Mastercut signage is predominately manufactured with deep acid etched stainless steel, generally colour filled. Various thicknesses are available and all signs are cut to virtually any shape using our state of the art Fibre Laser.
Acid etched signs are one of the hardest wearing, longest lasting signs on the market and are perfect for high traffic areas in public places. The signs can also be rejuventated to their original glory with minimum fuss and cost involved - And they look great...
Acid etch and paint fill
Our most popular method of manufacturing signs. These are one of the longest lasting signage types on the market. They can be made from virtually any thickness Stainless Steel, Copper or Brass.
In The Acid Etching process, a mask or resist is used to create the image, then the plate is run through an etcher until the desired depth is achieved - Generally 0.3mm.
Once etched the low points are then filled with a very strong 2 pack automotive paint in virtually any colour.
Signs can come with threaded studs welded to the rear for easy mounting, or we can design a mounting option for you.
Acid etch and paint fill - High Detail
This method shows how an image can be re produced with the etching process. Virtually any image can be used and we etch it deep into the material surface and fill with 2 pack paint.
This type of signage is used widely in the interpretive arena, and can be reproduced in Stainless Steel, Brass and Copper.

Brass etch and chemical blacken
Brass etching works the same way as the Stainless Steel method, however in this instance, the etch is filled using a chemical blackening process. This is a hard wearing product that is great for text heavy signs or labels.
A 2 pack clear coat is generally applied to the entire sign to keep the brass looking new for years to come.
Anodised aluminium is one of the hardest wearing processes available for full colour signs.
Inks are soaked deep into the aluminium pores, then the pores are closed and sealed to keep the colours in. They are highly vandal resistant and due to the image being embedded into the surface, the signs have a vibrant metallic look that only anodising can achieve.
Etch and laser cut
This is showing what etched stainless steel looks like with no paint infill. This really is a long lasting way to manufacture signs, as there is nothing that can wear on this, so the expected life of these is virtually unlimited.
This particular samples shows how we can etch parts and laser cut parts on the same panel to create a unique style of signage.
Corten steel is a metal that is specifically designed to give surface rust, but never rust through. This steel has been ever gaining in popularity over the past 10 years and is now specified in many projects.
This sample has the leaves and letters cut through - and the trunk in stainless steel to give a nice contrast in colours.
Mastercut have been at the forefront of design and manufacturing using corten. you can view our corten wall that we made in Sydney Click here
We have also been acid etching and paint filling Corten for a few years with great results - We will post more about that soon....
Laser Marking is often referred to as Laser Etching. Lasers will not "Etch" into the material at all, instead, they mark the surface of the substrate by burning the image in. This process is best used on labels and plaques that are used indoors. Laser marking is not recommended for exterior applications as it is affected by UV light and will fade away in a relatively short amount of time. And yes, this is the case for all laser marking. If you are after a permanent etched result, then acid etching is the only process that will achieve this
This method is recommended for labels and plaques where a non permanent solution is required. It is a relatively cost effective method to achieve a result. Whilst we do manufacture this, it is not recommended for signs.
