Comparison of Solid wood, Wood transfer and PVC / wood veneer coated aluminum conduit
Wood grain building aluminum profile could be an excellent substitute for solid wood materials. Its significant advantages are:
1. Environmental protection. Aluminum products having wood texture with good simulation effect could replace the wood decorative materials, so that we protect the trees and achieve the energy saving and environmental protection.
2. Light weight and easy operation. Not too many workers are needed in the installation. Just take the aluminum frames to the place and the installation can be completed quickly. The labor costs are greatly reduced.
3. Fire resistant, corrosion resistant, moisture resistant, and the hardness is better than the solid wood.
So in order to achieve the wood grain effect of building aluminum profiles, there can be different technological processes. Such as:
Wood transfer technology :
First coat the background of the aluminum tube to the required background color, then use a very thin chemical film to cover the aluminum tube's background color through the heat shrink principle.
PVC coated aluminum conduit / Solid wood veneer coated aluminum tube:
The technology is to paste the solid wood veneer or PVC film on the aluminum tubes with the hot melt adhesive PUR imported from Germany.
Both above two processes of wood grain could achieve the function of aluminum wood substitution. The most significant differences in appearance are:
Ø The effect of the wood transfer technology is more flowing on the surface, just like printing. It’s like printing a layer of wood grain on the aluminum tube. The feel and close contact could not replace the solid wood.
Ø Solid wood veneer coated aluminum tube : pasting a layer of real solid wood on the aluminum square tube, has the ability to "fake the truth". Metal and solid inside, same texture as wood on the outside. Furthermore, the cover in wood has no pattern repeat, since real wood is used.
Ø For outdoor use, choose the anti-UV PVC coated aluminum conduit. The anti-UV PVC film is with a PVDF layer on the outside, protecting against the UV rays and is destined for outdoor decoration, with a guarantee up to 30 years.
