We use aluminum substrate that is 0.040 thick. All the aluminum we use comes with a high quality gloss enamel coating. This kind of aluminum is ideal for small to medium size outdoor and indoor signage.
Aluma-Lite is only available on special order products and it’s not an option you can select from our site. But if you are interested in larger signs, it’s really the best sign for large, rigid signs. It’s light weight but strong and also it doesn’t rot, warp or rust. Aluma-Lite is essentially a strong aluminum to plastic CPA core trade panel. It is has unique corrugated core which will not swell, corrode from the inside or wick water thus making it an ideal material for outdoors without any need for edge sealing. If you need more information about Aluma-Lite, please feel free to contact us.
You can get either premium or standard vinyl from the range of our non-reflective vinyl products. We do have a wide selection of colors which you can easily view online and we can also special order unique colors should you request us to do so, (additional charges apply).
Both of these products are some of the best choices for outdoor as well as indoor applications:
The Standard Vinyl – this is 2mil. thick with a life expectancy of 5 to 7 years
The Premium Vinyl – this is 2.5mil. thick with a life expectancy of 7 to 10 years.
Kindly note that these are just ratings hence shouldn’t be construed as warranty.
These specifications are from the manufacturer and they indicate that if the vinyl is tested under normal conditions, the material will not crack, peel, fade or delaminate for the time duration shown. From our experience, we have observed that most vinyl will outlast the stated time periods.
