In the enterprises that are still hesitant to change paint powder, we suspect that a considerable proportion of customers have prejudices about the surface visual effect that powder can achieve. Can the powder make the same variable color as the paint? The same realistic visual effect? Since you have such doubts, you may as well go to the recent window and curtain wall exhibition and furniture exhibition, and you will get a certain and positive answer!
Because you will see with your own eyes that they are not wood, nor stone, nor fur, but powder coated:
Yes, powder is not the poor color and texture in your inherent impression. It grows at a stunning speed. With transfer printing technology, it can make a variety of realistic and beautiful appearance on the metal surface (as above), and thus achieve the true fashion of aluminum doors and windows and metal furniture. In recent two years, this application has been particularly sought after by the Chinese market.
Combination of powder and transfer process
With the development of technology, the heat transfer printing process can print almost all patterns on the primer of powder coating, making its surface vividly show the appearance of another material. For example, the most common wood grain in the domestic market, you can find it in outdoor aluminum seats, company filing cabinets, scenic guardrails and other scenes. Even if you check it closely, your eyes can't tell the difference between it and real wood. This is the perfect combination of powder and transfer technology.
