When You’re Unlike Anything Else

There’s a reason ‘Luxe’ is in our name. We are the world’s leading manufacturer of superior print mediums.

Through dye sublimation, images are infused directly into our specially coated sheets of metal, wood and tabletop panels to create the most luxurious, vibrant and long lasting photo medium in the world.

All coatings and substrates are made in the U.S.A. with manufacturing and fabrication done in Louisville, KY. Our additional locations in Belgium and Australia allow us to serve our global customer base and supply our products to more than 80 countries worldwide.

ChromaLuxe is an extension of the Universal Woods family, the world’s leading manufacturer of hard surface sublimatable products and mezzanine decking. It is also a sister brand to Unisub, which provides the highest quality sublimatable custom products.

  • The coating that is applied to the substrates contains no lead or other heavy metals or phthalates. This coating is a thin, very durable film which is cured using a low energy process creating no emissions from the facility.
  • Contain no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
  • Environmentally considerate facility that uses a low energy process for curing the coating.
  • Recycling program actively in place (see details below).
  • Low energy light bulbs are in place.
  • Efficiency program in place to unplug or shut down any unneeded equipment when possible.
  • The manufacturing plant is an environmentally considerate facility that uses a low energy process for curing the Unisub coatings. Plastic drinking water bottles and aluminum cans are recycled. Aluminum and steel are recycled on-site as well as any plain paper. Low energy use light bulbs are in place as well as a program of unplugging or shutting down any unneeded equipment when possible.
  • REACH (Europe) Information: Unisub articles in formal use have no chemical emissions for REACH consideration. At this time Unisub products are REACH exempt.
  • Aluminum that we purchase is both created by pre and post-consumer recycled material and is recyclable. This is important because material is diverted from the waste stream through the recycling infrastructure and can be used for other products.
  • Our aluminum supplier is GreenCircle Certified: GreenCircle certifies environmental claims of products to prevent unfair or deceptive claims in the marketplace; our aluminum supplier has been audited by a 3rd party organization to confirm their recyclable claims. ALERIS ROLLED PRODUCTS, LLC. GREEN CIRCLE CERTIFICATION
  • Material can be recycled.
  • We purchase our Hardboard material from Decorative Panels International, Inc. (DPI). 100% of the hardboard material we purchase is manufactured with FSC certified raw material. DPI has been audited and their certification is attached from the FSC organization.
  • Formaldehyde-free manufacturing means our hardboard panels will not adversely affect indoor air quality.
  • A mold-resistant formulation has been built into the substrate to fend off typical stains.
  • DPI foresters and logging contractors are dedicated to conservation, prompt reforestation and the protection of wildlife, plants, soil, air, and water quality. Statement of Forestry Responsibility
  • Hardboard includes raw material from managed forests as well as clean content with no added formaldehyde.
  • Hardboard includes raw material from managed forests as well as clean content with no added formaldehyde.
  • Hardboard is CARB exempt. For further information on exemption from CARB, please refer to: International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures - Revision of ISPM No. 15: Regulation of Wood Packaging Material in International Trade
  • Material can be recycled.
  • 10% of material comes from Sawmill waste.
  • MDF products are purchased through a mill that is part of the Composite Panel Association Eco-Certified Composite Grademark Program (GM Program). The GM Program requires the mill to periodically be tested to confirm compliance and also requires that a mill’s quality control system meet strict criteria for personnel, procedures and facilities. This is a voluntary standard and is the optimal use of forestry byproducts and residuals – turning recycled and reclaimed material into higher value products to it’s not wasted.
  • The composite wood panels we purchase from Georgia-Pacific are among the greenest products available; only products carrying the ECC-certified logo are produced in a manufacturing plant or facility that is audited and certified by CPA.
  • The standard focuses on life cycle inventory and other verifiable environmental practices and highlights the responsible use of wood fiber by composite panel manufacturers.
  • Our ECC certified MDF procured products are California Air Resources Board (CARB) compliant - No added formaldehyde (NAF: CARB Executive Order N-15-021).
  • The source plant demonstrates that the panel’s carbon store offsets its cradle-to-gate carbon footprint as determined in kg-CO2 equivalents of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The plant uses the CPA Carbon Calculator to determine if a panel performs as a carbon sink resulting in overall net carbon storage.
  • At least 85% of total annual wood fiber used is sourced within 250 miles (402 km) of the manufacturing plant.
  • Our MDF is comprised of Recycled/Recovered material and uses a minimum of 75% recycled or recovered fiber; OR at least 50% recycled or recovered fiber AND a minimum of 5% post-consumer fiber. Percentages are calculated on a weight basis as measured in bone dry tons (bdt).
  • The source plant for our MDF product has documented that greater than 97% fiber furnish brought on-site to manufacture panels is either converted into panels or other non-waste products.
  • The source plant hold a valid assessment and certificate from a certifying agency recognized by CPA such as the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC—Controlled Wood Standard or Chain of Custody Standard) or the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI—Fiber Sourcing Standard).
