The secret of Metalier technology
The secret of Metalier liquid metal technology is quite simply the binders. They are the critical ingredient that allows for the metal powders to be applied to their chosen substrate and are the result of years of ongoing research and development by Metalier International Ltd. Without a Metalier binder you do not have Metalier Coatings decorative metal system.
There are three types of binders available:
This binder has been formulated for strength and durability with an almost unlimited life span when used for interior applications and 25 years + when used outdoors.
It is the ideal binder to use when surface hardness is vital and can be used for reception desks, desk tops, counter tops, slatwall panels and even floors.
Metalier's High Performance Solvent Binder is a 'must have' ingredient for any of the textured finishes.
Slatwall Panel - Textured Iron with slight rust effect
Metalier’s water based binder is revolutionary and has changed the face of the composite metals industry.
A water based binder allows for easier in-situ applications due to there being no unpleasant smells when applying and quicker drying times.
It will also take a patina much quicker than the solvent version and there are many beautiful effects that can be achieved with Metalier patinas, such as aging, rusting, pearlescent and verdigris.
This water based binder is the ideal choice when a smooth surface is required that doesn't need the same hardness that is achieved with the solvent binder.
Flexible water based binder
Metalier’s Flexible Water based Binder is absolutely fascinating and creates new options within the film and design worlds, all because it is metal that is durable, shiny, labour-saving, clean and most importantly .... flexible.
The Flexible Metal Water Based Binder can be used in design and art, as well as film. It can be used anywhere that movement and flexibility are required.

Each of the binders have their own strengths and the one you choose depends on a number of factors:
whether the surface is vertical or horizontal
will it be subject to heavy use – a bench-top or floor for example?
is the finish to be textured?
is the substrate to be patinated or rusted?
what metal has been chosen?
is it in situ application or a workshop one?
