Why The Best Metal Statues Are Made From Cast Recycled Aluminum
Cast Recycled Aluminum is the best choice among the materials you can use to make statues. While other materials, such as concrete and cement, stone, bronze, wood and resin are popular for statues, cast recycled aluminum offers multiple benefits that make it a superior material.
In addition to being rust proof and environmentally friendly, cast recycled aluminum can be cast like bronze, which means you can have your beautiful statues for a fraction of the cost. The benefits of aluminum over other statue materials go far beyond that one. Here are several of the best reasons to choose aluminum:
1) Better Value & More Affordable
Statues made from cast aluminum are just as strong as bronze, but the metal is much more affordable. Often we find by choosing cast aluminum over bronze you can save up to 80% when comparing same size statues. That adds up to a lot of extra savings on an equally fine piece of artwork for your home or commercial space—an investment that can grow in value and sentiment as time goes on.
2) Durable Like Bronze & Steel
While your cast recycled aluminum statue will cost a fifth of what you might pay for a bronze statue, it will be just as durable as bronze. It’s an especially strong material that can also be cast thick to provide additional integrity. That durability, and the fact that it’s rust proof, will ensure your statue lasts a long time. You’ll be able to enjoy your artwork and let it become a family heirloom that passes down through many generations.
3) Lighter Weight
Your aluminum statue will weigh much less than other materials like bronze, cement and concrete, wood and resin. Thanks to the lower weight, if you need to send your statue anywhere, you’ll pay much less in shipping costs. The lower weight also means that handling it during a move will be safer for movers and for your artwork—making it easier to protect your investment.
4) Easier to Move
The lighter weight of aluminum also means it’s light enough that you can move it wherever you need at any time. That helps with positioning it for placement in your home and for moving it to an entirely new location if you move or give it to someone as a gift. It will still have the heaviness of a well-cast fine art statue but will not be nearly as heavy as most other materials you could use, like concrete and bronze.
5) Attractive Bronze Look
Your cast recycled aluminum statue will be less expensive than other statue materials, equally durable, have a much lighter weight, be easier to move, and still have the beautiful look of a traditional bronze statue. Thanks to not being at risk of rusting, your statue won’t rot or degrade the way bronze and other materials can over time. You can position it in your home or business, or an attractive spot in your garden, yard or similar outdoor space, without worrying about damage caused by the elements.
