Kim landscape luminaires are engineered to use the latest lamp technology including halogen and compact fluorescent. This assures maximum performance with
minimum energy consumption. Kim design philosophy emphasizes the creation of lighting effects and the harmony of fixture aesthetics with the surrounding landscape.
Eight-Stage Powder Coat (Aluminum Fixtures)
All Kim aluminum fixtures are finished with an eight-stage powder coat paint process. The key element of this finish is the Titanated Zirconium conversion coating, known as the best preparation for paint adhesion and corrosion resistance. This same pretreatment is used by the automotive industry. Components in direct contact with soil or water are provided additional corrosion protection by clear anodizing prior to Titanated Zirconium conversion coating. Following the pretreatment process, a Super TGIC powder coat is applied to all fixture surfaces. Super TGIC powder is specially formulated to be both mechanically durable and fade resistant.
Hand-Applied Verde (Brass, Copper, and Bronze Fixtures)
The formula and application procedure for Kim’s acid etched verde green patina was developed by the founder of Kim Lighting seven decades ago. The proprietary finish is hand applied to selected copper and bronze fixtures to simulate the natural patina that develops on these materials after years of exposure to sun and moisture. Hand application assures a uniform appearance.
A Note About Verde Patina Finishes
The Kim verde finish is an accelerated aging process duplicating the natural verde that forms on copper and bronze after extended exposure to outside air and humidity. Like natural verde, Kim verde is not permanent and will undergo considerable change depending on location and environment.
Verde can be worn away by rain, sprinklers, or surrounding wind-blown foliage. New verde will eventually form depending on humidity levels and the presence of airborne salts.
