Custom Dibond Signs

Dibond is created by permanently bonding two sheets of aluminum onto a solid plastic core. This adds thickness and strength to the sign without adding a lot of weight.

  • Wide range of finishes
  • Rust-proof and Rot-proof
  • Great for custom shapes

Are Custom Dibond Signs Right For You?

Dibond Material Cross-Section

How can you find out for sure if dibond is the right material for your project? Learning the distinguished components of the dibond sign material is the key.

The Dibond sign material is made of both the aluminum and plastic sign material. Two factory-painted sheets of aluminum are permanently bonded to both sides of a high density plastic core, sandwiching the plastic sign panel in between.

The solid plastic core adds body, thickness and rigidity to the sheet while allowing it to remain lightweight. In fact, Dibond custom signs have 10 times more strength than a sheet of .040" aluminum making it the 4th strongest sign panel (ARMOUR-Wood metal signs are #1 in panel strength) yet the material weighs only 32 pounds for an entire 4' x 8' sheet.
