Buffed Cast Aluminum
Gemini uses a premium aluminum alloy #514 and pours this metal into a cured sand mold. The letters are cooled, removed from the sand mold and shot blasted to remove all sand particulates. the letters are then stroked on the face to a 400 grit finish. The side returns are blasted again, and the faces are then buffed to a high luster eliminating most, but not all, face imperfections and than a gloss clear coat is applied. Finally, a cast aluminum product with a high luster.
Anodized finishes are not just coatings... they are a part of the finish aluminum letter. Anodizing is an electrochemical process that hardens aluminum and allows it to be colonized. We perform our own anodizing to ensure you letters within the same order have color consistency and are delivered to you within days. Some of the many reasons to have Gemini anodize your aluminum letters include: Abrasion and weather resistant; Beautiful finish; Increases hardness and durability; Will not crock or peel;Unaffected by sunlight / UV; Environmentally friendly; Cost effective. Note; Polished anodized finishes are not available in Cast Aluminum, and due to the anodizing process, colors may vary slightly from order to order.
By their very nature, patina finish will vary from letter to letter and order to order. These finishes will change in appearance over time depending on contact with moisture and temperature. Patinas can bleed onto the installation surface when installed outside..
