VeroMetal® MouldProtect is an innovative metal coating developed for Carbon- and Glasfiber reinforced plastic moulds. MouldProtect consist up to 95 % of metal powders. MouldProtect is specially developed to realize a very low coefficient of thermal expansion. The product shows very high dimensional stability over a range of temperatures. A mixture of special metal powder and other components is resulting in a cold liquid composite metal. After the drying process the surfaces show similar properties as cast metal. As a matter of fact: it is real metal.
VeroMetal® MouldProtect can easily be sprayed with a conventional paint spray-gun. Once an item is coated with VeroMetal® the produced surface takes on all the characteristics of high-grade metals concerning impact resistance and abrasion. Compared to the previous plastic coatings systems, VeroMetal® MouldProtect has a much better edge strength and abrasion resistance. The coated VeroMetal® MouldProtect moulds have much longer service life compared to the conventional moulds with pure plastic coating. When compared with galvanic coatings the VeroMetal® MouldProtect layers are much less expensive, looks, feels, and acts like hot-cast metal, because it is up to 95 percent m
