Paper Airplanes – Metalier Flexible Binder

Paper Airplanes made with Metalier iron in our flexible binder have been used as a marketing teaser by our UK distributors, Granlyn Specialist Coatings since they first joined the team. That was 5 years ago now so that’s a lot of architects and designers who have a paper airplane on their desks!

Paper Airplanes made with Metalier iron are magnetic

A really clever part of the teaser is that if you add a little magnet to the surface you’ve told the person who opens the envelope that they’re holding something made or real metal. And you’ve told them that it is metal that will bend and can be folded.

Metal Monkey Design has made a video

Metal Monkey Design are a certified Metalier applicator in the UK. They’ve made this cute little video about how to make a paper airplane. Watch it here. It demonstrates beautifully how we have fun with Metalier and it also demonstrates the unique qualities of our flexible liquid metal coating.

You can apply metal to paper.

The coating bends and folds.

It’s light so it can fly.

Metalier flexible liquid metal was formulated primarily for the film and larp industries at the behest of world-renown studios, Weta Workshop. It was designed particularly to be a durable coating to adhere to latex armour. Weta needed the coating to be especially durable so that it wouldn’t get damaged when actors fall off horses. Finally it needed to be a “clean” coating too. There’s nothing worse than the hero snuggling up to a heroine for a wee kiss and getting dirt all over her white robes, negligee or whatever. It’s been used by the Royal Shakespeare Company too – we’re very proud of these feathers in the Metalier cap.
