Service Description

Students will learn the process of Cold Metallization and begin the process of becoming certified in MIDAS Metall®. The MIDAS Metall® application involves mixing metal powder with a water-based binder that cures. After sanding and polishing, the metal powder will become a solid metal skin coating the surface. The class begins with a lecture and demonstration of the MIDAS Metall® product. The students will then create their textured sample, which they will take with them after the class. Students will mix and apply the MIDAS Metall® materials to develop their unique sample in their metal color of choice. Students will watch a full demonstration of the sanding and polishing process that creates a fully polished metal surface. They will get hands-on practice in sanding and polishing during the class on class-provided samples. They will receive instructor feedback to ensure proper polishing technique and complete understanding and skill. Students will take their cured samples home after class to polish. After completing the samples, students will submit a photo of their sample and receive feedback from the instructor. All students will receive full Applicator Authorization of MIDAS Metall® after successful sample submission. Due to safety restrictions with polishing, students will polish their samples independently and submit a photo of their polished samples for review and critique. After a successful sample submission, students will become fully Authorized Applicators of MIDAS Metall®. Material Information: Aluminum panel 8.5 x 11 Samples: 4 Tools and Materials Provided: Materials, substrate, application tools, and sanding/polishing equipment.
