ALUSION is a visually striking cladding material unlike any other in Australia.


You can buy ALUSION™ in Australia and New Zealand exclusively through Robertson Façade Systems. 


Developed by Cymat Technologies in Canada, ALUSION offers architects and designers unique Architectural Stabilised Aluminium Foam panels.


It's a panel solution with unmatched density, range of thickness, dimensions, production capacity and consistency.


And, most importantly, ALUSION is non-combustible.

What sets ALUSION™  apart from other panel solutions?

ALUSION™ is made of stabilised aluminium foam. Produced as continual flat sheets, it creates strong, lightweight panels, similar in appearance to a metallic sponge, with virtually limitless design and architectural applications. So, choose ALUSION™ for a modern, dramatic look. 

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.
