The LuminOre® Metalizing Process
Neokraft is fully licensed to apply the LuminOre® patented metalizing process to any surface of any material imaginable! Signs of all types can now have the look, feel and finish of real metal, with a number of genuine patina finishes.
A thin layer of composite metal is applied seamlessly over any substrate in virtually any conceivable configuration or design, adhering to foam, plastic, gypsum, wood, metal, fiberglass, plaster, ceramics, concrete, terracotta, as well as unusual surfaces like cardboard or paper products and other materials.
Neokraft Signs recently designed, fabricated and installed a five-foot-diameter seal for the new City of Brewer Public Safety building in Brewer, Maine. If made of copper, this seal would have weighed nearly 1,000 pounds and cost tax-payers tens of thousands of dollars for building reinforcment to carry the load. Neokraft produced the seal from urethane foam, applying a LuminOre® Copper metal finish and true copper patina post-processing. The end result was a magnificent, five-foot-diameter copper seal that weighed only 65 pounds!

Signage at The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, utilized both weathered and non-weathered LuminOre® finishing. The LuminOre® copper patina seen here is real and will continue to weather just as solid copper would. The LuminOre® polished copper finish elements can be clear-coated to preserve appearance, or left uncoated allowing natural long-term oxidation processes to take place.
