What is Sublimation?

Dye sublimation is a digital print technology that allows the reproduction of full colour images on a variety of surfaces. Dye sublimation on hard surface surfaces is possible because the surfaces have been coated using an innovative manufacturing processes that provide high-definition, durable photo panels that preserve images for generations. Instead of printing images directly on a surface, which may scratch easily, the image is infused into the coating to provide permanent protection and durability.

Product Benefits

The ChromaLuxe Surface – Unlike Anything Else

The vibrancy and dimensionality of ChromaLuxe products rival any photographic product and exceed the quality of traditional paper prints when placed behind inherently imperfect glass.  ChromaLuxe photo panels have an extremely durable scratch resistant surface that is waterproof and can be cleaned easily with a damp cloth

Fade Testing Results

Two independent, highly respected research and testing laboratories conducted environmental life tests on ChromaLuxe Photo Panels and clearly concluded that ChromaLuxe HD Metal Prints are the longest lasting photo medium in the current market.

The first laboratory’s testing replicated the effects of incandescent lighting along with indirect natural sunlight against the likelihood of noticeable fading over time. The laboratory compared ChromaLuxe with the top three long-lasting (archival) photo papers. Test results showed that ChromaLuxe lasts twice as long as the highest-quality photo paper and four times longer than the third best photo paper. The second independent laboratory replicated the effects of fluorescent lighting in a windowless office environment, in an effort to measure the likelihood of noticeable fading. ChromaLuxe outlasted its next closest competitor in quality by a factor of 1.7 times the life of their photo paper.

The high definition, vibrant colours coupled with superior fade, moisture, stain, and scratch resistant properties make ChromaLuxe an excellent choice for commercial, fine art, and home décor applications.
