The Process

Custom finish coating is a specialty of One LBJ and the Decoral Systems. How it works: The powder coating wood grain process is a sublimation process, using pressure and heat combined.  The decorative patterns of faux wood grain are transferred into powder coated surfaces that have been completely cured.


Visualize a photograph of a piece of natural grain that is placed on a transfer material. To create the effect of faux wood grain, a coat of powder is applied to a metal substrate and semi-baked. Once it has cooled, the custom wood grain transfer is applied and vacuumed to remove air trapped between the powder and the transfer.  Lastly, a final bake of the combined system is performed to facilitate the perfect decorative coating fuse. Next, dye on the transfer then volatilizes, forming the grain as a substantial portion of the powder film and a custom finish coating results.
