Powdertech Wood Finish - PWF

Powdertech Wood Finish offers warmth texture and superior performance finishes for metallic substrates to rival the use of hard wood. It can be applied to most metallic substrates including aluminium, galvanized steel, cast metals and stainless steel.  Over three years in development by Powdertech, it was launched in 2000.

Hardwood is scarce, costly and difficult to recycle and replace whereas metals, especially aluminium, can be recycled many times.  The structural properties of metal and the aesthetics of PWF combine to replace components that would have been made in wood.

PWF matches natural wood with variation in colour, grain density and grain pattern to replicate the variation that would be expected in wood. As with real wood there is no repeat of the pattern and no two pieces will ever be the same.
