Anodizing ia an electrochemical process that finishes aluminium with a protective,layer, increasing its resistance to corrosion and wear, Rimadesio uses anodized material conforming to the quality brand QUALANOD, ensuring an outstanding level of quality, complying to the standards of the series EN 12373 (aluminium and aluminium alloys- anodic oxidation ) and to any subsequent updates and amendments. Anodized aluminium undergoes a series of controls in order to guarantee high standards of quality in terms of thickness (ISO 2370), quality of adhesion and fastening (EN 12373-4, EN 12373-5, EN 12373-7), resistance to wear (BS 6161-18) and resistance to corrosion (ISO 9227).
Rimadesio uses aluminium painted with epoxy powders in compliance with the law EN 12206-1 and with the brand QUALICOAT, guaranteeing an excellent level of quality. The powder coated aluminium undergoes a series of tests in order to establish its glossiness, the thickness of the layer (EN ISO 2360), adhesion (EN ISO 2409), resistance to indentation (EN ISO 2815), resistance to bending (EN ISO 1519) and resistance to corrosion (Machu test).
Matte lacquer ecolorsystem
Ecolorsystem is the name of the exclusive signature Rimadesio collection of matte lacquers for alluminium. They are eco-friendly products because they only use state of the art water based paints with a low environmental impact, baked at 70C°. The lacquered aluminium has undergone a series of tests in order to check its resistance to changes in temperature, (UNI 9429), resistance to corrosion (UNI EN ISO 9227), resistance to detachment of the lacquering (UNI EN ISO 2409), resistance to deterging agents (EN 12720) and resistance to wear due to the friction and removal of the paint layer.
Brushed metal finish is a new take on aluminium, obtained through painting and brushing processes carried out by hand, giving an idea of a “history”and craftsmanship to the metal..The variations in colour are therefore a characteristic of this exclusive finish.
Polished aluminium is produced by the artisan manufacturing processes of brushing and polishing, carried out using state of the art machinery. At the end of the process the material is finished with a transparent protective layer which guarantees its durability and resistance
The glossy black finish is obtained through several painting phases, using only state of the art water-based paints. The special glossy effect is obtained through the application of specific products through a custom made process using manual equipment
The black nickel aluminium is obtained by a galvanic plating treatment and by polishing. At the end of the process the material is completed with a transparent protective layer which guarantees resistance and durability.
The wood finishes are obtained by using real 0.5mm thick wood. All the products used for coatings (wood shears, polyurethane adhesives, acrylic paints) comply to EN 717 e UNI EN 13986 relating to the emissions of formaldehyde. Veneered wood coverings can undergo colour variations due to light and ageing over time.
