Aluminum is a silver-white, lightweight, ductile, malleable and corrosion and oxidation-resistant metal element. In Alea we use bright and anodized aluminum.
The skins used come from European animals, tanned and dyed in Italy. Chromium VI (UNI EN ISO 20344). Dyeing is a very delicate process, which must be performed by completely dipping the leather to obtain a homogeneous result.
The epoxy powder coating process is used to color metal structures, legs and frames. The tests on this type of painting showed good resistance to fading, breakage and bubbles, even under the worst conditions.
The porcelain stoneware is 100% natural. A selection of minerals is finely chopped, mixed and pressed to be fired at high temperature, thus obtaining the stoneware slabs. The result is a compact product that has the following characteristics: resistance to abrasion, bending, wear and chemical agents, it is easy to clean and eco-friendly. The color does not vary with sunlight. Not being porous, porcelain stoneware does not absorb water and does not retain dust.
The veneer refers to thin sheets of wood that are glued onto chipboard panels. We only use wood that has been strictly controlled from the origin - this includes Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). Wood essence gives a feeling of warmth and beauty to the product.
In Alea we use solid oak wood, which is characterized by good hardness and resistance to compression and flexion, as well as attacks of fungi and mold. The use of solid wood creates a feeling of comfort and warmth inside the environment.
Italian melamine is an organic compound that combines with other materials to produce melamine resin, a synthetic polymer that has greater resistance and tolerance to fire and heat. At Alea we use melamine with a solid color, striped or wood effect finish.
The fabric we use in Alea is applied to elements such as pincushion screens and coated panels. Our fabrics are 100% polyester, which means strong and resistant. We also offer the application of fabrics supplied by the customer (COM - Customer Owned Materials).
This type of printing is characterized by the speed of ink drying, thanks to ultraviolet light. The quality of the final product is much higher than normal digital printing, moreover thanks to this technique it is possible to print on a wide range of materials and surfaces. At Alea we use digital UV printing on melamine panels, both for reproducing stoneware textures and for the application of customized graphics
At Alea we use only extra-clear glass, which is obtained by removing 90% of oxide from silica, choosing only the purest materials. The result is an extremely clear and neutral appearance, very high light transmission and exceptional color rendering. We use extra-clear glass for the back-lacquered finishes. This gives a particular brilliance to the result and guarantees the absence of the typical green reflection. We also offer the anti-fingerprint option, which has a satin effect.
