Specialty Surfaces Named as Newest Distributor in the Expanding LuminOre Network

Now bringing composite metal coatings to architects and interior designers in the Evergreen State, LuminOre Inc. proudly announces that it has named Specialty Surfaces Inc. of Seattle as the official LuminOre® distributor for the State of Washington.

Specialty Surfaces Inc. is the newest distributor in the expanding LuminOre network, and it will be providing LuminOre's patented, sprayable metal coatings to applicators and dealers throughout the state. In addition, Specialty Surfaces will create a proprietary line of LuminOre countertops and decorative tile as well as other diverse, decorative products.

"LuminOre is a revolutionary product that is completely changing the way architects and designers work with metal, and we're very excited to bring LuminOre composite metal coatings to Washington," says Kirk Derby, president of Specialty Surfaces Inc., who has 30 years experience in the construction and design industries. "LuminOre is a perfect product for Washington. We have one of the world's richest and most diverse environments in our state, and LuminOre coatings are 100 percent environmentally friendly which is a huge advantage over other coatings and finishing processes still on the market."

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 one-of-a-kind 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.

"Specialty Surfaces Inc. is a great addition to our distribution network, and we're very happy to work with them in making LuminOre metals available to the architects, designers, fabricators and other businesses in Washington," says Tom Valente, founder and president of LuminOre Inc. "Companies that have traditionally used cast or forged metal can now apply LuminOre composite metals, achieve greater, more detailed decorative results at a fraction of the weight and cost."
