The ALUCOBOND® PLUS Natural Collection offers inspiring alternatives to typical paint finishes. In particular, our brushed finishes create a level of intrigue and depth which are popular with architects and owners. Unlike standard opaque finishes, brushed finishes are translucent, allowing the color of the aluminum to be a major contributor of the overall final color. The aluminum coil casting and rolling processes have no color control of the aluminum coil. This results in slight color variations with different coils of the brushed aluminum utilized in the production of ALUCOBOND PLUS Brushed panels.
