CENTRIA® Introduces Impressions Coating System For Steel And Aluminum

Moon Township, PA - CENTRIA®, manufacturer of metal wall and roof panels, launches the Impressions® coating system. A pre-finished decorative paint system, Impressions is engineered specifically for steel and aluminum substrates.

Impressions is described as providing "superior scratch resistance; exceptional dirt and stain resistance; and remarkable protection from the sun, rain and other natural elements." It is applicable to a number of stainless steel and aluminum substrates.


The coating system is designed to simulate natural finishes, including woods and specialty metals, while requiring less maintenance. In addition, Impressions adheres readily to the metal and delivers color consistency, which results in a uniform appearance throughout the life of the building.

“Impressions takes our substrates to the next level by adding new finishes and additional protections,” said Julie Schessler, product manager, CENTRIA. “It provides greater versatility in color options and in its ability to simulate other materials. At the same time, materials finished with Impressions have an added barrier to ward off wear and tear, which pays off over time.”

Impressions coatings begin with the substrate. A Color Base Coat is added followed by fluoropolymer ink. Those layers are sealed with a clear topcoat made of resins for thermal stability and chemical resistance. The total coating thickness is 1.1 mils (0.0011 inch) on the substrate.

Impressions is available in twelve patterns and colors. For more information, click here
