When there is a desire to order signs, customers often face the problem of choosing materials. Outdoor advertising manufacturers offer a variety of materials. The price of finished products is different because in each case a different type of raw material is used. Customers are attracted by the robustness and reliability of the alucobond sign board. Why? Let’s talk about the features of the material of manufacture.
Aluminum Composite (APC) is like a sandwich. It has several layers. Two sheets of aluminum are taken as a basis. A polymer filler is placed between them. Then the finished material is covered with a protective layer. It can be paint or some kind of decorative coating. APC sheets vary in thickness. Their thickness is affected by a similar parameter inherent in all layers of the material. But even thicker material still weighs a little. The average weight per square meter is 3-8 kg.
Aluminum composite material has several advantages. Its virtues became the reason why it was used in the production of outdoor advertising. Note that initially it was chosen only for construction purposes. However, today it is used as a raw material for the manufacture of signs.
What are its Advantages?
1. Plasticity. Panels can be bent, deformed in 2 planes.
2. Easy handling – panels can be sawn and cut.
3. Long service life. This is real, this is facilitated by the strength of aluminum and the presence of a protective layer.
4. Low weight. As we noted above, APC sheets are lightweight.
5. A wide range of colors, textures.
An important advantageous feature is the resistance of the material to weathering. If you order an alumaboard sign, you can be sure that the sign will not deteriorate in street conditions. The material has a good stiffness to weight ratio. This combination is beneficial for sign customers.
Application in the Production of Outdoor Advertising
Manufacturing success always rests with those who react quickly to new materials. Of course, APC is not one of the new proposals. However, the one who sees the advantages in it for the production of outdoor advertising always wins. Today, aluminum composite material is widely used in the advertising field. Both internal and external signs are made of it, as well as structures that can be placed on the floor.
Sign manufacturers use a variety of material handling methods. They cut it out, glue it, fasten it, perform rolling and so on. As a result, they manage to produce signs of any shape. In addition, such a material is chosen when it is required to decorate the facades with advertising. It is used as an additional material for the production of the same volumetric backlit signage. Aluminum panels are used for the production of interior advertising compositions. It is used to make logos, company names and other attributes of corporate design. The versatility of the material allows sign manufacturers to offer a wide range of products, which is beneficial for outdoor advertising customers. And the fact that it is quite inexpensive only adds to its advantages.
