No. The unique coating of the ChromaLuxe metal panels allows prints to be showcased without the need for framing glass or acrylic face-mounting. ChromaLuxe metal prints are scratch-resistant, waterproof, can be touched, and easy to clean.


  1. Dye-sublimation: ChromaLuxe products have a unique dye-sublimation coating that contains no open pores and is resistant to chemicals, bacteria, liquids, and pathogens, so the surface doesn’t trap contaminants. This means germs won’t stay on the surface.
  2. Easy to clean: Cleaning and disinfecting ChromaLuxe prints is as simple as using any commercial glass cleaner with a clean, lint-free cloth. You don’t have to change cleaners or cleaning materials as you go through the building.
  3. Easy to disinfect: Disinfectants can be sprayed on ChromaLuxe surfaces without damaging them or fading the colors, making them easier for customers to clean and maintain over time. Prints that last longer make the finance team happier to reduce replacement costs.
