Sand Cast Bronze Plaques

Skolnick Memorial PlaqueSand cast bronze plaques are a traditional material for memorials and commemorative markers.

The plaque at left is 17" wide by 25" high. It weighs 55 lbs. The artwork was adapted from a photograph by one of our artists. It's a stunning piece of art in its final installation.

Plaques are typically between 3/8 to 7/16 inch thick. Because we use computerized type setting, your plaque can be made using thousands of different type faces limited only by the accuracy of the sand molding process. You can incorporate two dimensional black and white art. In addition, bas-relief busts and other sculptural artwork can be added to plaques.

To calculate the estimated weight in pounds of your bronze plaque, figure the area in square inches (length times width). Multiply the area times 0.1238. This is the weight in pounds.

Our bronze plaques are normally made in silicon bronze (UNS C87500) unless you specify otherwise. Plaques can also be made in aluminum for weight and cost savings.

  • These are substantial pieces that will speak through the ages.
  • Bronze is corrosion resistant. Typical bronze plaques will last thousands of years. Little maintenance is required if you allow it to develop its natural patina.
