Sublimation: The New Face of Powder Coating

Powder Coating is one of the toughest finishes available on the market today. Because the process is so much more green than wet coatings, its popularity has grown exponentially, not only overseas, but in North America as well. Many architects and designers are used to the traditional RAL's, solid colours, veins and metallic's offered in the powder coating industry. These are the finishes we so often see on things like patio furniture, auto parts, appliances, heavy duty equipment and store fixtures. However, times are changing, the possibility for life like, faux finishes has emerged and it's all thanks to sublimation.

Decora uses a sublimation process to add beautiful finishes such as assorted granite, marbles, wood-tones, camouflages and many other realistic finishes to extruded aluminum, furniture, exterior decking products, lighting, and other ferrous/non ferrous products. We have been successful in helping many of our customers attain new revenue streams and add new finishing options to their existing product lines. Dye sublimation over powder coating allows for a coating life that can exceed 20 years in the elements. This system is growing in popularity and now can be seen on products used in cladding systems, fencing, decking, railings, furniture, heating fixtures, bbqs and others. The possibilities for our finishes are endless and can help your product stand out from the competitors as well as give your product a coating that will allow you to sleep at night knowing its powder coated tough.

Our sublimated finishes provide the same outdoor durability as conventional powder coating making it ideal for architectural and interior products and is compatible with aluminum and steel substrates.
