Cymat Technologies Ltd, based in Toronto, Canada, is an innovative materials technology company that has the exclusive worldwide rights for producing lightweight aluminum panels using Alusion™ Stabilized Aluminum Foam, through patents and licenses.
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, it has sound-absorbing properties making it ideal for applications requiring both sound absorption and beauty.
The Alusion™ aluminum foam creates strong yet lightweight panels that are similar in appearance to a metallic sponge. It is visually striking, with a modern dramatic look. For architecture, lightweight aluminum 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 aluminum foam panels 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™ lightweight aluminum panels are produced with a proprietary continuous panel production process, which gives them 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.
