▹Wood Grain Sublimation Process
FONNOV ALUMINIUM uses the sublimation process to create wood grain finish on aluminum extrusion profiles. This process is a physical-chemical process, which is the direct transition of a substance from the solid phase to the gas phase. The aluminum profile must be in powder coated or electrophoresis treatment firstly. Cover the aluminum with wood grain paper or heat transfer printing film/paper, then put it into the oven for 170-200℃ backing. Remove the film when time is up. Then you will get a bright wood grain color. This production process can be briefly seen as Pretreatment ➟ Base coat powder coating ➟ Curing ➟ Wrapping woodgrain transfer paper/film ➟ Vacumming ➟ Curing ➟ Tearing transfer paper/film off.
