The Black Opaque, finish is a product of our extensive research and development in conjunction with the expertise  of our manufacturing team in Italy.  These  finishes  are  created  using  a  special low-temperature  baked industrial varnish process  that  creates  a  perfectly  uniformed colour  for  the Products. A  specially  formulated  high-quality industrial varnish is  applied  to  the  surface of  the Product before being oven-cured at low temperatures. Please note all our Varnished finishes have undergone the rigorous salt spray testing in accordance to AS 2331.3.1-2001, being 168 hours of nebular salt spray test. The results can be provided upon request.


Features & Benefits

Uniquely strong and durable, the Black Opaque finish is coated with a protective top coat. Produced in Europe, the effect is a very durable surface, similar to that used in the automotive industry. The flat, uniform finish has no ripples or orange-peel effect and is available in most products in our contemporary and classical collections.


A finish that bridges the gap between old and new, black opaque is available in most products in our contemporary and some classical collections.


Care & Maintenance

Black opaque can scratch or chip under extreme force and should be cleaned with warm, pH-neutral soapy water and a soft cloth.
