Press release from the issuing company

Multi-colored HDPE sheets for dimensional signage and artistic expression

Scranton, Pa. – Vycom Corp., a market-leading manufacturer of highly innovative plastic sheet products, will demonstrate how its Polycarve® multi-colored high-density polyethylene (HDPE) sheets can be used in signage and graphics applications at the upcoming ISA Sign Expo. Available in five standard color combinations, the Polycarve line includes a contrasting core color that – when the top layer is routed – becomes visible, providing an ideal solution for dimensional artistic expression, wayfinding or outdoor-durable signage. Polycarve material will be on display in the Vycom booth 4853 at the ISA Sign Expo 2019, April 24-26, in Las Vegas.

Easy to fabricate, no special tools required
With Polycarve material, sign makers can create dimensional, color contrasting signage using the same familiar routing and woodworking tools already in use. This material is smooth to the touch and can be shaped using basic tools, providing the ability to create rounded corners, smooth edges, and colors that won’t bleed or leach.

Low maintenance, high durability
Polycarve material is easy to clean and offer excellent scratch and vandal resistance. Offering superior weatherability and moisture resistance, this material provides 30 years of outdoor durability that won’t fade, delaminate, chip, rot or swell when exposed to direct Southern U.S. sunlight and other extreme weather conditions. This same material is used in the company’s Playboard® line designed for use in playgrounds, ice rinks, and skate parks, and is proven to stand up to the weather and vigorous use. Polycarve materials stand the test of time by reducing replacement costs while looking crisp through the life of the sign.

Wide variety of indoor or outdoor applications
Polycarve material gives sign makers the ability to expand their offerings with dimensional and color contrasting options that make their clients’ signs stand out in both indoor and outdoor applications. Ideal for indoor applications such as alert placards and directional or wayfinding in high traffic areas, it can also be used outdoors for signage applications in marine, playground, park, golf course, amusement park, campground, city / village / neighborhood environments and more. Five different color combinations are available to suit nearly any clients’ unique brand of messaging.
