THE BURNISHING PROCESS

The prestige of brass comes from its look and high resistance to corrosion making it the ideal material for exquisite architecture. The special alloy used has properties which provide greater strength and a slight difference in patina is noticeable in corners which further highlights the handcrafted authenticity of Brombal’s artisanship.

THE PAINTING PROCESS

At Brombal, our finishing process not only helps to express the style of each project, but it protects the metal as needed. This is why our painting is so crucial allowing for maximum durability. Brombal’s new painting plant represents our company’s philosophy of freedom to create and quest for perfection.

LIQUID PAINTING

Liquid spray painting is a technique in which a robotic arm sprays a coating (paint, ink, varnish) through the air onto the metal surface using spray guns. This process takes place inside a pressure-controlled room which uses large filters to create a dust/particle free environment for a perfect finish. The frames are then heated to dry and harden the paint as well as provide a smooth, consistent factory finish.

THE OPTIONS

-Distinctive Metals Collection: a hand applied specialty finish.
-Ral and Texture Paiting: a very wide range of colors and textures.

DISTINCTIVE METALS COLLECTION

The Distinctive Metals Collection are a premium finish which are more complex than standard liquid paintings. Unlike a normal liquid painting with uniform color and a smooth surface, our custom finishes have varied shades of color, a textured surface, and aesthetic effects that can imitate other materials such as copper, bronze, iron, concrete, etc.

Each special finish is the result of a long-studied process that results in the unique painted finish. Distinctive Metals Collection are available both Standard or C5M for badly polluted areas and/or coastal environments.

STANDARD PAINTINGS

Thickness: from 220 to 280 μm (micrometer).
All the RAL & Texture Standard painting processes have four initial steps which guarantee very high adhesion between the base metal and the paint.

PAINT PROCESS:
1. Blasting all profile surfaces with micro stainless steel beads
(or other accessories that require painting).
Results of process:
– Surface becomes rough, allowing primer and paint to grip better to the steel;
– Cleaning dirt and contaminants from the steel surface.
2. Application of zinc basecoat:
a – Zinc Epoxy Primer, or;
b – Zinc Thermal Metalization Spray
Results of process:
– Prevents rust and corrosion.
3. Application of Epoxy Adhesian Primer.
Results of process:
– Seals the zinc coating;
– Prepares the surface making a strong bond for the finish coat.
4.The frames and accessories are then painted which vary between
finishes in coating thickness.
Results of process:
– Durable long-lasting protective coatings;
– Flexibility in color choice with smooth or textured surface.

Note: Stainless Steel does not require zinc coating described in step 2.

COASTAL AND POLLUTION RESISTANT

Thickness: from 300 to 360 μm (micrometer).
All the C5M RAL & Texture paintings have four initial steps which guarantee a very high adhesion between the base metal and the paint providing a very high resistance against marine environment and/or very polluted areas.

(or other accessories that require painting).
