Graphic Impact E-Panel Sign

E-Panel and Di-Bond. The Right Outdoor Solutions

Investigate E-Panel for full color printing for interior and exterior applications. E-panel is an aluminum composite board that is a less expensive version of Di-bond and is manufactured in China. It is made with two pre-painted sheets of 0.2 mm aluminum with a solid polyethylene core and comes in 3mm and 4mm total thicknesses. The 3mm thickness is available in single or double sided versions, with the double sided version having painted white faces on both sides and the single sided being plain aluminum on the back. The 4mm thickness is only available double sided. E-Panel is for flat graphics only and is not recommended for bending into 3D shapes like Di-Bond.

The e-panel aluminum faces have a baked gloss white finish which makes them excellent for direct printing or for mounting of printed graphics. Excellent for indoor, or long term outdoor use, they are popular for exhibits, display fabrication, signage, and POP displays. Available in 48” x 96” sheets.

Indoor longevity of 5-25 years, outdoor longevity of 2 to 5 years.  Use Graphic Impact’s clear coating  process to extend durability.

Favorite features

E-Panel is thin but strong and flat and cuts very cleanly when die cutting irregular shapes. It is impervious to weather and is suitable for long term outdoor use, so it’s possible to change graphics and continue to use the board. The smooth white faces are excellent for direct printing and is eco-friendly.

Drawbacks of E-panel

E-Panel has some flex in the material, especially under wind loads. If installed as a sign face in routed channels, and the channels aren’t deep enough to allow for this flex, the material can bend enough to come out of the channels.
