Eagle’s BronZinc – the brand new sign system

12.10am 10th March 2008 - Corporate

Eagle’s BronZinc is a brand new kind of signage finish. A liquid metal coating that can be cold sprayed onto zinc panels, BronZinc looks like bronze cast but retains high resolution detail, is less expensive than pure bronze and yet extremely durable.

“We have not just created a new product; we have created a new signage technique,” says Eagle’s Philip McInley, “Stoving and powder coating are relatively old fashioned techniques compared with metal and resin-based surfacings. BronZinc has the advantages of the durability and hardness of bronze, but with the cost advantages you gain by applying it as a metal powder-based resin to zinc panels.”

An 8 year guarantee
Eagle is providing an 8 year guarantee with its new BronZinc signage system. Using the proper choice of substrate and correct application, BronZinc test results indicate a zero breakdown, a rate that’s equivalent to a 30 year lifetime. This is why Eagle say it has no problem in offering a long term guarantee on this product.

BronZinc is a patented metallizing process that is cold-sprayed and comprises up to 75% pure metal. It’s a new kind of coating compared to other surfacing treatments such as chrome plating, unfinished foundry metal, metallic paint finishes and other surfacing processes. The coating process is a perfect addition for Eagles zinc plates, because it enhances detail and protects without reducing resolution.

And from the club’s perspective, BronZinc’s appeal lies in the comparative cost, quality and sheer style. For high profile golf clubs like The Addington, BronZinc offers the best design solution for course signage.
