Dibond Décor and Stucco finishes – new to Robert Horne

Dibond Stucco shown close up under lighting. The Robert Horne Group has just introduced two new finishes to its extensive aluminium composite Dibond range. Dibond Décor is a selection of panels with realistic wood effect finishes and Dibond Stucco is a panel with a distinctive and special embossed silver finish, combining the uneven raised texture of traditional stucco plaster, with a highly reflective surface.

Dibond Décor is ideal for designers looking for a sustainable, durable and easy-to-fabricate alternative to hardwoods.

Dibond décor is an excellent material for direct-to-substrate screen and digital printing, making it suitable for presenting images and advertising messages. It is not sensitive to dampness and temperature changes and can therefore be used in long term external and internal applications, with no need for maintenance.

Compared to real wood, three dimensional designs can be easily constructed, as the sheets can be routed and folded like other Dibond products. The material can be pre-routed, and delivered to site flat. Folding to finished shape can then be carried out by hand, with no tools, on site - in a matter of minutes. Other standard fabrication techniques including drilling, sawing and stamping, can also be employed Dibond Décor is available in dark wood (Wenge) and light wood (Maple) finishes in a 3mm thickness and is supplied without a PE film.

Dibond Stucco is an embossed matt silver finish with an extremely tactile feel and resistant to marking, making it suitable for applications where human contact may frequently occur.

Under lighting, Dibond Stucco provides an eye-catching, shimmering effect, with points of light reflected by the uneven surface. It is extremely hard wearing and confirms to food grade material specifications and has a UV resistant polyethylene core, making the material suitable for internal and external use.

Due to its special surface structure, Dibond Stucco is not suitable for printing, laminating or CNC milling. Fixing and bonding can be carried out using special techniques which allow for the surface texture. Other standard fabrication techniques include drilling, sawing and stamping, and folding to form three dimensional items.

Dibond Stucco is supplied in 3mm thickness with branded PE Film on both sides. Dibond aluminium composites are ideal for use in design schemes for all kinds of commercial, retail and leisure facilities. Typical applications include bars and counters, fascias and wall finishes, furniture, exhibitions and displays.
