Weatherproofing

Weatherproofing

Weatherproofing is achieved through a combination of our use of colourfast solvent inks, lamination and coating, and is applicable to both foamex mounted displays and outdoor posters. Vinyl banners are waterproof as standard.

Posters
On large format poster work where the item is to be pasted onto an outdoor billboard or exposed to the elements, a specialist durable 'blue-back' opaque paper is used to avoid 'show through'. This material in conjunction with a coating ensures the life of the poster through most weather conditions with a guarantee against fade for up to 5 years.

Where a poster is required to be used in outdoor pavement sign 'A' boards a laminate is recommended. However, for a longer life we recommend producing 'A' board posters on a 180mic Polyprop material which is completely waterproof. If you would like further details on this please call.

Display Panels & signage
Once laminated our foamex display panels are also waterproof and guaranteed against fade for up to 5 years. Hence they are very suitable for economical short term exterior signage where the information is likely to change within 2-3 years.

Vinyl Banners
All our vinyl banners are produced on waterproof vinyl and guaranteed against ink fade for up to 5 years.
