ALUSION Stabilized Aluminum Foam – ALFG-12.7-LG-2S – Large cell 12.7 mm thick (1/2”)

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. It is used for exterior or interior wall cladding, ceiling tiles, restaurants and bars, offices and apartment buildings, cabinets, furniture, showroom displays, flooring, signs, lighting, fixtures, exhibits, or for any application you that you dare to imagine.

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

The ALUSION™ product is composed of aluminum and contains a ceramic particulate which assists in stabilizing the aluminum cells (bubbles). This is also the reason why it is called “Stabilized Aluminum Foam (SAF)”. The material is flame and corrosion resistant in the same way as aluminum. It I s also strain rate insensitive, isotropic, and stable at elevated temperatures. It exhibits acoustic / EMR absorption and vibration damping.
