Landmark MetalCoat announced the launch of a new website (www.landmarkmetalcoat.com) offering comprehensive information on the company’s metalcoating technology, reported to give a variety of surface types the performance and appearance properties of solid cast metal.
The website provides user-friendly navigation, in-depth information on metalcoat technology, and up-to-date news on the variety of benefits that metalcoatings are bringing to the marine, medical, energy, and other markets, the company says.
Produced from a formulation of resins and metals, metalcoats can be cold-sprayed over any substrate, in practically any configuration or design, and deliver a surface that looks and feels like cast metal, but at lower cost and weight, the company says. Metalcoats are also electrically non-conductive of electricity, non-corrosive, and can be finished, sanded, polished, brushed, machined, or given a patina as is done with forged or cast metal.
Jeff Smullen, Landmark MetalCoat’s co-owner, said the website “will help to introduce the cost-saving benefits of metalcoat technology to industry professionals around the world.” He added that “by improving the dissemination of information through the website and other media, we can more thoroughly communicate how metalcoats can improve the bottom line for many industries.”
Landmark, based in Temecula, Calif., was established in 1996, with products initially used for decorative applications such as surfaces of tile and bathroom fixtures. The company says it has continued to develop its materials and processes to expand its reach to a variety of markets that include protective materials for aircraft and wind-turbine blades and marine applications, including protective hull coatings.
