Cold Sprayable Metal

LuminOre® is a patented cold metallizing process that seamlessly applies cold sprayable metal to almost any surface, giving almost any substrate the appearance of being a solid cast metal object without the weight or expense.

LuminOre’s sprayable metal finishes are revolutionizing the way the world works with metal, and they have been embraced by billion-dollar resorts, such as the Wynn Las Vegas and The Bellagio, and provided countless uses in the aesthetic, industrial and marine environments. LuminOre’s composite metals spray onto virtually any surface using conventional HVLP spray equipment. The result is a protective coating that is anti-corrosive, non-conductive of electricity, and withstands the harshest of environments.

"Whether it’s a distinctive dimensional sign, museum exhibit, or office interior, we can achieve magnificent results even on small budgets through our innovative approaches and durable, cost-effective selection of materials, such as LuminOre," says Shelly McMahan, President of Smart Design, a company that has created many metal products that would be too impractical and expensive to produce by traditional castings or forging.

LuminOre Composite Metals are a safe alternative to:

·  paint
·  metallic finishes
·  powder coating
·  plating, metallizing
·  traditional foundry and forged castings


LuminOre® Composite Metals is a green technology, a more environmentally friendly alternative to the toxic effects and by-products of the metal forging and metal plating industrie
