Thermal Metal Finishes - molten metal application
Artistic Metals specialises in thermal spray finishing (metal coating), a process of encapsulating virtually any substrate in molten metal. This process is commonly used for anti-corrosion and engineering purposes but Artistic Metals by use of our additional finishing process, achieves beautiful aesthetic finishes which are used by interior designers and architects for commercial contracts. Our 100% metal finishes (metal veneers) are suitable for large or small commercial contracts and can be used indoors and out.
AM finishes can be substantially more cost effective compared to solid metal constructions. For example an MDF-made reception desk, finished in antique bronze would actually mimic the look and feel of a real solid bronze desk because unlike bronze coloured paint our finish is actually real bronze. The AM range works especially well on metal but other possible substrates include MDF, wood, plaster, concrete, fibreglass, and hardboard, some types of plastic and even thick paper or card.
Our metal finishes are suitable for outdoors, on buildings, within public spaces and garden environments, but an appropriate weather-durable substrate e.g. steel or concrete would be necessary. The application has both a practical and aesthetic use and demonstrates great durability.
Areas of use include
Finishing on display or exhibition stands, permanent reception desks and kiosks.
Door and wall panelling and fittings within museums.
Entrance control within banks and other public buildings.
Shop sign-work, fittings and for finishing balustrading.
Garden sculpture, ornament and planters.

AM finishes are aesthetically striking yet also practical. There are multiple uses and benefits gained by using this metal encasing process.
