How Is ChromaLuxe Made?
It all starts in proprietary software that preps the image file. Once the file is ready, it is first printed on paper with dye-sublimation inks. In the meantime, the printing tech prepares the metal surface of the aluminum panel, then places the print over the aluminum panel and applies a thermal protective layer to the paper print. The magic happens when a heated press transfers the ink directly onto the aluminum.
The reveled result is a brilliant, high-definition image in a glossy or matte finish.
Due to the way the dye-sublimation coating adheres to the metal, the surface of ChromaLuxe prints is perfectly sealed, leaving an impenetrable surface.
High-Def Design with ChromaLuxe Aluminum Panels
Dye-sublimation printing is the key to the vibrant, high-definition look of ChromaLuxe prints. Dye-sublimation is a way of transferring ink directly into the medium it is being printed on. Heat vaporizes the ink and it reforms on the substrate — which in the case of ChromaLuxe, is an aluminum panel. This results in the true-to-design brilliance the metal prints are known for.
Paired with the intensely high-definition images that ChromaLuxe is capable of creating is the modern, frameless look of the aluminum panels. When used with a museum back to hang the print, the sharp angles of the panel stand out from the mounting surface for an impressive and bold artistic presence.
Catastrophe and AZ Weather Resistant
You may not frequently think about the elements or disaster when you’re looking to print art, but you should. Canvas, HD photo paper, and acrylic prints are vulnerable to damage from moisture and flame. The sun’s powerful UV rays can also wreak havoc on more delicate prints.
So what are you to do when you want to hang a fine art print in an area that may come into contact with sun, water, or fire?
Opt for metal, particularly ChromaLuxe. The polymer coating on ChromaLuxe prints means there is no texture to the surface or openings to the image below. Water, chemicals, or smoke cannot get through to damage. In the event of a disaster dirtying the print, cleaning with industrial supplies is safe.
ChromaLuxe lets Art Get Big and Bold
ChromaLuxe lets printers go wild in the scope of creating a design. In fact, ArtisanHD produces ChromaLuxe prints up to 8 feet wide!
But those prints are restricted to a large rectangle. Using routers, printing techs can cut ChromaLuxe panels into custom shapes. This makes it an ideal medium for signage that is unique and memorable.
Art You Can Interact With
Thanks to its durable nature and easy-to-clean surface, ChromaLuxe panels are the type of art that you can interact with. Fingerprints won’t stain it and being wet won’t tear it apart. Point to it, lean against it, hang and rehang it a dozen times – ChromaLuxe can take it.
And it can take the cleaning it requires once it’s been interacted with. Wipe away fingerprints and germs without any concern that disinfectants will damage the image. Cleaners are safe to use on ChromaLuxe prints, which makes them ideal for locations like hospitals or hotels that need to clean them up every now and again.
