In its grand opening, the new Wynn Las Vegas unveiled architectural artistry, elegance and some spectacular effects made possible by LuminOre Inc., specialists in composite metals.

This week’s grand opening of the new $2.7 billion Wynn Las Vegas -- built by Steve Wynn -- has completely energized Las Vegas, and the new mega-resort’s architectural artistry and elegant sophistication has literally been the talk of the town. Creating an environment that insiders say ‘must be experienced to be understood,’ the Wynn Resorts chairman has incorporated some spectacular effects with help from LuminOre Inc. of Vista, Calif., specialists in composite metal.

”We're very excited to be a part of the Wynn Las Vegas experience,” says Tom Valente, founder and president of LuminOre Inc. “Mr. Wynn has produced some of the world’s most famous hotel-casinos ever built, including the Mirage, Treasure Island and The Bellagio, and his designers very often require unique applications in metals and metal alloys to achieve a desired look or environment. LuminOre’s patented metalizing process has revolutionized the way the world works with metal, and our clients are able to deliver a custom metal finish efficiently and cost effectively on practically any surface.”

In addition to its use by billion-dollar resorts such as the Wynn Las Vegas and The Bellagio, motion picture set designers and special effect companies, LuminOre’s patented, sprayable metal finishes offer extensive industrial and marine applications. LuminOre’s composite metals spray onto virtually any surface using conventional spray equipment, and are available in aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, nickel-silver, stainless steel, X-metal and Z3. The end result is a protective coating that withstands the harshest of environments, is non-conductive of electricity and anti-corrosive.

”LuminOre’s patented cold-sprayable process allows a thin layer of metal to be applied over any substrate, in virtually any configuration or design,” explains Terry Gould, president of LuminOre Industrial & Marine Coatings Inc., a licensee of LuminOre which specializes in marine and industrial applications. “LuminOre looks, feels and acts like hot-cast metal, yet no heat is needed. From foam to fiberglass or plaster to paper, the LuminOre process adheres to most any surface other than skin and water. Once cured, the product has many of the characteristics of a cast metal, including texture, luster and heat conductivity.”

According to Gould, LuminOre’s benefits goes far beyond Las Vegas and the world of sophisticated design elements. Testing over the past several years, he explains, has shown LuminOre to be an excellent deterrent to marine organisms attaching themselves to hulls or structures beneath the water line.

“In the Great Lakes where there is a very large Zebra Mussel problem,” says Gould, “we’ve had test plates in the water protected by LuminOre material. After five years, not a single footprint of Zebra attachment has been recorded.”

The LuminOre process has made incredible contributions in a variety of diverse industries, and Valente concludes that many of its uses are still being discovered. From metal artistry in Vegas to fine furniture finishes to protective coatings in harsh marine environments, the innovative breakthrough of LuminOre’s cold-metalizing process is actually changing the way architects, designers and industrial engineers approach problem-solving with metals.
