ACP (Aluminum Composite Panel, DiBond, Aluminum Composite Material, ACM, E-Panel)
ACP is excellent for outdoor use but a great option for indoors, too. ACP is commonly used for decorative, real estate, property, directional, road, safety, regulation, and restroom signs. ACP sign material is a composite made of both aluminum and plastic sign material. Two factory-applied electroplated white enamel-painted sheets of aluminum are permanently bonded to both sides of a high-density plastic core, sandwiching the plastic sign panel in between. The solid plastic core adds thickness and rigidity to the sheet while allowing it to remain lightweight and incredibly durable. In fact, ACP custom signs have nearly ten times the strength of a sheet of .040” aluminum, making it one of the strongest sign panels available, yet the material weighs only 32 pounds for an entire 4’ x 8’ sheet.
ACP signs are an excellent choice for indoor signage. They are fairly lightweight and can be printed double-sided, so ACP is good for hanging applications as well as being easy to mount on an interior wall. When protected from exposure to harsh elements, as in an indoor application, ACP signs can last decades.
ACP signs are ideal for outdoor signage. ACP is naturally a strong, weatherproof material that will hold up well against the elements. Because of Aluminum’s natural rust and weather resistance, ACP signs will stand up to the elements. ACP also has a high tolerance for cold and hot weather temperature extremes and heavy precipitation. Additionally, the solid plastic core gives an ACP sign added rigidity and durability, so it won’t easily bend or warp. Our standard ACP is one of the most durable on the market, boasting a thicker aluminum face than standard panels, and has a factory-applied electroplated enamel paint vs oven-baked, which means these panels will serve you for years.
Whether hanging, post/pole-mounted, placed in a sidewalk stand, or mounted to a wall, ACP signs are a stylish and durable signage choice.
