History and Production
Alusion™ is a division of the innovative materials technology company, Cymat Technologies located in Toronto, Canada. Cymat holds the worldwide patent for the production of Alusion™. Alusion ™ was established to bring Cymat’s unique Stabilized Aluminum
Foam (SAF) technology to the architectural and design markets.
Alusion™ was adapted to suit specific industry needs and various versions were
created for a broad range of architectural and design applications.
With over a million pounds of aluminum foam produced, it is a product matched by no other in density, thickness range,overall dimensions, production capacity, and consistency.
This composite material is an aluminum based alloy containing fine ceramic particles.
Architectural & Design applications
Alusion™ for architecture is a versatile 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 Facades, wall cladding, ceiling tiles or dropped ceilings, restaurants, bars, offices, apartment buildings, showroom displays, Terrazzo flooring, signage, lighting fixtures, exhibits, and any application that you dare to imagine.
Alusion™ aluminum foam creates strong yet lightweight panels. Similar in appearance to a metallic sponge, it is visually striking, with a modern dramatic look. For architecture, our material is produced in panels ranging in various densities, and in thicknesses from 12.7mm to 43.2 mm (custom available pending quantities). Standard versions are Small, Mid and Large. In thickness of 12.7 mm, 25.4mm and 43.2 mm. Standard panels are available in dimensions of 1220 MM wide by 2440 MM long (custom longer panels available upon request).
The surface of each panel is either left in its solid natural form as produced, or undergoes surface preparations which provide many different appearances. Appearances as a solid surface “shimmering” look to a translucent “water froth” look, even custom designs. The 2 sides of all our Alusion™ panels, identified as ‘top and/or bottom, look very different from each other.
Upon request, a detailed technical manual, spec sheets, and as well a full set of ASTM test results can be provided. It would be our pleasure to as well offer more information on product offering, application information, and technical specifications.
