All right! You’ve made the right choice selecting Liberty Aluminum to design and fabricate your aluminum railing, canopy, grille, balcony, louvered shutter, etc. but before your product can be installed it must be powder coated. The RAL color chart is the gold standard among powder coaters.
Powder coating is a dry mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin. It is typically applied using an electrostatic spray gun. The gun imparts a positive charge to the powder particles, and the grounded aluminum attracts the charged particles, ensuring even coverage. Then it is cured, cooled, and inspected for quality.
You get the fun task of choosing the color of the coating. Here are a few things to consider when selecting your perfect shade.
1. Consider the Purpose and Environment:
If it’s for an outdoor application, select a color that complements the surrounding environment and blends well with the landscape. If it’s an indoor product, consider the color scheme of the space where it will be placed. Harmonizing with the surroundings will create a visually pleasing overall aesthetic.
2. Explore Trends and Styles:
Staying up to date with the latest trends in color can help you make an informed decision. Research current design trends and color forecasts to identify popular choices. However, remember that trends can change, and it’s important to choose a color that will stand the test of time. Opting for timeless and classic colors can ensure your aluminum product remains visually appealing for years to come.
