Embossed Metal

Metal embossing is a stamping technique aimed at creating an ablaze 3D effect. This process can be accomplished by matching male and female roll molds. Through embossing, metal will be formed an irregular surface with a depressed or raised area.

Metal embossing is generally achieved by applying a combination of heat and pressure to materials. Therefore, the thickness of the metal may be changed during processing. However, the toughness of metal will be reinforced. Roller dies are an essential tool in embossing.

Roller dies compose of upper and lower. The upper roller block is stationary, and the lower one is movable. In processing, the metal plate is passed through upper and lower roller dies to form a given pattern.

The largest characteristic of the embossed metal is waterproof and high aesthetic. In decoration, you can custom the pattern according to the project. Common types of embossed include embossed linen, embossed sand, and embossed cube.

The 3D vision of embossed finish means where it can give impart a sense of luxury to architectural exterior and interior decoration.

Why Use TOPSON for Embossed Metal Finish

In general, the embossing pattern is customized. When fabricating quality embossed metal finish, it is vital that the visual contrast in the concave and convex areas should be as strong as possible. The degree of roller wear and metal materials will influence the embossed effect. If the material itself is not smooth or without good tenacity, metal materials will deform during embossing. Using more worn roller dies will result in varying shades of texture will appear on the metal surface.

Besides the material itself and roller dies, processes like bending, welding, and cutting also have a significant impact on its quality when crafting embossing metal products. So, choosing a reliable metal fabricator is evaluated by its embossing crafts and overall processing capabilities.

TOPSON provides metal finishes and metal products processing services to architects, designers, project contractors, metal distributors, and more. Our strong fabricating capability can make any metal finish, including but not limited to stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and steel.

Advantage of Embossing Metal Finish

Repeating a simple bump shape on a stainless steel surface can transform a standard panel system into something noteworthy while also providing performance benefits. Custom metal embossing can rigidize the metal surface and improve impact resistance rather than only create unique textures. Another reason why designers select embossed metal is that it is the best choice for hiding surface imperfections.

Strong Visual Impact

Metal material itself has a higher aesthetic commonly used in decoration. Embossing can form a unique shape on the routine metal surface. Just about this simple bump shape can transform a standard panel system into something worth noticing.

Scratched Resistance

Scratches will affect the overall beauty of the product. Embossed metal has an irregular surface with a depressed or raised area that can hide light scratches greatly. In addition, it also has excellent anti-impact and anti-pressure suitable for high traffic areas.

Enhanced Durability

Compared with wood or glass, routine metal materials have higher durability and corrosion. The embossed finish is pressed in a 2D/3D shape on the flat metal surface. In processing, metal’s properties will be changed, enhancing its toughness and aesthetics.

Somthing about Embossed Metal You Want to Know

Embossed finish is one of the most popular decorative materials recently. It combines heat and pressure to coin the pattern on the metal surface. The method like “irons”.

Embossing metal is made distinct by its ornamental and relief texture. This is why embossing metal is sometimes also referred to as “REPOUSS”. This processing technique is the most commonly used with stainless steel. With the development of metal finishing, aluminum and copper can also be embossed.

Roller dies are significant components in the production of embossed metal plates. It usually selects seamless steel pipe. In the procession of embossing metal, it needs two different patterns of pipe, one roll for concave and another for convex.

5 Steps to emboss metal materials:

1.Choosing the mold. Embossing metal is a customized craft, and the mold is indispensable. If your pattern is unique, this process will involve die sinking. In general, the mold cost is more expensive. At TOPSON, our roller workers have rich experience producing roller dies, supporting various custom embossing patterns according to your projects.

2.Cleaning metal material. Before roll-in, the metal must be cleaned with special cleaners to remove the oil, rust, and oxide layer from its surface. If not, any defects may be extended during rolling, resulting the bad performance.

3.Conveying metal material. It is necessary to adjust and calibrate the rolling angle to ensure the metal plate is in the middle of the upper and lower rollers.

4.Roll-in. Push the metal plate at a constant speed to make sure uniform rolling. Under pressure and temperature, it will form a particular surface, and the properties of materials will be improved greatly.

5.Collection. Packaging the metal plate correctly.

Metal embossing can be applied to various metals and panel sizes. Many embossing machines are custom-made and therefore do not have industry-standard widths. Embosser-producing patterns less than 6 inches (15 cm) wide up to producing patterns 70 inches (180 cm) wide or more extensive is not uncommon.

From custom embossed shapes to textured surface finishes, selective embossing provides a great range of potential. However, there are some exceptions. Due to the brittle nature of the anodized surface, embossing will not work well on anodized aluminium.

Stainless Steel:
Stainless steel requires little repair, but daily touch will leave fingerprints and grease on its surface. TOPSON recommends using Invisible Glass Detergent to clean and Microfiber Cloth to wipe the surface for daily cleaning of embossed stainless steel.

Dawn® and Sprayway® brand glass cleaners may be used to clean stainless steel routinely. If your stainless steel is carelessly tea-staining, Krud Kutter® cleaner can help you.

Brightness and smoothness can affect the aesthetic. You can use a soft cloth dipped in ordinary household white vinegar to maintain it with occasional polishing. Unique polishing product, like Sprayway® or 3M®, is also a good option to regain the brightness of stainless steel.

Copper is one of the most popular decorative materials. The reason copper with corrosion resistance is the patina developed on its surface. Patina is the main factor affecting its color, so you must choose cleaners correctly to avoid damage during cleaning.

Wright’s® Copper Cream is gentle and non-abrasive. Its solid protective performance keeps your copper beautiful for years to come.

Flitz® Brass & Copper Tarnish Remover adopts non-flammable formula, safer than traditional acid-based cleaners. Just spray and rinse to quickly restore a brilliant shine without rubbing.

Aluminum is more easily oxidized than iron but is often used for decoration. Why? The reason is that aluminum products will form a layer of aluminum oxide on the surface to avoid further corrosion. *Can not use acidic or alkaline cleaners. If do that, you will destroy its oxide and lose its protection.

In daily maintenance, mild soap solution is one of the best choices to clean aluminum without damaging the finish. You also can use commercial aluminum cleaners to maintain the materials’ sheen.

Mothers® Mag & Aluminum Polish is a paste that adds a protective coating to aluminum surfaces. You can use it by hand or with a microfiber cloth.

Chemical Guys® Heavy Metal Polish can remove light rust stains from aluminum surfaces. It is suitable to restore aluminum’s sheen.

3D® Superior Metal Polish is one of the best cleaners to remove tough or heavy-duty dirt with little effort. It can restore shine even after long-term corrosion.

There are some restrictions to using embossed stainless steel in design and architecture:

Embossed stainless steel can be more expensive than other metals or materials, limiting its use in certain applications.

While stainless steel is generally easy to maintain, the embossed pattern can make cleaning more difficult, especially if dirt or debris gets caught in the grooves.

Embossed stainless steel is often produced in standard patterns, limiting the ability to customize the design. However, some manufacturers offer custom patterns for an additional cost.

Depending on the location, embossed stainless steel may need to be more readily available, making it challenging to source for specific projects.

Whatever your application, it is vital to ask the supplier whether a finish is suitable for a particular application prior to specification.
