The trend in modern photography is quite clearly moving towards high value products. The compound product ‘premium composite’ fuses a high value artistic motif with a high grade production process to create a highly valuable finished work of art. The stars of the international photography scene today mostly reproduce their photos on premium composite. Premium composite is a so-called “Sandwich product”, made from a combination of high grade materials. A photo exposure fixed to Alu-Dibond is laminated behind a sheet of high grade acrylic glass with artificial resin. The result is a high gloss surface, which is stabilised by the Alu-Dibond sheet. The photo medium is a classical exposure on supreme photo paper.
Premium composite production process
Premium composite is produced with a demanding process using high grade components. Firstly the image file is exposed on large format supreme paper. This exposure is then laminated with artificial resin to an Alu-Dibond sheet. After the laminate is left to dry, acrylic glass is then laminated to the compound material to create a typical premium composite sandwich structure. This adhesive fix also has to be left to completely dry. Finally, a girder section is mounted to the back side of the Alu-Dibond sheet with silicon. The result is a highly valuable photo product, that can be mounted free-hanging.
