Bright White Foam PVC Sheet

A premium foam PVC sheet with a harder bright white surface.

Lightweight, versatile and durable this foam PVC has endless applications in sign, display and print.

Bright White Foam PVC has been developed in consultation with digital equipment manufacturers and ink producers to ensure maximum compatibility with evolving digital technologies. Utilising an innovative colour formulation, it contains a finely balanced blend of optical pigmentation to produce a brighter white substrate which optimises reproduction capabilities for outstanding print clarity and quality.

Manufactured to exacting tolerances, the ultra smooth, semi matt surface finish of the material provides a consistently even, reliable surface for digital printing. The flat consistent surface works in harmony with machine calibrations to facilitate faster quality output to maximise productivity.

A uniform, expanded closed cell structure gives this sheet a hard, flat surface, providing exceptional rigidity and mechanical properties for intricate die cutting and routering. The durable surface provides excellent resistance to knocks and scratches at the point of display.

A brighter white base material, the colour pigmentation of this material has been specifically formulated to provide exceptional colour reproduction throughout the spectrum, to achieve maximum stand out for print and display applications. The pigment formulation has been painstakingly innovated to provide the maximum levels of UV stability in the ink curing process to produce outstanding image quality and the highest standards of digital reproduction for demanding colour imaging requirements.
