TURNING WOOD TO GOLD, ENKEBOLL DESIGNS® EMBRACES THE LOST ART OF ALCHEMYReviving the long lost art of Alchemy, that ancient practice of changing base metals, like lead into precious material like gold, Enkeboll launches a new Collection of Alchemized© architectural elements.
Enketallics™, a proprietary, cold spray process is employed to transform each unfinished wood or resin element into a stunning Alchemized accent piece. The Alchemizing process can be applied to a variety of Enkeboll products, including moldings, corbels, rosettes and balusters.
Enketallic™ is the perfect alternative to chrome plating, foundry metal, metallic paint finishes, metal plating, vacuum metallizing, and other metallic processes. Because Enketallic™ is not a metal paint, it will not shrink due to evaporation. Enketallics are durable enough to be used in outdoor applications when properly applied to the approved substrate.
Enketallic™ is a great green alternative to metal casting due to the use of an exclusive cold spray process which uses no heat for curing or drying, so there is no heat impact on the substrate or surrounding environment. Due to the nature of the process there is no off-gassing in the final product.
The Park Avenue and Tribeca Collection as well as the classic Acanthus Collection are available in all nine Enketallic Alchemized finishes, including gold, bronze, white bronze, nickel silver, copper, copper verde, blacken iron and rusted iron as well as special finishes upon request.
