Sintra® PVC Plastic is only ONE of the many types of plastics available.
We've been providing rigid, Sintra Plastic Signs for almost 30 years so I have some worthy insights to share.
Air is one of the main ingredients!
The sign industry refers to this material as "Foamed PVC Plastic". Air is injected into the hot molten plastic liquid creating a hot foam mixture that hardens into a sheet, when cooled.
All that air is what makes this plastic lightweight, which is great for all sorts of applications - just not outside. PVC Plastic is NOT recommended for outdoor use because it is not a UV stable plastic. Yet many sign companies still sell PVC Signs for outdoor use which ends up warping. The thermal heat radiated from the sun causes the plastic to EXPAND and contract. All that movement, day after day in the sun, causes distortions in the plastic.
There are far better solar-grade sign materials to use outdoors, that cost the same.
When you need a standard indoor plastic sign for everyday use, here are some of the most popular applications:
- Retail & Display Signs
- Business & Office Signs
- Warehouse & Factory Signs
- LEAN Manufacturing Signs
- Safety Signs
- Point-of-Purchase Signs
- Sale & Promotional Signs
- Identification Signs
- Trade Show Signage
- Hanging Signs
- Directional Signs
However, you are not limited to just these uses. Whatever your indoor signage needs are, standard Sintra plastic provides a durable, cost-effective option.
If you are looking for an outdoor sign, I recommend Alumalite, ARMOUR-Wood, Coroplast, Dibond, Aluminum or Dura-Wood materials instead.
