Our polyester powder coatings according to the RAL-color system are produced in europe according to the highest standards and deliver a perfect surface result in flow and color. In addition, the paints are specially produced for exterior use in facade quality and are Qualicoat and/or GSB certified. After 10 years, the color stability and gloss retention are still within the standard range. Note: All RAL pearl colors and fluorescent colors can be found in the special colors category.
What is the RAL-System?
RAL-system colors are standardized color tones. The system comprises a wide color spectrum and therefore offers a great variety. The RAL color system was introduced in 1927 and has since been a crucial standard in color technology. It consists of over 200 standardized color tones, ensuring high color accuracy and comparability. These color tones are used in various applications such as construction, furniture and plastic industry, graphic and printing industry, and many others. RAL system is recognized worldwide and widely used as a reference for color selection and determination.
How do gloss levels differ?
In general, "The glossy surface has a stronger color intensity than a matte or finely textured surface because light is scattered on a matte, textured surface."
The "smooth high gloss" and "smooth gloss" gloss grades give surfaces a smooth finish with an attractive gloss level of 80-95%. It is best suited for surfaces in good condition. It is not ideal for heavily rusted and oxidized surfaces, as the imperfections will show on a smooth and reflective surface and detract from the appearance.
The "smooth satin" and "smooth matte" is low maintenance and works well for accents on the motorcycle. It is smooth and less susceptible to scratching than a dull matte. It works well for lightly rusted and oxidized surfaces because it hides small pits and imperfections and handles material outgassing better than a gloss finish.
Scratches and dents caused by hard off-road use are more inconspicuous on a matte finish than on a smooth finish, and can be easily brushed over with a matte touch-up pencil without being noticeable. Especially on heavily rusted and oxidized parts, the "fine texture matte" finish can still save them, as it hides pits and imperfections well.
What`s the meaning of Super Durable?
For particularly demanding projects, we recommend our high-quality "Super Durable" high-gloss colors. These powder coatings offer particularly high weather resistance due to their chemically modified composition. The powder is also available as a clear coat and is highly recommended for high-quality surfaces. The unique chemical composition of the "Super Durable" powder coatings provides long-lasting protection against environmental factors such as UV radiation, moisture, and temperature fluctuations. This makes it an ideal choice for demanding outdoor applications and for surfaces that require frequent cleaning.
