Amron Architectural has researched a number of different secondary finish processes that work well with expanded mesh, perforated sheet, woven wire and gratings. Different materials are subject to varying local environments, such as plain steel rusting in wet conditions, therefore it is essential that appropriate finishes for interior and exterior applications should be considered for your project. Secondary finishes can be applied to help achieve the desired colour, reflectivity, or where corrosion resistance characteristics are required.
Powdercoating - Anomatch
Anomatch products have been specially designed to represent architectural anodising on both aluminium and galvanized steel. Anodised aluminium has a reputation for its "living" quality with a metallic radiance. Anomatch creates the same effect with additional benefits.
Powdercoating - Evolution
Developed to reflect metallic oxidation and natural change The Evolution Collection uses polyester resin systems to achieve excellent exterior durability and gloss retention. Evolution finishes can be applied to aluminium, mild steel, galvanized steel and most metal substrates. Evolution gives a long-lasting & hard wearing finish.
Powdercoating - Landscape
The Landscape Collection is designed to replicate natural stone finishes found around the world. It uses polyester resin systems to achieve excellent exterior durability, colour and gloss retention for architectural applications. You may want your project to complement the surrounding landscape or present a striking contrast.
Powdercoating - Standard
Powder coating is a cost effective way to add an unlimited range of colors to wire mesh. Powder coating uses an electrostatic charge to attract a fluidized powder evenly across all surfaces of the wire mesh. The electrostatic charge holds the pigmented powder until it passes through an oven where it melts and adheres permanently to the wire mesh. After curing, the wire mesh has a colorful and durable coating that adds to the desired aesthetic of the project.
Decorative electroplating is an electrodeposition process where a thin layer of brass, nickel, chrome, or copper is deposited on the wire mesh surface in a tank-dipped procedure. A decorative antique plated finish can really bring out the texture of a woven wire mesh in ways that other coatings cannot. The thin layer of metal does not mask the detail of the wire mesh but rather highlights it. The antique plated finish process introduces a dark oxide layer over top of the bright plated alloy.
Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is a highly controlled process that utilizes a vacuum chamber to create and deposit metallic vapor onto a target surface. Using various titanium nitride, carbide and dioxide compounds, a vast range of brilliant metallic color can be created and applied to stainless steel wire mesh. Banker Wire mesh can be enhanced with a true, lasting architectural finish in colors like Champagne, Gunmetal, Rose Gold, Royal Gold and many more.
