Sublimation: Veneer Wood Alternative

The Hassles of Veneer Wood

Manufacturers and fabricators alike, we understand that at some point you must have experienced the hassles of veneer wood! The thin-layered veneer lifting and peeling, only to reveal the metal underneath. Manufacturing a durable, long lasting product that is beautiful can prove to be a difficult and expensive task.


But we have another option for you.


Taking pride in finding alternatives and creative solutions, our ultra-durable, powder-coated, faux finishes allow you to decorate your aluminum and steel furniture to look like wood, saving you the hassle of veneer applications.

You can have the beauty of wood with the durability of aluminum or steel.

Made Easy For You

Decora Powder Coatings is dedicated to bringing you what you need, including understanding the importance of functional aesthetic. Our wood-grain coatings are a one step process for our customers, because there is no need to glue, contact cement, or wait around for anything to dry. You ship us the product, and we apply the wood grain directly onto the metal, simple as that. Our finishes will improve the look, life-span and over all quality of your products - desks, cabinets, chairs, trims and so much more. Sublimation is changing the game - there is no need to cut and glue like an arts and crafts project. Our sublimation puts the design directly into the paint - and there's no need to worry about material expanding or contracting, causing peeling, weathering, or maintenance again.

Quality Vs. Cost... Why Not Both?!

Don't let exterior appearances fool you - when it comes to selling furniture, the base materials are important! Common veneer base materials like particle board or cheap wood don't last - aluminum and steel materials will. Choosing our application gives you maximum quality at a great cost, so you don't need to sacrifice one over the other, and your customer will be happier knowing they will get a long, maintenance free, life out of your products.
