Does your nameplate reflect the quality products and services you provide? Don’t leave the puzzle one piece short of complete…let Mcloone’s specialty finishes add value to your product while enhancing brand perception.
- As a cost effective upgrade, straight line brushing gives the appearance of texture while adding visual interest.
- Try selective brushing to lend emphasis to a specific element of your nameplate.
- Two directional brushing gives a unique look to your nameplate, while making it less likely to show scratches or fingerprints.
- Spin finished aluminum adds movement and dimension to the surface, which compels the viewer to “study” your nameplate.
Doming is a popular finishing option that can be applied to any one of these mechanical finishes. It uses a polyurethane resin to create a protective, tactile lens over the nameplate. You get the benefit of added protection while creating another level of sophistication within your nameplate.
When you’re looking for that special touch that’s highly reflective, provides an industrial look, or has great eye catching appeal, the following special processes may be just what you’re looking for.
Diamond cutting is an exciting new specialty process offered from Mcloone that can be used to create a variety of custom looks. Choose from three different types of diamond cutting patterns that allow you to decide which process is best for your application. Whether you need a refined and decorative look, or would rather have something more industrial, we can alter the cutting pattern to suit your needs.
Fine Diamond Cutting
Fine diamond cutting gives a very refined, tight pattern to the markings etched by the diamond. It’s great for accentuating outlines or curves, as well as highlighting the small details of your nameplate.
Phalanx diamond cutting makes a series of overlapping (crosshatch) markings on the nameplate. As a result, the pattern leaves behind dozens of small pyramids in the desired area. This style of diamond cutting is great for accentuating titles or the company name on a nameplate.
One final specialty process combines diamond cutting with a process called stamp and fill. This process starts by selectively debossing certain elements of your nameplate. Highlights and outlines are diamond cut to give even more visual appeal to your nameplate. Because the debossed area acts as a buffer from abrasion, the stamp and fill process is a great way to ensure your nameplate stands the test of time while remaining classy and visually appealing.
