These cuffs are .040 gauge aluminum with a
black anodized coating applied to one side of them. The black side is
super nice, and even has a protective plastic sheeting attached that must be
removed before use. (just peel off, super easy) I first purchased this
black aluminum as a special request to make engraved memorial bracelets....and
it was so nice that we decided to add it to our regular line of cuff blanks.
These are a slightly thicker/heavier weight of aluminum than our regular
blanks, but by no means *heavy*; still a very comfortable weight! A word about
the black finish; this is not a run of the mill painted on color....it is
a VERY tough coating that will NOT flake or peel off!! It's even hard to
scratch through; I once accidentally sliced through the protective coating with
an exacto knife (was using the sheet of black as a table to cut some
cardboard...not my smartest decision lol) and when I peeled the coating off,
was astonished to find the surface of the black unharmed! So I'd have
to say it's pretty darn scratch resistant! :)
These blanks are 1/2" x 6". (.5" x
6") and are made from sturdy .040 anodized aluminum.
You may choose round or square corners as well as whether
you want them to be rolled into the cuff shape or shipped flat before you add
them to the cart. The last option is to pick if you want the black on the inside of the cuff or the outside of the cuff.
