Sublimation on metal is an innovative and unique way to reproduce stunning images that will last for years to come. Using the latest in dye sublimation technology, Colorchrome can create high impact prints for retail stores, corporate offices, trade shows, and so much more. Even better, the optional new “Extended Life” formulation means that our beautiful dye-sublimation metal prints are even suitable for outdoor applications!
During the dye sublimation process, an image is first printed onto a sheet of transfer paper, which is then placed on a specialized, pre-treated piece of metal.We place the metal into our sublimation heat press, which heats the transfer paper to the perfect temperature. This unique process turns the transfer paper directly into a gas and solidifies it into the treated metal.
The result? A lightweight, picture-perfect print that is just as beautiful as it is durable and easy to maintain.
Because the dyes are infused beneath the exterior coating of the metal, these prints are scratch resistant. And forget about fingerprints—a light, microfiber cloth, and household cleaner will leave your artwork looking good as new. This new technology and material have been revolutionary for the healthcare industry due to the surface of the material being so easy to clean.
