Ultrabroad Signage Material

PVC foam boards, commonly known as Ultraboard, consist of an extruded polystyrene foam core sandwiched between two polystyrene facers. This rigid and durable sign material is ideal for permanent indoor signage and can be extensively customized for various applications.

Usage of Ultraboard Sheet in Indoor Signs

Ultraboard is lightweight enough to be mounted on walls using adhesive strips or Velcro. It can also be drilled for screw-mounting or displayed on easels, making it versatile for both fixed and portable signage needs. Sheets of Ultraboard come in standard dimensions, which can be customized:

The sheets can be cut to size and shaped using a router, allowing for custom designs including plastic wall lettering in various fonts.

Color Choices

The color choices for Ultraboard are typically chosen based on what the board will be used for and where it will be installed. The base colors are:

Ultraboard typically comes with white core and facings, black core and facings, or a combination of black core with white facings (Zebra). The choice of color depends on the intended use and installation location. White facings are preferred for printing to ensure accurate and vibrant colors, while black facings may be used for specific applications like photograph mounting or hand painting.

Printing and Finishes

Graphics are applied to Ultraboard using digital printing with CMYK UV inks, ensuring clear and sharp images on the smooth surface of the board. Alternatively, designs can be printed on pressure-activated vinyl film and then applied to Ultraboard. Lamination with matte or glossy finishes provides additional protection and enhances the appearance of the signage.

Durability and Installation

Ultraboard signs are designed to last over ten years indoors. They are moisture-resistant, resistant to warping, corrosion, and scratches, and have a high-impact core. The PVC material is also 100% recyclable. However, Ultraboard is not suitable for prolonged outdoor use as it can crack under extreme weather conditions. It can be temporarily used outdoors in sheltered areas but should be stored indoors.
