VeroMetal is a metallizing process that applies
cold sprayable metal to almost any surface.
No, it is not a metal paint. It is a cold-sprayable metal composite that mainly consists of real metal.
No, an electroplating process is an electrochemical process. VeroMetal® is a cold-workable metal composite that can be applied to many different types of surfaces, such as laminate flooring, melamine, wood, plastic, plaster, fibreglass, calcerous materials, pottery, terracotta, cardboard, paper, ceramics, concrete, foam, porcelain, glass, MDF and metal.
No, powder coating involves baking the coating onto the substrate. VeroMetal® is applied without heat by spraying, rolling, by hand or pouring. VeroMetal® does not need to be exposed to heat to cure.
Yes, if the right substrate is used and VeroMetal® is applied correctly. ASTM testing revealed no perceptible degradation, which is equivalent to a lifespan of 30 years.
No, most installers already have the required equipment, e.g. an HVLP spray system, as standard.
No, VeroMetal® can be applied in any thickness you require.
It can be applied in a single spray pass.
We recommend testing new substrates. To date, we have not discovered any substrates that cannot be successfully coated.
Obviously this depends on the operator’s skills, the substrate and the shape of the object, however 1 – 1.5 m2/kg is typical.
Yes, we offer a special training course for installers. This is a two-day, hands-on training course where you learn how to mix, apply and finish VeroMetal® correctly.
No, VeroMetal® is not a metal paint; it does not shrink.
That is correct. VeroMetal® is applied in a cold process.
Yes, VeroMetal® can be applied on flexible surfaces.
No, VeroMetal® does not conduct electricity.
