Cold spray metal coating – choose any substrate

Metalier is a cold spray metal coating. Sometimes it’s good to get back to basics and explain exactly what Metalier Liquid Metal is and can do.

First – because it’s cold it can be applied to almost any substrate even the sensitive ones. Think polystyrene for example as well as the obvious candidates like wood, ceramics, mdf and fibreglass. The flexible coating can be applied to fabric and cloths of all types including leather. It won’t melt or damage the substrate.

Second – no heat is part of the curing process unless you are in a real hurry and using the HP Binder. This cures in between 12-24 hours without any assistance at all. But, as I say, if you are in rush you can shorten the process to 2-3 hours with the help of infra-red lamps. The water-based and flexible binders cure in about 4 hours and they don’t like to be heated.  They dry by evaporation and heat can cause them to crack if you hurry them along too fast.

No baking and no ovens

So there’s no baking and no ovens, no need for heat protection for your workers. We were highly amused by one photograph that one of the competition had on their website. No names, of course, and they’ve since taken it down. It was however a picture of a guy all done up in the heat protective gear with what looked to me like welding gear. There was even a spark coming from the work. Who did they think they were kidding?

Because its cold, Metalier’s cold spray metal coating can be easily used in in situ applications. Read the pages about our binders, solvent high performance, water-based and flexible to see which binder suits your application. And you read it here first. We are about to launch a fourth type of binder. So watch this space.
