Cymat Technologies Ltd is a world leader and has exclusive rights in the production of SAF, Stabilized Aluminum Foam. Based in Toronto, Canada, it is an innovative materials technology company that uses Alusion™ Stabilized Aluminum Foam to make lightweight aluminum panels.
Cymat’s Stabilized Aluminum Foam, marketed under the trade name of Alusion™ for architecture, is a versatile and unique material with virtually limitless design and architectural applications. As well as its unique appearance, the aluminum foam panels have sound-absorbing properties making them ideal for applications requiring both sound absorption and beauty.
The lightweight aluminum panels created by Alusion™ foam are strong yet lightweight and similar in appearance to a metallic sponge. It is visually striking, with a modern dramatic look. For architecture, the aluminum foam panels are produced in 12.7mm, 25.4mm, and 43.2mm thicknesses (1/2”, 1” & 1.7”) and three densities (Large Cell, Mid Cell & Small Cell, custom also available). Each thickness and density has its own representative stress/strain curve.
Alusion™ Stabilized Aluminum Foam (SAF)” is buoyant, flame and corrosion resistant in the same way as aluminum. The surface of the material is either left in its solid form as produced or undergoes surface preparations that provide many different appearances from a solid surface “shimmering” look to a translucent “water froth” look.
The Alusion™ product is produced with a proprietary continuous panel production process, which allows it to have many advantages. The product’s competitive edge is that no one can produce aluminum foam in the dimensions and volumes that Cymat Technologies Ltd can provide, with the overall consistency or even with the random yet uniform look in which it is created, It is lightweight and easy to install, and is 100% recyclable.
