LuxArt® design composite:

with ceramic content for greater surface hardness.
See a more detailed view and information of our products on mouseover.

With 35% ceramic content and organic matrix, LuxArt® combines the processing benefits of Luxon® with more hardness and abrasion resistance. Its composition makes LuxArt® even better suited for creative designs with opaque surfaces. The design material is blue light curing and has a surface hardness of 210 N / mm².

  • Expressive, attractive colour items can be achieved
  • Distinctive surface hardness of 210 N/mm²
  • Particularly efficient cartridge application
  • Material flows nicely thanks to thixotropic materials
  • Quick and systematic light curing
  • Less colour and UV-resistant than HyCeram
  • Can be polished brightly or to a high gloss
  • Very glossy surfaces are also possible without polishing.
    (Curing in the CeraLux light curing unit with nitrogen)
  • Durable in galvanising baths

The LuxArt® Material:

All properties summarized.

LuxArt® is a light-curing composite material based on high-quality, microfine ground ceramics and modern, 3D cross-linked polymers. The single-component material and can be applied directly from the cartridge.

 

With this basic technology, translucent or opaque coloured items with high surface quality and a high level of durability can be achieved. The treatment is structured and efficient.

Physical properties

Ceramic content: 35 % GEW

Microhardness: 210 N/mm²

Density: 1.4

Thermostability

Thermally stable up to 160 °C > 10 hours

Thermally stable up to 200 °C < 1 hour

Standards

Meets REACH, RoHS standards


Curing depths:

Light-curing material with different layer thicknesses.

Cure light-curing materials like LuxArt® with a light exposure process to different depths depending on the colour. To achieve the desired thickness, it may be necessary to apply several layers and systematically cure each of them.

 

Note: It is not necessary to apply Link or Bond between individual layers of LuxArt®.

Exposure to light for 1 minute with the TwinLux Dual light curing unit yields the following different colour-specific curing depths:

Optimal processing of LuxArt®.

production and processing explained - step by step.

The processing of LuxArt® follows a clearly defined concept and procedure. In this video we explain, step by step, how this design composite is processed, hardened and finished.

  • After the preparation of the area, sandblast or laser it, and then clean it
  • Apply Link / Bond and secure the bond between Luxart and the metal
  • Cure the bond with TwinLux Dual or in CeraLux
  • Connect the Luxart cartridges to the dosing system and apply the design composite (ATTENTION: please note the different layer thicknesses)
  • Cure the coated items with a suitable TwinLux Dual or CeraLux light unit. .
  • Then continue to work in the cured surface mechanically (smooth down, polish). (provided that it wasn’t cured under nitrogen)
