Consider exploring E-Panel for vibrant full-color printing in both indoor and outdoor settings. This aluminum composite board is a cost-effective alternative to Di-bond and offers great value. It consists of two pre-painted sheets of 0.2 mm aluminum sandwiching a solid polyethylene core, resulting in total thicknesses of 3mm or 4mm. The 3mm option comes in single or double-sided, with the latter featuring white painted faces on both sides and the former sporting plain aluminum on the back. The 4mm version is exclusively double-sided.
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.
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.
