Spectra Colour & Tone finishes

Spectra Colour

Spectra Colour is our powder coating option, available in any RAL colour such as blacks (RAL 9005, 9004) and is suitable for internal and external applications.  This uses an electrostatic polyester powder coating process for solid non-transparent colours and is available on a wide range of tactile ironmongery and hardware.

Spectra Tone

Spectra Tone applies a simulated metal finish through an electrophoretic process for those projects where satin brass, gold, black or bronze is required. This coating can be lacquered and coloured with metallic dye solutions, including our distinctive BF bronze finish, to give colour, texture and improved durability.

BF • Simulated Bronze

BZ • Bronze

BK • Matt Black

​BF • Simulated Bronze

Two new Spectra Tone options for the Continental range; pearl lustre or hand polished nickel.  When applied to brass these two finishes offer a luxurious warmth with hints of brass or a high shine with a reassuring depth.


PEN • Pearl lustre nickel

PN • Hand polished nickel

 
 

Care and maintenance

Taking care of your Spectra finish

Wipe clean with a solution of washing up liquid using a soft cloth or sponge, then rinse and dry with a dry soft cloth or kitchen roll. It is advised not to use solvent based chemicals, strong acids, alkalis or abrasive cleaning materials. If a softer metal such as a ring or key marks the surface, it is most likely the soft metal has been left on the coated surface; in this case use a soft cloth and general household cleaner to remove the soft metal deposit.


For the Spectra Tone finishes, regular attention with warm, soapy water will maintain appearance, with the periodic use of a quality metal polish.
