Many customers ask us what the difference between these two finishes is.
IPL is a decorative transfer foil that is printed on the profile in a linear way during the extrusion. They are available in various different looks, such as metal (silver mat or silver brushed, chrome, gold, edelstahl, …), wood, leather and other decorative or fantasy looks.
Some IPL finishes are more fragile than others. In those cases we do not recommend the profiles to be cleaned with aggressive detergents or to be exposed to shocks or other physical impacts.
MISO on the other hand is much more resistant which makes it perfect for flexible profiles. MISO is a Mylar metal coat with a thickness of 0.15 mm. It has its limitations in its available finishes due to the metallic nature of MISO.
