What is aluminium composite?
Aluminium Composite is a lightweight product made of two thin sheets of aluminium with a polyethylene core. Designed primarily for medium-term outdoor use (3-5 year manufacturers guarantee), Aluminium Composite 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 with 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?
The main reason most sign companies use Aluminium composite is for cost saving (instead of using stainless steel etc…), 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) so there is no need for painting after machining the Aluminium Composite.
What is aluminium composite commonly used for?
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, light in weight at a reduced cost unlike real stainless steel.
What happens to the waste of aluminium composite?
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.
