CENTRIA is giving architects, specifiers and contractors a new tool to deliver durability and aesthetics with the launch of the Impressions coating system. A pre-finished decorative paint system, Impressions is engineered specifically for steel and aluminum substrates.
Impressions provides scratch resistance; dirt and stain resistance; and protection from the sun, rain and other natural elements. It is applicable to a number of stainless steel and aluminum substrates.
The coating system simulates natural finishes, including woods and specialty metals. Substrates treated with Impressions also require less maintenance than those natural materials, which generates cost savings. In addition, Impressions adheres more readily to the metal and delivers greater color consistency, which results in a uniform appearance throughout the life of the building.
Impressions coatings begin with the substrate. A Color Base Coat is added followed by fluoropolymer ink. Those layers are sealed with a clear topcoat made of resins for thermal stability and chemical resistance. The total coating thickness is 1.1 mils (0.0011 inch) on the substrate.
Impressions is available in 12 patterns and colors.
