Transworld Signs Introduces New Thermoformed Signs Made With Mustang® Copolyester Sheet

Kingsport, Tenn. - Eastman Chemical Company and Plaskolite, Inc., announced today that their customer Transworld Signs has introduced illuminated, rigid, thermoformed signs made with Mustang® copolyester sheet. The signs will be used at Irving Oil retail gas stations in the Canadian Maritime Provinces and the northeastern United States.

Mustang copolyester sheet, made by Plaskolite and with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester, is tough, heat- and weather-resistant, and available in clear and white. Mustang sheet made with Tritan also offers differentiated performance for sign companies, designers and brand owners because it is easy to fabricate and provides design flexibility.

“We needed a material that would provide an aesthetically pleasing sign, allow us to achieve the desired look and maintain consistency in Irving’s brand image throughout its network,” said Bill Kovacevic, vice president of research and development and product development for Transworld Signs. “By using Mustang copolyester sheet, we were able to develop a tough, long-lasting sign with high-quality designs and crisp details.”

Transworld Signs also realized energy and cost savings by using Mustang copolyester sheet to develop the illuminated signs. Mustang copolyester sheet does not require drying and is thermoformed at lower temperatures. As a result, Transworld Signs was able to decrease cycle times and energy costs, as well as expand its design possibilities by incorporating intricate shapes and designs with lower tooling costs.

“Mustang copolyester sheet provides both a technically functional product that meets the demands of outdoor signage, as well as the forming capabilities to experiment with innovative design concepts that previously had been limited by material performance,” Kovacevic said.

Plaskolite, Inc., a manufacturer of processed sheet products, is the exclusive North American manufacturer of Mustang copolyester sheet, the extruded plastic sheet made with Eastman Tritan™ copolyester.

Eastman Tritan™ copolyester also is used to manufacture products in the housewares, small appliances, reusable sports bottle, infant care and medical markets.
