    I quoted a job using 1/2 " Brushed Gold Aluminum Ultra-board
    without knowing no one keeps it in stock, so that I can buy just one sheet,
    I have to buy a case of six :(
    I'm thinking of bonding a sheet of brushed gold 3mm max-metal to black gator board and then routing, as a work-around.

    I can't be the 1st that has run into this, anyone do this or have any other suggestions?

    R-tape (FDC) VinylEfx makes a 48in roll of brushed gold.

    Thanks bannertime.
    That's a polymer brushed gold vinyl, right? If so, I thought about that, but I didn't think it would be thick enough to look the same.
    Have you done that?

    What about laminating the 3mm brushed gold to 1/4" Black Sintra?

    Try Gemini with their GemLeaf. Howmac has their Metal/Gator combo that is exact replica of what you are looking for.

    We laminate 3mm substrate to 3/4" black gator quite often. Not too much brushed gold, though. Why not bond .040 brushed aluminum to 1/2' gator ?? As long as it's interior.
