Aluminium is a non-ferrous metal, which combines great mechanical rigidity with light weight. This makes it especially suitable for furniture. If treated correctly, it has a good resistance to corrosion. By powdercoating aluminium, this corrosion resistance can even be enhanced. After a chemical pre-treatment, an epoxy powder is applied statically and baked. Tribù always uses European, ultra-durable and scratch-resistant polyester powdercoatings that guarantee a UV-resistance of 15 years. For certain collections (Branch, Illum & Neutra) parts of the frame are die-cast under high pressure which results in a seamless and extremely solid frame. Additionally, an extra epoxy primer coat is applied to these collections.
Powder coated aluminium is easy to clean with clear water and a pH-neutral fluid detergent. Stubborn stains can be removed with Aluminium Cleaner. If necessary, use a soft brush to remove the dirt from the pores. To protect the frame against the adhesion of dirt, Metal Protector with Teflon® can be used which applies an invisible protective film.
