Metal Kitchen Design – LIQMET Liquid Metal

LIQMET metal coatings are a versatile contribution to metal kitchen design.

The kitchen is the most used room in any house. It is where you lovingly prepare family meals. It stands to reason that if you spend the most time in any room, you should actually like the way it looks.

LIQMET’s liquid metal is a significant component of many metal kitchen design ideas. A backsplash, kitchen door, bench top, or even lights and décor elements can be coated in metal to give a modern look to the kitchen.

Kitchen cabinets fully coated in liquid aluminium represent an industrial style. Combining acrylic paint (black, charcoal or turquoise) and metal (brass or gold) – a modern trend – gives your kitchen an absolutely stunning look.

Imagine how modern and stylish your kitchen can look with some cabinet doors painted in black matt acrylic and some cabinet doors coated with brass in LIQMET “Linish” texture!

Not only metal for kitchen doors

Metal panels are good as backsplash. Some favourites to keep an eye on are stainless steel, copper, aluminium, zinc, brass, and bronze – aged or not.

White kitchen cabinets doors go really well with a platinum backsplash in LIQMET “Modern” texture.

Refrigerators can be a versatile design feature in kitchens. Refrigerator doors can be painted the same colour as the kitchen (providing a wonderful cohesion) or a contrasting colour, each option adding a unique design accent to your kitchen.

If you are not yet ready to renovate your kitchen completely or are not sure about fully metal kitchen doors, you can add metal to lights or wall décor.

Whether your imagination takes you the minimalistic route or leads you to bold vibrant colour and textures, LIQMET allows you to realise your unique metal kitchen design. 

LIQMET finishes can be riotous too

How about 4 varieties of rust? Or vivid green or black patina on copper, bronze or brass? Think about limitless combinations of patterns and metals.

Liquid metal colour range

LIQMET-metal-colours.jpg

LIQMET liquid metal colour range is practically limitless.

The LIQMET liquid metal colour range is huge.  We say it’s practically limitless because during 17 years of creating new and exciting finishes we haven’t got to the end of the possibilities yet. At the moment we have 17 metals and alloys and one non-metal - graphite.

The liquid metal colour range is made up of standard and custom-made colours

The standard LIQMET colour range includes the following colours:  zinc, Tahiti, Aqualloy, rose alloy, aluminium, iron, gold, brass, bronze, antique bronze, pewter, smoked chrome, antique brass, antique copper, platinum, copper and graphite.  Some of our metal colours are natural like a copper. Some colours are alloys. We call these colours our standard range.  All the applicator has to do is mix the Part A – metal with Par B – a catalyst and get spraying or brushing.

Custom-made metals are individually created

In our factory we have created a number of custom-mixed colours.  Most of them are made to match colours for some projects.

One of our major advantage is 2 different viscosities. If spray or brush viscosity alone does not meet your requirement you can mix viscosities together to achieve suitable viscosity.

A huge number of options for metal applications using different colours and viscosities gives many possibilities to create unique beautiful metal finishes.

You can see more of the metals in projects on our website.

We love a challenge and matching metals to a specific brief is something that we love to do.  The vast range of options available are one of the many reasons why you should choose LIQMET coatings.

So contact us if you would like a special metal colour created just for you.  Email or telephone +612 4285 9091 or you could complete the form below.

We love to hear from you.

New Website for LIQMET Liquid Metal

liqmet-metal-finishes.jpg

New website launched. Hooray!

If you have already arrived at this page you will be welcomed by the revamped website. While the older LIQMET site was serving us well, we felt it was time for a fresh look and feel.

Easier for specifiers

The new website is designed to make it easier for architects, designers, specifiers, distributors, and others to generally navigate, order samples, find an applicator, etc.

The website now directs specifiers to a selection of amazing ‘Liquid Metal Finishes’, nested under ‘Liquid Metal Coatings’ along with coatings, colours, and samples.

Loads of inspirational ideas

Our extensive gallery hosts a collection of images providing innovative and inspirational ideas about artistic and practical ways to use LIQMET metal coatings; everything from floors to ceilings, from kitchens to bathrooms, from sculptures to bikes.

More inspiration

If you are looking for inspirational ideas, technical advice, and other useful information, look no further than our ‘Blog’ and downloadable ‘Brochures’ housed under ‘Inspiration’.

Order a sample pot

To give you an opportunity to try the material yourself, we offer a liquid sample pot of a metal and viscosity of your choosing with a coverage of half a square metre or 5.4 square feet. What are you waiting for! Go to the order link nested under ‘Liquid Metal Coatings’ to order your sample right away.

Limit is your imagination

A new addition to the website is ‘Our markets’ which lists potential industries where our metal coatings can be used. These are suggestions based on the amazing results we have already seen. This list is not exhaustive. There are no limits to what our coatings can transform. Let your imagination run wild. We would love to know about the avant-garde you may have dabbled in.

Become a distributor or an applicator

We are growing! It is an exciting time. We want to appeal to your interest and encourage you to become part of the LIQMET Team. Don’t hang back. The process is now described such that it is easy to understand. If you are interested in joining, we would be happy to assist you in any way possible.

 

Every website designer likes to think that their design is the best. We’re no exception. However, you are important for us. We would like to know what about the new website you like and what you don’t. We are good at taking constructive criticism, so that we can continue to improvise.

We would love to hear from you. You can reach us via telephone, email, or the form below.

Fiberglass and Liquid Metal Coatings

 

During last few years we were involved in some projects which required manufacturing fiberglass moulds and products.

The biggest one was Palazzo Versace hotel in Gold Coast, which is still the luxurious hotel in Australia.

 

“Versace Palazzo – the definition of luxury, glamour and sophistication and is the home of Versace, one of the most legendary fashion brands in the world.”

Our job was manufacturing 400 columns and column’s capitals from foam or timber models.

During this project we had some problems and one of them was very complicated 3D shapes of columns and capitals which did not allow to use simple fiberglass moulds. So we had to use rubber moulds together with fiberglass to support rubber. It took us a time but anyway we produced 400 copies of marbleize columns with bronze and gold capitals with Liqmet metal coatings on it.

The last problem suddenly appeared on our horizon. All installed columns had an empty sound. To solve it we had to fill up all of them with a plaster.

Finally, everything looked awesome and never ever can say that there were artificial marble and not solid metal.

Another big project using fiberglass moulds was done for distributors of Toyota in Australia. They presented to their top clients a corporate gift which was a copy of 18th century bronze medallion manufactured by traditional casting in Japan. The price per each was $350.

We made a fiberglass mould from original copy and coated with thin layer of Liqmet bronze coating. The rest was filled up with piece of MDF. As outcome we had a copy of 18th century medallion for $110 each. Our medallions looked better, was touch cold as well but was much lighter than original. During last few years we manufactured around thousands of copies and happy to continue!
