BARONTINI’S FINISH PROCESSES STAND FOR QUALITY AND BEAUTY
The term metallization is used to define the sublimation and condensation (deposit) of a thin metal film on a substratum at a low pressure (vacuum) which allows the metal molecules move from an evaporation source to a surface to be treated without passing through air and other gas particles.
The most common industrial metallization version is the sublimation and deposit of an aluminum coat on a polymer object, generally prepared with a levelling and insulating previous primer treatment to increase the adhesion of the following metal coats and transparent finishes.
THE PRIMER IMPROVES THE PROCESS IN THREE DIFFERENT WAYS:
- Heat insulation
- Functional interface which let the following coats adhere.
The coating of aluminum and other metals aim essentially to make the object be functional and beautiful. The finishing phase is extremely important because a protection against mechanical deterioration and oxidation of the metal layers is coated, and this is the last step of a coating cycle in which a heavy multi-strata layer is created.
THE ADVANTAGESOF METALLIZATION:
low-temperature and eco-friendly process
efficiency and high productivity in the work system
The UV metallization process exceeds thermal metallization only in the beauty of the processed pieces, an essential element in cosmetics, which is the main field of application.
The pieces are metallized individually and, in the end of each step they are dried in a UV lamp in order to have a shinier and polished final effect. With UV metallization, the products are qualitatively higher than others that are produced with the traditional method.
The phases of UV metallization are basically the same of thermal metallization:
UV METALLIZATION ADVANTAGES:
Resistance to chemical reagents like creams, perfumes, etc…
Hi-tech machines are used in order to have an high final aesthetic quality
Resistance to degrading agents
Time optimization during production process
EACH SUPPORT FOR EACH APPLICATION IS TAILOR-MADE: WE TREAT PLASTICS, GLASS AND METAL, OPTIMIZING EACH WORKING OUTOPUT
Color is the soul of an object: it enhances and outlines the shapes and determines the target. A color represents communication, style and elegance and may be the strategic strong point which makes the difference.
This is why today more and more importance is employed given to technological research of products, raw materials and industrial design.
Barontini srl has been building up considerable innovative experience in order to face new demands in a more and more demanding market.
Such innovations have been originating excellent quality standards: in the preparation of products, through the making of accurate tests to verify whether the support, the piece and the lacquer fit with each other; in the application, through industrialized technologies to get high quantities, regularity and finish repetitiveness on the product; right quality - price balance.
Today the lacquering field offers a wide range of effects and products and Barontini, thanks to its flexibility, is able to use them all from the most common to the most refined finish: from one-pack coating, water-based or solvent-based bi-component coatings, polished, matt, specular reflection, embossed, soft touch effects, up to the most innovative solutions.
