Due to its worldwide acceptance and recognition, we have adopted the RAL color matching system. Every leading paint manufacturer has adopted the RAL color system, making it easier for the entire lighting industry to have better color matching when using different component suppliers to create a lighting assembly.
Using this color system will allow us to provide you with a more consistent color match from project to project. We have provided 5 standard color selections which consist of: Black, White, Grey, Dark Bronze and Green available in both smooth and textured finishes and two premium architectural finishes, Rust and Patina Copper. In addition you may order colors from a more than 200 RAL color selection. We can also custom color match any hue required for your project.
US Architectural Lighting/Sun Valley Lighting's powder coating features a multi-step finishing process using state of the art equipment and application procedures to produce a durable, weather resistant finish to enhance the appearance of our product both at its initial installation and for years to come. Exterior metal is treated with a state-of-the-art 4-stage wash to clean and lightly etch the surface for maximum adhesion.
The metal then receives an electrostatically applied Super-TGIC powder coating formulated from thermoset polyester colorfast resins.
Finally, the metal moves through a curing oven where it is heated to 400º for 15 - 20 minutes. This heat fusion process permanently bonds the UV protected polyester resins to the metal providing a durable, weather resistant finish.
