Vycom introduces thicker gauge Celtec material at ISA Sign Expo

Vycom Corp., a market-leading manufacturer of highly innovative plastic sheet products, is pleased to announce the expansion of its Celtec® premium signboard line to include thicker materials now available in extruded gauges up to 38 mm. The entire line of Celtec material – including these new thicker gauges – will be on display in the Vycom booth 4853 at the ISA Sign Expo 2019, April 24-26, in Las Vegas.

The Celtec line of premium signboard solutions is designed for wide format display applications that demand the highest quality sign materials. These thicker gauge additions expand the Celtec line by adding 32 mm (1.25”) and 38 mm (1.5”) sheets, making this product family the most complete in range of thicknesses – from 1 mm to 38 mm – for extruded PVC sheets available from a single manufacturer.

Premium product now in thicker gauges with same low maintenance and easy fabrication Celtec thicker gauge material can be screen or digitally printed, routed, painted or varnished, and is an ideal substrate for indoor or outdoor signage in high traffic areas where durability is key. This material offers high durability with a premium print surface that is more weather, impact, and insect resistant than wood, and will not warp, cut or split. It is easier to fabricate than using multiple laminated or glued sheets and is more durable than high-density urethane (HDU) materials commonly used in outdoor signage. Celtec thicker gauge material stands up to heavy use and weather, reducing replacements costs.

Indoor and outdoor applications
Celtec thicker gauge material is a great fit for indoor applications where a thicker material is desired. It is ideal for outdoor applications such as monument or wayfinding signage and lends itself to a number of fabrication techniques. Matched installation components including posts, wraps, and caps are available. It can be used wherever a more substantial material is required such as cut letters for offset signage.

Celtec: improved throughput in finishing
At the core of the Celtec line is its high-density construction that lends itself to a variety of fabrication processes. Consistent craftsmanship in manufacturing ensures print service providers always receive sheets with dependable quality.

Celtec premium signboard is designed to reduce manual touchpoints in the finishing stage. Its high-density construction ensures clean edges after cutting or routing, eliminating the time-consuming step of manual deburring. The substrate’s surface promotes superior ink adhesion, reducing chipping or cracking after cutting that can lead to substrate and ink waste; and ensuring an increased yield of sellable prints.

Celtec products deliver consistency in flatness and gauge, resulting in distortion-free printing and effectively eliminating head strikes. Quality construction provides for a range of finishing processes including knife- and die-cutting; select Celtec sign material can also be thermoformed.
