Powder coating manufacturers Linetec (Wausau, WI) and Decoral System USA (Coral Springs, FL) have teamed up to offer a variety of wood grain finishes made for architectural aluminum products.

The finishes are recommended for both interior surfaces, such as window frames, door panels, column covers, shutters, furnishings and hardware, and exterior applications, such as garage doors, fencing and soffits, Linetec says.

Linetec says the finishes offer the look of natural wood without the maintenance.

“In our industry, we are seeing the use of real wood in applications like curtainwall mullions and interior window surfaces,” said Jon Close, Linetec’s vice president of sales and marketing. “The Decoral process gives us the ability to offer a similar look at less cost.”

The finishes meet the American Architectural Manufacturers Association standards AAMA 2604-13 for color uniformity, specular gloss, dry film hardness and adhesion, as well as resistance to impact, chemicals, detergents, scratches, corrosion, salt spray and fading due to ultraviolet light, the manufacturer notes.

Also, the coatings are fire-retardant, and resistant to water and humidity. Unlike natural wood, the finished aluminum products do not swell, rot, warp or attract insects, Linetec says.

Moreover, the finishes utilize a powder coat process that does not emit VOCs.
