CARLSBAD, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2006
From the gleaming dome high atop The Bellagio to the stylized surfaces seen in films such as Batman Begins and Cat in the Hat, LuminOre® composite metals are revolutionizing almost every industry with stunning, cost-efficient metal surfaces which can be applied to almost any substrate. Today, the revolution in decorative and metal surfaces continues to grow — LuminOre Inc. of Carlsbad, Calif., announces it is dramatically expanding its international training and distribution network and awarding exclusive territories in the United States and around the world.
LuminOre's one-of-a-kind, cold-sprayable process — comprised of up to 75 percent metal — has gained world-wide praise by design professionals who have embraced the metallizing process showcased at billion-dollar resorts, such as The Bellagio, the Mirage and the new Wynn Las Vegas. The growing popularity of LuminOre has rapidly increased distribution opportunities, and LuminOre Inc. is now accepting applications for companies seeking to become training/distribution facilities.
LuminOre has received high-profile notoriety with its fantastic special effect results as a cost-effective alternative to chrome plating, foundry metal, metallic paint finishes, plating, vacuum metallizing and other metallizing processes. The patented, cold-sprayable LuminOre process applies a layer of metal over any substrate, in virtually any configuration or design. The spray-on metal looks, feels and acts like hot-cast metal, yet no heat is needed during the application. From foam to fiberglass or plaster to paper, LuminOre metals adhere to most any surface and, once cured, the product possesses many of the exact same characteristics of a cast metal, including texture, luster and heat conductivity. LuminOre is available in aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, iron, nickel-silver, stainless steel and other metals.
"We welcome companies around the world to experience how LuminOre is changing the way the world works with metal. Our composite metals are gaining momentum and notoriety in regions and industries throughout the world, and we are working to establish new training and distribution facilities around the world," says Thomas Valente, president of LuminOre Inc. "Architects, interior designers and fabricators very often require unique applications in metals and metal alloys to achieve a desired look and LuminOre delivers spectacular custom metal finishes efficiently and cost effectively on practically any surface."
One of LuminOre's newest training and distribution centers, Colt Industries of St. Louis was well-known for providing premium decorative surfaces such as Corian® and Zodiaq® and it quickly recognized LuminOre sprayable metals as the next great innovation in surface technologies.
"LuminOre is a revolutionary product that will completely change the Premium Decorative Surface industry, and we have not been as excited about a new product since Dupont came to us with Corian 30 years ago," says Paul Hrebec, president of Colt Industries. "I believe that LuminOre will replace stone and cast metals so often that it will truly become the industry standard. Our sales employees are thrilled to have LuminOre products because they present so many avenues and application possibilities."
LuminoOre is currently awarding exclusive territories to applicants meeting geographic, resource availability and initial purchase requirements. Potential training/distribution facilities should have the ability to establish a local training facility within their exclusive territory. There are no fees to become LuminOre Training/Distribution facility.
"We're very excited about the new distribution opportunities now available throughout the country and abroad," says Valente. "Because of the extreme versatility of LuminOre metals, the applications and potential uses of LuminOre metals are virtually endless. I know our new partnerships will facilitate an ever-increasing number of new and exciting options in metal."
