Aluminium Finish Options

Fusion Facades LandMark Aluminium Rainscreen Cladding Systems are tested to CWCT standards and hold either A1 or A2 Fire Rating.

Powder Coating

Fusion Facades are approved to provide polyester powder coated finishes offered by Axalta, Interpon D, IGP, Valspar and Tiger polyester powders.  Polyester powder coating is an ideal finish for external applications where UV stability and weather resistance are essential, we utilise external architectural grade polyester powders to achieve this.  It remains a popular choice with architects and specifiers due to the spectrum of durable finishes available.  The range of special finishes available has grown dramatically in recent years with textured, metallic and anodic finishes now readily available.  Powder Coating extends the life of the Aluminium as it is harder wearing than traditional painting or spraying with superior coverage being achieved in a single coat.

Anodising

Anodising is the process by which the natural film on aluminium is greatly increased in thickness.

Aluminium metal is on the anodic side of the galvanic series. Its position is similar to zinc and magnesium, ie it is readily oxidised. The oxide on aluminium is naturally corrosion resistant, very hard, abrasion resistant, an insulator and very tenacious. In its natural form the oxide film on aluminium is less than 0.50 microns thick.

Because the naturally occurring film is very thin and attached to a soft ductile metal, it is easily damaged. Building up this coating provides very useful properties for the aluminium surface.

Pre-coated sheet

Our pre-painted aluminium sheets are coil-coated with a Class 1 PVdF flexible paint system.

PVdF has excellent weathering properties, colour-fastness and UV resistance and is the most commonly selected finish for construction, giving long life and a virtually unlimited range of colours.  All sheets have a UV resistant film with directional arrows applied to the painted surface to protect the finish during fabrication and installation.

Our range consists of the most commonly used sizes and gauges and we can offer bespoke sizes, colours and thickness subject to order details.
