| Return - Metal
There are 3 kinds of metal return materials, stainless steel, Alluminum & iron. Return is 3.5 cm ~ 4 cm thick normally. It can also customized by your requirements.
Iron return is much cheaper, but corrosion resistance is not as good as stainless steel. And it is mainly used in interiror letters in paint & baking craft.
Alluminum is antioxidant and much lighter than iron & stainless steel, but it is not solid as stainless steel, and anodized colors can not be very accurate.
Stainless steel is much stronger, flexible and widely used, it is normally 1mm thick alloy 304 style (#304 C). Finish is very luxury, and welcomed by brands.
1. Stainless Steel - finish & colors
Finish: Polished (mirror) / Brushed.
Polished: It is the original stainless steel finish, just like a mirror and is easy to have finger print. It is suggest to add anti-finger lacquer for touchable letters.
Brushed: also called dull polished, normally in unidirectional satin finish and has a matt feeling.
Original stainless steel colors can not statisfied the big market, so more and more colors are available.
Pure metal color
--- Ion plating craft: a metal color film deposition on the stainless steel surface in intense heat space.
Gold, red, champagne colors, together with colors similar to brass, bronze, Titanium, nickel, etc.
The color is much pure. if you need antique finish, it needs handmade craft to make it, suggest Galvanic plating.
cheap antique metal colors
Un-pure metal color (craft cost is two times than ion plating)
--- Galvanic plating craft: chemical or auto-catalytic plating in normal temperature, the color is mixed into the stainless steel, so color is durable. But it is not friendly to enviroment.
mixed colors, antique feel.
Cartier insist stainless steel in red painting because they need the brushed finish.
If your signage is interior and do not insist brushed finish, it is suggested iron return because the surface is nearly the same and cost effective.
It is very light & cost effective, second choice for return. Color craft is anodized & painting, but can not be very accurate to the sample colors.
It only have power coating & painting craft, glossy or matt finish. Good Choice for big and interior channel letters.
