WHAT IS LIQMET LIQUID METAL COATING?
LIQMET is an unique and unequalled decorative metal coating system, the result of three years of research and development. LIQMET is an Australian made product and a registered trade mark. This system replaces traditional casting for sculptures and other kinds 3D-object manufacturing. Our metal coating technology allows the use of 3D models made from cheap substrates like timber, plastic, MDF and even foam. Only 1mm of LIQMET cold-spray decorative metal coating applied onto any substrate gives a solid cast metal look.
Another goal we wanted to achieve was to avoid dangerous materials. It took us six months to develop and test different polymers. As a result, we don’t use polyester resin in our manufacturing process. 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 containing a 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
Antique Bronze– Rose Alloy
Antique Copper– Aqualloy
Aluminium– Antique Brass
Iron– Graphite – non – metal
PART B – A HARDENER.Only 10% of the hardener required for 1kg/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.
