Exterior metal coating

Exterior metal coating | Metalier Liquid Metal

Metalier is an Exterior Metal Coating.

Metalier’s real metal can be used as an exterior metal coating or an interior one.  It so happens that most of the recent commissions in New Zealand have been interior.   We are, however, just as happy outdoors as we are inside.

The properties of Metalier make it an ideal exterior coating

First – the principal ingredient in Metalier is real metal.  Metals oxidise with age: if not protected they patina or rust.  But they are unaffected by UV which is a huge bonus for outdoor coatings.  Think how many coatings fade and look dull when exposed to the sun.  This just doesn’t happen with Metalier.

We like using the example of a pair of church doors to illustrate this property.   Before Metalier they were varnished wood.  One door was left open most days so people could pop into the building for a quiet time.  The other was closed.  The varnish on door that was open most of the time kept looking good for many years.  The closed door which took the full force of the elements looked like it.  When both doors were closed they looked quite different.

Metalier bronze was applied to the doors.  Now, eight years later they look like the day they were installed.  An excellent in situ uv experiment.

Second – Metalier real metal exterior metal coating is durable.  It lasts for 25 plus years and protected with our nano clear coat, provided the clear coat is not heavily abraided there is no reason why it shouldn’t last 25 years too.  So at 50 years that’s the life expectancy required for most new buildings and structures in New Zealand.

Third – water does not damage Metalier – an essential ingredient for an exterior metal coating.  Metalier has been used in fountains and water features and we currently have a bath in our workshop which is being coated with Mountain Gold polish.  It will look amazing and I promise photos.

Fourth – metal is a beautiful inorganic natural material.  Metalier brings metal to architecture and design in a way that minimises the use of this precious resource.  We are very proud of that.

Contact us here to organize us to coat your new water feature,  the letters outside your house or on your apartment (we’ve just done the numbers for the Vert apartments on Jervois Road, Herne Bay) or for panels or features or maybe a statue.  Metalier can do it all.
