primaDURA™ is our flagship coated & printed Aluminium product, providing outstanding full-colour print quality and long-term resistance to UV and exterior weather conditions.

Based on a revolutionary 4-stage process incorporating a direct-to-substrate printing method utilising specialised inks, primaDURA™ offers unbelievable durability and anti-graffiti protection.

The combination of the highly abrasion and scratch resistant coatings and aluminium base material provides a robust finish against attention by vandals.

The outstanding durability, quality aesthetic appearance achieves the necessary approvals for use on The London Underground and use on rolling stock.

primaDURA™ provides a cost-effective alternative to vitreous enamel signage in both prestigious high street and rail applications.

Supported with a 10 year exterior warranty to EN ISO 4618:2014, primaDURA passes reaction to Fire BS EN 13501-2:2016 – complies with the requirements Classes B, d0. Meets BS 476-6:1989+A1:2009 (Class 0) and BS 476-7:1997 (Class 1) for Surface Spread of Flame and Fire Propagation. Conforms to BS EN 45545-1:2013 for the protection of passengers and staff in railway vehicles in the event of a fire on passenger carrying trains and approvals to LUL S1085: Issue A4: 2016 for Fire Safety Performance of Materials in Rail Stations and Tunnels Infrastructure.

Storage

When handling, it is highly recommended to handle panels one by one to prevent friction and scratches. For storage, it is compulsory to store the panels horizontally, on flat and stable pallets that have dimensions at least equal to the size of the panels.

Maintenance

The primaDURA panels are graffiti resistant, therefore, it is possible to clean the custom surface with many products such as water, white spirits, alcohol, or acetone using a dry, non-abrasive cloth (microfibre type). The customised image is included inside the panel material protecting it from a “new customisation”.

Transport

All packaging is tailor made according to the customised primaDURA panel dimensions.
When you receive your order, it is very important to open your packages to be able to notify the shipping carrier, in the event of damaged merchandise.
