Vinyl PVC sheets

Metal Safe Sign offers a wide range of photoluminescent (PL) products and services aimed at the emergency wayfinding markets on land and at sea. The latest addition to our product range is a new product with very good properties that should satisfy many needs both on land and at sea where light-weight solutions are sought for the emergency wayfinding systems.

These phosphorescent vinyl PVC-sheets can be produced in nearly any width our customers demand. Standard-sizes are: 48” (122 cm) or 54” (137 cm). The thickness is ca. 1 mm with a semi-glossed surface. It is also possible to make the product fire-retardant by adding fire-retardant agents. The product is shipped in coils. The length of coil is decided by weight.

Regarding use of adhesives for mounting PVC signs: different adhesives should be used for different surfaces. For cleaning the surface, the usual way is to use anhydrous alcohol, isopropyl alcohol.

You may ask for quotes on prices by sending us an e-mail, use our contact form or our online catalogue.
