Chroma® applied: Guidelines for Use

3form Chroma ® applied panels make for beautiful solid surfacing applications. produced with UV stabilization technology, the applied Color collection is suitable for both interior and exterior use. Most Chroma applied colors are opaque by design to accomodate applications where the Chroma is mounted to a solid substrate (wood, metal, etc.). Blue opal, Topaz, ruby, Zircon, Wheat and lime are all translucent and will require liquid White to be considered opaque. Because the color is opaque Chroma applied panels are best illuminated with edge lighting. Chroma applied panels must be mounted using mechanical fasteners. DO NOT use adhesives to apply Chroma applied panels. The Chroma applied color palette is designed to complement Chroma infused colors. For each Chroma infused color, 3form offers a Chroma applied color pairing similar in hue, however the colors are NOT exactly the same. it is recommended that samples are approved before specifying. w h e n t o use a pp l i e d col or Chroma applied colors are best specified in countertop or table top applications that will be attached to a solid substrate (wood, metal, etc.). Because the Chroma applied colors are opaque, the fasteners used to attach substrate to the Chroma will not affect the overall aesthetics. Chroma applied colors should always be specified as the second surface. Chroma applied colors can also be specified for exterior applications. Chroma applied colors are formulated with inorganic pigments that are UV stable and will not change color over time in exterior applications (Conversely, Chroma infused should NOT be used in exterior applications as the color will be affected by UV light and change color over time). another good application for Chroma applied are privacy partitions or glazing panels where NO light transmission is desired.
