Reprochrome is a totally bespoke service offering digital reproduction of any digital image onto an aluminium surface using sublimation technology. The process utilises a high definition decorative powder coating of aluminium with subsequent print decoration using a sublimation process.
The key feature of the ‘sublimation’ technology is that this is not just purely a surface finish but is ‘through the depth’ of the coating to a depth of 80 micron creating a highly durable and ‘white line’ scratch resistant product.
Reprochrome lends itself well to the production of woodgrain type products and the polyurethane coating ensures that if the image takes a light scuff or scratch it will not be visible as a white line due to depth of penetration and inks. Numerous bespoke products can be achieved replicating; stone, marble, granite or alternatively a bespoke custom digital image.
Suitable for applications onto pre-formed aluminium and galvanised steel sheet profiles/ extrusions, the coating will remain in good condition and free from failure for a period of 10 years from coating.
Supported by a 10 year SUBLICOAT warranty, the sublimation fully meets the provisions of BS6496 (1984) and BS6397 (1984) including subsequent revisions.
