LUXYCLAD IS A SOPHISTICATED BLEND OF UV STABLE INKS SUBLIMATED INTO HYPER DURABLE POWDER COATINGS. APPLIED TO ARCHITECTURAL GRADE EXTRUDED ALUMINUM, THIS PROCESS PRODUCES THE HIGHEST QUALITY BUILDING MATERIALS.
Luxyclad exclusively uses extruded aluminum in the production of our products; a light weight, strong, and corrosion resistant material. Aluminum extruding is the technique used to transform aluminum alloy into definitive, cross-sectional profiles. By pushing the alloy through intricate and complex dies, the metal becomes a rigid and durable profile, suitable for a wide range of applications. The extrusion process maximizes the potential of aluminium’s unique
physical characteristics, specifically malleability and ductility. Its ductility allows the material to be easily extruded, while its malleability allows it to be pressed and formed into complex shapes. At one third the density and stiffness of steel, the resulting material offers exceptional strength and stability, making it the most reliable choice of exterior grade architectural products available.
Extruded aluminum also creates tight
tolerances, resulting in a consistent
and complete system of interlocking components. Luxyclad is made from 70% recycled content and is completely recyclable at the end the material's life span. With its low-cost recyclability, high rate of scrap recovery, domestic manufacturing processes, and the relative abundance of its ore, Luxyclad is both economically and environmentally sustainable.
Luxyclad employs powder coating technology; an environmentally
friendly process in which free-flowing, thermoset powder material, rather than a liquid suspension, is applied to the surfaces of our materials. Once the powder is applied, the material enters an oven to melt and fuse the aluminum and powder together, forming a smooth, hard finish. This process produces a
long-lasting and hyper durable finish that is both protective and decorative. Demonstrating more resistance to impact, moisture, chemicals, and extreme weather than most liquid coatings of similar thickness, powder coating offers greater protection from scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and general weathering and wear. Powder coated finishes act as
electrical insulators that can withstand thousands of hours of salt spray contact. Even after being subjected to extreme environments, the colour remains brilliant and vibrant. This durability makes powder coatings well-suited for abrasive, high traffic, or high use areas, in addition to diminishing the need for future coating touch-ups, maintenance, or replacement.
Following the powder coating process, Luxyclad utilizes state of the art sublimation technology. Films containing UV-stable inks with various replicated wood patterns are wrapped around the powder coated materials. Heat and pressure is applied, causing the inks to undergo a phase change from a solid directly into a gas. This change allows for the inks to
be transferred directly into the powder-coating, causing the inks to become part of the finish itself, rather than sitting on top of the material like traditional printing methods. Once the UV stable inks are embedded into the powder coated surface, these finishes now have all the mechanical benefits from the powder coating while also gaining the aesthetic advantages from
sublimation. The sophisticated formula of extruded aluminum, powder coating, and sublimated finishes has undoubtedly resulted in the future of building materials, which go further to reach even higher demanding levels of quality, aesthetic, performance, and sustainability.
HIGH STRENGTH TO WEIGHT RATIO
Luxyclad's unique combination of high strength and low weight makes it ideal for applications like exterior and interior facades and ceilings.
RESISTANCE TO ICE & THAWING
Luxyclad's corrosion resistance is enhanced in extremely cold conditions, making it ideal for use in snow and ice without fear of accelerated breakdown due to contact with moisture.
Luyxclad is very consistent in both dimension and thickness, minimizing the need for field corrections, guarantees rigid stability, and allows for easy installation.
HIGH UV RESISTANCE
Luxyclad high-performance finishes are AAMA 2604/05 rated, making them highly resistant to ultra violet (UV) rays which result in a long lasting, highly aesthetic product.
Luxyclad finishes are robust and protect against parallel-linear exertions of force. Increased scratch resistance results in better protection against weathering, chemicals and general wear.
Luxyclad's super durable finishes and high tensile strength have incredible impact resistance, making it ideal for high traffic areas such as commercial buildings and retail applications.
Luxyclad is manufacturered from 70% recycled content and finished with hyper durable powder coatings which contain zero volatile organic compounds (VOC's). Our products are completely recyclable at the end of their life cycle.
& NON TOXIC
Class A fire rated, Luxyclad is non-combustible and does not produce toxic fumes even at extremely high temperatures.
Luxyclad is made from architectural grade aluminum, sealed to offer extremely high weatherability and corrosion resistance even in the most extreme environments.
