Graphics, images and natural finishes can be embedded on powder-coated surfaces using a new system.

Dlubak Powder Coating & Design has introduced a new custom digital imaging process for steel, glass, aluminum and other substrates.

The process, known as Astral, takes “decorative finishes to the next level” providing a durable, yet vibrant presentation to the substrate, according to the Kittanning, PA manufacturer.

The resulting finish is resistant to abrasion, humidity, corrosion and light, according to the company.

With Astral, the company is able to embed digital images, graphics and natural finishes for signage, shelving, windows, product displays and more, according to the company.

Uses, Features

It is recommended for use in both interior and exterior applications.

The Astral finish is not only a surface application; the image is embedded through the entire thickness of the powder coating. Moreover, the finish is resistant to abrasion, humidity, corrosion, light, and is non-combustible, the company says.

The process is environmentally friendly, utilizing recyclable substrates, transfer medium and water-based inks. Moreover, the company says powder coatings emit zero or near net zero volatile organic compounds (VOC).

So I am guessing the example sign was intentionally applied to look that way, and not just kicked around the shop floor for a month before shipping.

Hello Tom, yes that is correct! We were given that exact image from the client and powder coated it with a base coat then, sublimated the image into the depths of the powder coated finish.
