DecoSlat aluminium slats is put through a specialised powder coating process for the DecoWood finish.

About the Process
The process to achieve the natural timber look uses the DecoWood powder coat finish.
First the DecoSlat profile is pre-treated in a series of stages known as the Pre-Treatment Process. The Pre-Treament process is what gives the aluminium its corrosion protection.
Then we powder coat the DecoSlat profile in our specially formulated sublimation powder coating, using a base colour to suit the timber look you have selected.
After the DecoSlat profile is powder coated, we then transfer photo graphic images of real timber grain directly into the powder coating under controlled conditions of heat and pressure. This process is also known as ‘sublimation’ or ‘photo-imaging’.
