What is Aluminium Composite?
Aluminium Composite is a lightweight product made of two sheets of aluminium with a solid polyethylene core. Designed primarily for medium-term outdoor use (5 year manufacturers guarantee), it has a hard wearing powder coated finish and comes in a range of basic colours and finishes, it is also weather and rust resistant to the manufacturers guarantee.
What effects can be achieved by using Aluminium Composite?
With a little creativity there are lots of effects and contrasts that can be created with aluminium composite flat cut letters and logos.
We have placed several images below on this page between some of the information to give you some idea of effects you can achieve, you can also combine aluminium composite with other materials like acrylic creating whole new looks.
Why use Aluminium composite for lettering?
The main reason most sign companies use Aluminium composite are for Cost saving (instead of using stainless steel), weight as Aluminium Composite is a very light weight product, and Speed of availability (as we stock all colours and finishes in pre-finished sheets ready to cut).
Where is this lettering used?
Most sign companies buying aluminium composite lettering go for the metallic metal effect as a cheaper alternative to stainless steel, these finishes are available in mirror polished and brushed effects. This allows you to have lettering with the look of metal and the weight of plastic but a reduced cost to the price of than real stainless steel.
What happens to the waste from our letters and logos?
Unfortunately this is the one product we can’t recycle, due to the mix of the aluminium and polyethylene core, we would always recommend Stainless steel or Acrylic as these materials are of a longer life span and are fully recyclable.
