Plastics

Plastics are used as sheet material for signs, front plates, and front panels and as film material for front films, keyboard films, and labels. Plastics are also used as protective films, laminates, or casting resins.

In most uses, industrial signage made of plastic is less durable than industrial signage made of metal. However, they offer extensive options for variations in material properties, colours, and shapes.

Properties and benefits

  1. Virtually unlimited colour options
  2. Properties can be influenced by the choice of material
  3. Low weight
  4. Non-conductive
  5. Usually less expensive than metal
