SAF Announces Distributorship Agreement with GRAPHIC•AL

ATLANTA, GA... SAF (Southern Aluminum Finishing Co., Inc.) and Mitsubishi Plastics Composites America, Inc. (MPCA), headquartered in Chesapeake, Virginia, announce that SAF is distributing MPCA’s ACM materials for signage under the umbrella name of GRAPHIC•AL. The new interior/exterior materials have already been a major success in Asia and acclaimed worldwide across a multitude of applications. SAF has long been a fabricator and distributor of MPCA’s ALPOLIC® aluminum and metal composite materials. This new product line builds on SAF’s longstanding presence in the sign industry. The GRAPHIC•AL product line is comprised of four products.

Lightweight and tough, GRAPHIC•AL LT provides exceptional workability and durability in a formable panel offering many options to designers and fabricators of POP, freestanding displays, kiosks, interior and exterior signage, interior wall panels, billboards and more. GRAPHIC•AL HP is MPCA’s lightweight and formable high performance panel with a ten-year warranty designed to boost its appeal for use on exterior canopies, fascia, signage and more.

GRAPHIC•AL OR is a super lightweight, flat panel material for signage offering the rigidity of an ACM with a foamed plastic core. GRAPHIC•AL DP offers the same qualities as GRAPHIC•AL OR with the added benefit of a substrate ideal for direct printing with flatbed printers and UV curable ink.

"SAF has been providing the sign market a variety of products since 1946, but our offering have been mainly limited to small quantities of extrusions or toll finishing services,” says Penn McClatchey, Marketing Manager for SAF. “This product will enable SAF to help sign firms all over the North America."

MPCA has unveiled a new website that reflects the uniqueness of the GRAPHIC•AL line. Visitors to will confront an "out-of-this-world" presentation of the four materials’ qualities and characteristics, a sample room, fabrication videos, and even an online store to purchase fun GRAPHIC•AL gear.

As a mill-direct aluminum buyer of aluminum coil & extrusions, SAF is a contractor's most dependable choice for panels, aluminum sheet & extrusions, fabrication and aluminum coating services.
