Re-Art was the first party in the Netherlands to be awarded the ‘Certified Plus Lab’ certificate and that is for good reason. As early as in 2012 we started testing to see whether the quality of ChromaLuxe was good enough for the high-end segment of printing art and photography. This has resulted in close cooperation between Re-Art and ChromaLuxe. Re-Art was the first party in 2015 to introduce the technology into the art world and became a pioneer for this product, which requires a great deal of knowledge and craftsmanship if you want to work with it with a proper and stable result.
The possibilities with ChromaLuxe are quite varied
ChromaLuxe is the market leader in the field of printing on aluminum and is also known as HD-Metal. ChromaLuxe is a durable new technology that originates from the United States of America. It is a medium for photography or art of unprecedented quality.
Virtually, ChromaLuxe printing is possible with any creation. It produces an almost 3-dimensional effect and has great depth of color which surpasses any expectation. That is because the picture is applied in the surface, not printed on the surface. This implies that these prints are extremely durable. Which explains why the ChromaLuxe prints stand out head and shoulders above a print on Dibond or on aluminum or metal.
- Lightweight panels
- Broad range of colours
- Almost 3D effect

The properties of the plate
A print has a 1.5-mm-thick aluminum plate as its basis and has a white or aluminum base with a matte, satin, or gloss top coating for the desired effect. In addition to the wide color range, these plates are more scratch-resistant than Plexiglas products and they are resistant to moisture and aggressive cleaning agents.
Re-Art has a reputation for its durable products with a long lifespan, which was one of the reasons to choose for printing with ChromaLuxe. The prominent ‘Wilhelm Research Imaging’ laboratory has tested the product for its durability and has guaranteed a minimum life span of 65 years. Manufacturers of inks of prints on Dibond in their terms of delivery give a maximum guarantee of only 2 to 3 years!
Your creations are tailor-made
With Re-Art from Almere every product is tailor-made, so that also goes for our ChromaLuxe prints. We make everything according to your needs and unlike other providers, we do not work with standard sizes which allow you no free choice. You can turn to us for the maximum feasible size of 122 x 244 cm. In addition, we can cut out the shapes you want for your product, such as round or oval.
After having checked your digital print and having optimized it for the process, we print with archival inks on special paper. It goes without saying that we do so by means of an Epson printer, which is attuned especially to this process. Epson still delivers the highest possible print resolution. After the plate has been sawn to size, it is inserted with the print into our big heat press and is heated to two hundred degrees Celsius under high pressure for some time. During this heating process the inks are gasified and transferred to the top layer. After the print has cooled down, the plate can be finished as desired and can be fitted with a suspension profile or frame, entirely in accordance with the artist’s wishes.
