So, for a modern, dramatic look, choose ALUSION.™ Put simply, ALUSION™ is a unique and visually striking cladding material, made of stabilised aluminium foam. Produced as continual flat sheets, it has virtually limitless design and architectural applications, creating strong, lightweight panels, similar in appearance to a metallic sponge.
It's so unique because each side of the panel looks entirely different. What's more, you can choose to leave the surface of each panel in its solid, natural form, or apply surface preparations to achieve endless creative cladding solutions: from a solid, shimmering look to a translucent 'water froth' look - it's completely your choice.
ALUSION™ adds a signature touch to any project, enhancing the ambiance of an environment and performing well as an acoustic solution.

ALUSION™ Large Cell
ALUSION™ Large Cell - Open both sides (translucent)
ALUSION™'s Shiny silver skin is removed on both sides, creating an extremely lightweight, translucent panel that allows light to pass through. The bottom of this panel sharply reflects light and picks up the colour of well lit material at a reflective angle to the panel.
ALUSION™ Large Cell - Open one side
ALUSION™'s shiny silver skin is removed exposing the cells underneath and creating a surface just like an aluminium sponge. It is a low density material with large, deep open cells.
ALUSION™ Large Cell - Natural
ALLUSION™ Large Cell Natural has a large 'frozen molten bubble' look on the top surface. Being delicate it's best suited for indoor applications (it's bubbles collapse with force, so it's best out of public reach or protected with an acrylic sheet or glass.
ALUSION™ Mid Cell
ALUSION™ Mid Cell - Open one or two sides
A special blasting process removes the surface on one or both sides of these ALUSION™ mid cell panels, exposing cells below the skin. It contains mid cell open areas and swirling solid areas, creating an appearance similar to the moon's surface or a porous lava flow.
ALUSION™ Mid Cell - Natural
This ALUSION™ surface is created naturally in a mid density using a continuous panel line production. It has a shiny, simmering silver skin featuring a unique waved pattern.
ALUSION™ Small Cell
ALUSION™ Small Cell - Open one or two sides

ALUSION™ Small Cell - Natural
This ALUSION small cell surface is created naturally in a higher density, featuring a shiny shimmering skin with a unique waved pattern.
