Direction of Panel:
Metallic and mica coatings have a reflective or pearlescent finish, due to the millions of microscopic aluminum or mica particles suspended in the paint mix. These particles are oriented in the longitudinal direction during the coil coating process. During production, arrows and a production number are printed on the back surface of the panels. Directional arrows are also printed on the strippable protective film. Consequently, it is important when fabricating and installing panels with metallic or mica coatings to take this orientation into account. Panel directionality must be maintained in order to avoid shading differences between adjacent panels and must be taken into account when making the optimization calculations.
