Colours of Aluminium bifolding doors is obtained by the professional application of paint colours to the surface of the aluminium, called powder coating. The process first conditions the aluminium through a series of acid treatment plants removing all traces of moisture and grease. Every body’s hands have moisture on so handling the metal is done using specialist gloves to ensure the aluminium is not contaminated.
After the material has been cleaned through six different cleaning solutions it is dried and ready for powder coating. The paint is electro-statically applied and heated in an oven to ensure the colour is durable and long lasting.
RAL is the European colour standard system used in architecture, construction and industry. Colours are the industry standard for aluminium coatings. There are over 200 to choose from.
