Depending on the operation, one window or door is subjected to more stress than others. Resistant surfaces ensure that aesthetics and function are permanently maintained. With the right coating, fittings remain corrosion-resistant and smooth-running in the long term.
MACO, with its seven surface processes, currently offers the widest range of in-house production in the industry: These include the premium surface Tricoat, powder coating, anodising, wet painting, vacuum vapourising and plastic coating. A new generation in surface technology is heralded by our standard finish Silverlook-Evo and the premium surface Tricoat-Evo, which are based on the "Evo effect" which is totally unique in the industry. Available exclusively from MACO!
MACO Surface Technology
Optimum corrosion protection
The PREMIUM-PLUS surface finish offers maximum rust protection for our RUSTICO shutter hardware, as verified by external testing. The finely textured surface combines all mechanical properties in one. It is rust-resistant, scratch-proof and water and stain resistant. Even years of sunshine cannot harm the surface. PREMIUM-PLUS is generally applied to all MACO shutter hardware, and completed by specially coated screws. From the delivery date 1st January 2013, you will receive a 10-year guarantee on the PREMIUM-PLUS surface. PREMIUM-PLUS is available in deep black (RAL 9005), signal grey (RAL 7004) and traffic white (RAL 9016).
Questions and answers
What is corrosion?
Corrosion is a process in which metallic materials are attacked and destroyed by chemical or electrochemical reactions. This means that the hardware would rust without corrosion protection. It is triggered by substances in the environment, for example in salty sea air, in oak wood containing tannic acid, in aggressive cleaning agents and even in builder's dust.
Materials processed by MACO
We use steel, ZAMAK, aluminium and PVC in the production of hardware. The final surface treatment defines the appearance of the hardware components in terms of colour and surface texture. The hardware is reliably protected against corrosion.
Surface processing technologies
In our in-house production we use seven different surface processing technologies: TRICOAT-PLUS, silver-look (electro-plating), RUSTICO-PREMIUM-PLUS (powder coating), anodizing, wet varnishing, vacuum deposition and PVC coating.
Why do I need surface protection?
The coating protects the base material against environmental impacts and signs of wear, offers decorative design options and improves technical properties such as slip and wear characteristics.
