GRAVOMETAL PREMIUM BRASS

Now available for a variety of applications. Gravometal has a thin protective lacquer coating to protect the surface from oxidizing over time, but is only suitable for indoor
environments.

GRAVOBRASS PREMIUM ExTERIOR BRASS

Gravobrass Exterior is a solid raw brass typically used for office building exteriors, commonly called “Doctor Plates”. If you do not want the appearance of aging or oxidizing brass, it will be necessary to coat the final engraved (and likely paint-filled)
product with an exterior-grade clear lacquer before or soon after mounting.

GRAVOSTRAL

The cap is metal, the core is Phenolic. Perfect for quality interior metal signage. The .010” (0.25 mm) aluminum caps cover a black Phenolic core. You will never need to paint fill this metal product after engraving. This product can save you time and money.

GRAVOxAL

This solid sheet of aluminum has an anodized surface. The anodization colors the actual metal to a depth of .001” to .002” (0.025 mm to 0.05mm) and is typically more durable than a painted surface. For this reason, anodized aluminum is often used for industrial applications requiring a durable surface finish. While anodized aluminum can be engraved with a laser engraver, an engraved contrast will only be realized with gold, black, or colored anodizing. The silver version has a clear anodization.

ALUMAMARK

This special line of anodized aluminum produces black characters when lasered with any standard CO2 laser engraver. No oxidation or paint fill needed. Available in matte silver, satin silver and satin gold in thicknesses .005” (0.127 mm) and .020” (0.508 mm). Also available with adhesive backing.

COLORED STEEL

Colored Steel is actually a brass-plated steel product designed for use with a laser machine. This product returns a brilliant gold lettering when engraved with a laser engraver. The clear layer of lacquer under the polyester-based top coat or paint protects the brass from oxidizing for years to come. The great appearance and low price have made Colored Steel a favorite of trophy shops using laser engravers. Since the top coating is painted with a polyester-based paint, the surface is sublimation-receptive for dye-sublimation transfers. The masking on this product is clear, so you can print your dyes directly through the masking for easier clean up. Sublimation images work best with white, silver or gold colors.

MARBLED STEEL

Built just like our Colored Steel (above), the final layer of paint on marbled steel is a faux marble pattern. All the other great properties of Colored Steel remain the same on this version of Colored Steel.

COLORED ALUMINUM

This aluminum has been painted with a polyester-based paint. It is the preferred choice for economical trophy plates. Since top coating of Colored Aluminum is painted with a polyester-based paint, the surface is sublimation-receptive for dyesublimation transfers. The masking on this product is clear, so you can print your dyes directly through the masking for easier clean up. Sublimation images work best with white, silver or gold colors.

TROPHY BRASS

An economical brass alternative for signs, trophy plates, awards and plaques designed for use with a rotary engraving machine. Trophy Brass can provide you the rich appeal of engraved
