Aluminum Panels Offer Strength, Durability

June 29, 2018

Lorin Industries, Inc's coil anodized aluminum offers significant benefits of increased strength and durability at a lower weight and cost than competing materials. The cost-effective coil anodizing process, pioneered by Lorin, protects the aluminum while also improving its aesthetic properties and durability. 

Anodized aluminum is as much as two-thirds lighter than other metals, such as copper, brass, gold, zinc, pewter, bronze, and stainless steel. This lighter weight saves money in 2 ways: far fewer pounds of material is required for any given application; and the supporting structure no longer needs to be as expensive to hold up the anodized aluminum. Coil anodizing delivers consistent quality, and the handling and installation is simple as the material is light and workable. This solves many challenges faced in construction due to rigid or heavy materials. Even with its light weight, coil anodized aluminum has an exterior surface hardness second only to diamond and is therefore unmatched in abrasion resistance and durability. 

Continuous coil anodizing also delivers superior aesthetics by producing a clear, translucent oxide layer that helps the natural beauty of the metal shine through. Its three-dimensional crystalline structure reflects and refracts light to help the building come alive in ways that coatings simply cannot match. For exterior use anodized aluminum can be made to simulate other metals using inorganic dyes or metal fines added into the pores of the protective anodic outer layer. For interior applications, anodized aluminum can be made into almost any color imaginable. And because it is coil anodized by Lorin, that color and finish is consistent over every square inch of aluminum produced adding a premium look to your project. Unlike painted or coated products, Lorin Anodized Aluminum will not chip, flake, or peel, and it will not oxidize like other metals. 

Anodized aluminum can be used for a wide range of architectural and construction applications, including building facades, curtain walls, roofs, column wraps, and lighting. Building facades can be installed as honeycomb panels, ACPs (Aluminum Composite Panels), solid metal panels, and roll formed panels. Other common uses includetrim, soffits, signage, backsplashes, and ceiling panels.
