100x100cm Direct Print on Brushed Aluminium – Pure Elegance with an exclusive BUTLERFINISH® look, ready to hang. The photo is printed directly onto a 3 mm thick, sturdy brushed aluminium Dibond with a BUTLERFINISH® look. Two thin aluminium sheets sandwich a black polyethylene core to ensure maximum stability and water resistance. Thanks to the brushed surface, the aluminium backing gives the artwork an extraordinary, metallic appearance. During production of the cover sheet, the surface is ground horizontally to produce a brushed effect. The result is eye-catching: The areas of the photograph that are white or very light are not printed, but instead take on the appearance of the brushed aluminium surface.
The direct UV-print is colour-fast, light-resistant, and even damp-proof. The artwork on brushed aluminium Dibond is therefore not only suitable for indoor areas such as the bathroom or the kitchen, but also for covered outdoor areas protected from rain and direct sunlight. The aluminium Dibond backing is extremely light, and the practical hanging system ensures it is easy to hang on the wall, even with large formats. Simply unpack the artwork, hang it up, and enjoy its floating, metallic effect on your wall.

What other says about this:
"Wow, what an amazing picture! I love the way the print on the brushed aluminium brings an extraordinary lively look. The Elephant is virtual 3D like when you move around the picture and the light changes and brings new elements to the picture. I am so pleased I invested in this! Great picture, fantastic combination, and a true and sad reminder of the disappearance of the Elephant ..." - Customer from Norway (5 star at erikbrede.com)
