More about this product

Alusion™ foam creates strong yet lightweight panels. Similar in appearance to a metallic sponge, Alusion™ is visually striking, with a modern dramatic look. For architecture, it is produced in 12.7 mm (1/2”), 25.4 mm (1”) and 43.2 mm (1.7”) thicknesses and three densities (Large Cell, Mid and Small Cell). 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.

Alusion™ Large Cell – Open One Side – Façade:
With this version of Alusion™, the shiny silver skin of this large cell material is open only on the front side of the panel, and left natural on the back side (closed skin), and the cells on the back side of the panel are left natural (not exposed). This creates a surface that has been described as appearing like an “aluminum sponge”. This is a low density material resulting in large, deep cells, which are non translucent on one side, and closed cells on the back side of the panel.

Alusion™ Architectural Stabilized Aluminium Foam is a unique and visually stunning surface material which is more than skin deep. It provides beauty, strength and lightweight acoustic solutions for a variety of creative opportunities. The various versions of Alusion™ can be utilized for both interior and exterior applications. Alusion™ is produced by injecting air into molten aluminium, which contains a fine dispersion of ceramic particles. These particles stabilize the bubbles formed by the air.
