Aluminium TimberMatch RangeLife like wood grain colours that are also textured to feel like real wood
TimberMatch is a unique coating that can be applied to extruded aluminium.
It uses sublimation, which is a process whereby a substance changes from a solid state directly into gas. This process is used for powder coating and involves the desired image being first printed onto a special paper or film. This film or paper is then held hard against a special powder coating using vacuum. The image is then transferred under controlled conditions of heat and pressure, directly into the powder coating. The sublimation ink penetrates the full depth of the powder coating, and the image becomes an integral part of the surface.
This gives it the appearance and texture of timber, without the ongoing maintenance and oiling that timber requires. Because it is applied over the top of the anodising finish, it maintains and even enhances the durability of the aluminium.
7 super reasons for using TimberMatch:
