What Is Aluminum Wood Grain Finish?

Procedure for Applied Finishing of Aluminum to Wood

A heat transfer technique is used to produce the woodgrain finish on aluminium. This process is based on the physical reaction that causes the inks to transition from a solid state to a gas state and back to a solid state. In order to obtain the woodgrain finish on aluminium, a heat transfer method is utilized. At the right temperature and pressure, the pigment inks are transferred from the paper support into the synthetic layer of powder coating, therefore enshrining the original colour and location inside it.

The Steps in Making an Aluminum Wood Grain Finish Are As Follows:

  • Our aluminium substrate is coated with a powder coat, which is then baked to a certain temperature in a controlled oven.
  • After waiting for the heat transfer inks to cool, a plastic envelope is used to apply the woodgrain ink, which is then smoothed and vacuumed to eliminate any air bubbles.
  • The transfer components may be heated to the correct temperature to provide a strong final bond in outdoor settings.
  • In the end, the ink patterns in their plastic encasements evaporate, leaving behind a woodgrain finish that is consistent and blends seamlessly into the powder coat.

Advantages of Using an Aluminum Finish With a Wood Grain

In contrast to real wood, which requires maintenance and care, the wood grain finish on the aluminium profile is a product that has a much longer lifespan, is much easier to maintain and clean, and does not need any form of maintenance at all. It can withstand high temperatures, acids, high levels of humidity, salt, and detergents, and it is unaffected by UV radiation. It has a high degree of tolerance for detergents. As a direct result of this, it is an excellent choice for usage in a variety of building applications in residential and commercial settings, both inside and outdoors.

Mark it for presentability.

The fact that wood grain wood finish aluminum may be used for both indoor and outdoor applications is the material’s most significant benefit. The metal, the packing layer, and the adhesive have all been put through rigorous testing to assure that they will remain effective over time.

Extremely resistant to the formation of fades

When looking for alternatives to wood, one factor that should not be overlooked is how well the paint will hold its color. Many designers chose to stain the wood to make it appear like metal in order to prevent the natural greying process that wood goes through. Our wood veneer aluminum extrusion has been shown to be three times more resistant to fading than the other wood grain powder coatings on the market, according to studies conducted over extended periods of time using a weather simulator.

The Application of a Wood Grain Finish on Aluminum

  1. Constructing outdoor canopies and walls of the outside
  2. Decoration of the ceiling and walls of an interior space
  3. A coffee shop and an upscale business club
  4. Plazas, stadiums, museums.
  5. The theatre and the convention center
  6. The construction of aluminum curtain walls, column beams, balconies, partition decoration, outdoor decoration, advertising signs, vehicles, furniture, exhibition stands, instrument enclosures, subway cars, and other similar items. Aluminum veneer that has been carved has great fundamental properties as well as excellent thermal insulation performance. The metal board with the carvings may provide a high level of insulation against the temperature shifts that occur on the surface of the outside wall.
