to apply metal with unlimited thickness from 0.25 mm up to 10 cm or more without settling and cracks.
Also we manufacture a fire-retardant range of decorative metal coatings for a surfaces where very high temperatures involved.
LIQMET metal coatings can be applied on variety of substrates like:
Liqmet decorative metals are supplied in 3 different sizes: small (1kg), medium (6 kg) and large (11 kg).
Liqmet decorative metal system has many benefits:
1. Looks and feels like a solid metal
2. No any smell
3. No polyester resin
4. We use Australian ingredients which proofed by Australia made logo.
5. Mostly made from recycling materials
6. Solvent free VOC - 0
7. Metals can be mixed together to create new metal colour
9. Does not shrink after application
10. UV resistant
11. Doesn’t conduct electricity
12. All metal finishes and alloys, except iron, are non-magnetic
13. Light-weight and cost-effective
14. Applied to almost any substrates
During 15 years on the market thousand jobs were done around the world which prove an outstanding quality of Liqmet decorative metal coating system.
One of the best examples of durability and quality of LIQMET metal coating system are applications on motorbikes and cars. Motorbikes and cars surfaces are experiencing big weather and human impact. We provide a warranty for 30 years.
