The UV resistant coating is bonded to .045 inch aluminum sheeting that in turn is used to create a fine art piece using an amazing process called sublimation. During this process, a digital image is printed in reverse onto a special transfer paper and then with the use of a heat press, the transfer paper is pressed onto the surface of the aluminum sheet at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature heated press causes the inks to transfer directly into the poly-based coating of the aluminum in the form of a gas. The image is not simply printed on top of the surface of the aluminum, but instead is FUSED INTO the surface of the piece.
