Our decorative surfaces product range
DECO PRIME® thin aluminium foils help take furniture and kitchen design to the next level. As they are flexible and bendable, they can wrap around edges or bend into hollows, delivering exciting new design opportunities for cabinets, furniture, doors, frames and shelves, or household appliances and electronic devices. Adding character to any space, the foils can also deliver either a soft, or metallic touch.
A near infinite colour palette
The standard colour palette for DECO PRIME® ultra-tough foils includes dark bronze, brass, light bronze, stainless steel, natural, silver and grey. A new range of colourways is also being worked on at present. Custom colours are available on request, offering designers a near infinite colour palette.
Adhesion to multiple surfaces
The foils come with a pre-treatment for adhesion to a range of base materials, including ABS, PVC and other plastics. (Primers for HPL applications are in the final development stage and will be available in the second half of 2022).
Samples of DECO PRIME® coloured thin aluminium foils are available on request to Alanod.
Coloured anodised surfaces
We have perfected an advanced process for integrating coloured pigments during the anodising process. This results in a highly durable and stable coloured surface without affecting the mechanical or chemical properties of the substrate material or the ability to create a matt, gloss or brushed-effect surface finish.
We’re able to offer a full palette of standard colours as well as blend a specific colour to match your design or corporate requirements. Products for external applications are provided with a comprehensive 20-year guarantee.
Clear and coloured lacquer systems
We use a specially developed opaque or translucent lacquer to protect the surface properties and finish of our coated metal materials for decorative applications. This ensures that each product delivers optimal long-term performance, with the surface colour and finish remaining as attractive after many years as it was when first installed.
Products for external applications are provided with a comprehensive 20-year guarantee.
A choice of finishes
We can provide products with a stainless steel, copper or coloured finish, with high-gloss and matt surfaces, and a choice of clear and coloured lacquers. These are available with one or two-sided primers, forming an adhesive layer in composite constructions such as high or continuous pressure laminates (HPL or CPL) or aluminium and plastic hybrid parts.
