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 we, by way of additional finishing, achieve beautiful aesthetic finishes which are favoured by interior designers and architects for commercial and private contracts. Our 100% metal finishes (metal veneers) are perfect for large or small projects and are suitable for indoors and out.
AM metal finishes can be substantially more cost effective compared to solid metal constructions or casting. For example we can bronze metal coat an MDF-made reception desk and after finishing the end result would actually mimic the look and feel of a solid bronze desk. The AM range works especially well on metal and MDF but other possible substrates include wood, plaster, concrete, fibreglass, and hardboard, some types of plastic and more.
The application has both a practical and aesthetic use and demonstrates great durability. When used on buildings, within public spaces and outdoor environments our finishes are hard wearing and easy to restore should they be damaged by graffiti. Appropriate weather-durable substrates are the best options.
