Polycolor : photosensitive anodized aluminum for color plates

Polycolor : resistance of anodized aluminum, sharpness of reproduction by a controlled sensitive layer, easy and fast processing

Polycolor: the solution for color production of anodized aluminum plates.

Polycolor is made of an open pore aluminum plate coated with a UV sensitive layer. Ink, manually applied, penetrates into the pores. To complete process,  plate is  immersed in a boiling solution  to seal   the pores of the extremely resistant oxide layer.

Image, trapped in the anodized layer of Polycolor, is made impermeable to acids, mold, humidity, temperature variations,  corrosive atmospheres and UV.

Everything that can be photographed online or in halftone can be reproduced with absolute fidelity,  Polycolor plate is very precise, securing exceptional quality.

Independent laboratories have specified durability of Polycolor in terms of resistance to sea spray, UV, corrosion and many chemicals.  Polycolor guarantees  a long lasting marking.
