A nuanced, high-performance painting process


1. GALVANISED STEEL
Métalunic Design uses G90 galvanized steel, a durable raw material of superior quality.

2. BASE COAT
(applied to the steel only)
Following a zinc phosphate chemical treatment, a base coat is applied to protect the galvanized steel substrate against corrosion.

3. INK
Ink is applied by using patterned rollers to create different wood grains. This is the moment the magic happens, creating unique colours just for you!

4. CLEAR PROTECTIVE TOP COAT
The application of a transparent protective layer is essential to give the product good abrasion resistance and counter the long-term effect of U.V. rays and discoloration.

5. OVEN-BAKED PAINT
Once the multiple applications are completed, the coated material is baked at high temperatures for a hard-wearing, durable finish.

6. PROTECTIVE FILM
During packaging, a blue protective film is applied to every sheet of metal siding. This important step prevents any damage during the manufacturing, handling and installation of the product.
