Sublimation is a dying practice to combine the aesthetics of wood or other materials, as concrete or copper, with aluminum profiles resulting in unique aesthetics. The production process is the same as the one of powder coatings with two extra steps between the initial base coating and curing:
a) the application of a Heat-Transfer Film by vacuum (plastic film carrying the desired effect printed with special inks) on the painted surface of the profiles, and
b) the Heat-Transfer of the inks into the coating layer of the profiles.
- Aesthetics: Unique aesthetics that is often required in traditional settlements and applications in the countryside
- Color Stability: all options of the new Alumil sublimation color guide options use Superdurable Class 2 powders as a base. Therefore, color and gloss degradation due to sun’s radiation is minimum
- Ease of Maintenance: Simple rinsing or mild soap and water cleaning will restore a sublimated surface to its original appearance
