Alcan Upgrades Dibond Brushed Gold

A new and improved formulation of Dibond Brushed Gold graphic display board designed for both exterior and interior use has been introduced by Alcan Composites USA, Dibond Brushed Gold is the second member of the Dibond Metal Series that also includes Dibond Brushed Silver. It features a newly formulated rich, metallic gold finish. Now both Dibond Brushed Silver and Dibond Brushed Gold may be incorporated into exterior graphic displays, offering excellent outdoor durability. Dibond Brushed Gold and Dibond Brushed Silver are perfect for creating signage, exhibits and displays.

"We're pleased to offer graphic designers yet another bold metallic look to incorporate in exterior designs with Dibond Brushed Gold," says Mike McKitrick, product manager, Alcan Composites USA. "This designer finish adds a dramatic premium to projects that will be just as effective in drawing attention to exterior graphic displays as it has been for interior designs. Both Dibond Brushed Gold and Dibond Brushed Silver are cost-effective substrates that do not require any other products to be laminated to their surfaces to achieve these designer finishes."

Dibond, the Ultimate Substrate, is a rigid, durable aluminum composite material consisting of two pre-painted sheets of .012-inch aluminum bonded to a solid polyethylene core—a unique composition that makes it approximately one-half the weight of aluminum. Dibond, the flattest panel on the market, offers a superior surface for displaying digital and screen-printed graphics. Dibond won't bow or oil can.

New Dibond Brushed Gold and Dibond Brushed Silver offer significant cost savings, ease of fabrication and rigidity when compared to other aluminum laminates.

Dibond Brushed Gold and Dibond Brushed Silver are available in the 3mm thickness in 4-foot by 8-foot sheets. Both products are backed by Dibond in the Fine Silver color.
