Alumicolor signWhy ?

The process, used to create colored aluminum signage,  is an exclusive patent-pending technology developed by Matthews International.  The process opens the pores of an anodized aluminum plate, roughening the walls of these pores so that highly stable dyes can be printed into (not on) the anodic layer of the aluminum.

A thermo-chemical sealing process ‘locks in’ the dyes and the final result is an image of remarkable clarity and durability. The technology, like colored metal photo, has applications limited only by our imagination.

Big order or small, your investment in color metal imaging will stand the test of time.
