The professional application of paint colours obtains RAL 7016 anthracite grey colours of Aluminium bifolding doors 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.
The paint is electro-statically applied and heated in an oven to ensure the colour is baked onto the material and durable and long-lasting.
