HDPE ColorCore® with a red core and yellow cap is a versatile, durable and colorfast plastic used commonly for signage applications. It is environmentally and UV stabilized to withstand even the harshest outdoor conditions and can be used in areas that are washed often or regularly exposed to moisture. HDPE ColorCore® can be fabricated using common woodworking tools and techniques.
Unlike other signage materials where color is achieved through lamination, HDPE ColorCore® is manufactured by a unique PolyFusion™ process that fuses various layers of color into a single homogeneous sheet, which embeds color into the plastic. HDPE ColorCore® is guaranteed not to delaminate, crack, or chip and is available in several gauges and many matched and paired colors. Custom colors are available by order; large minimums may apply for custom runs.
ColorCore®’s thin cap layers (approximately 10% of the thickness on each side) and bright primary colors (approximately 80% of the core) make ColorCore® ideal for signage, marine, playground and other recreational applications. Due to its thin cap, ColorCore® sheets are easy to engrave and machine.
ColorCore® sheets are made with high-impact-resistant polymers in order to handle more day-by-day abuse than conventional sign materials. ColorCore® is environmentally stabilized for high-pressure accessories and components in both commercial and industrial applications. Due to its unique composition, ColorCore® outlasts other standard signage—such as wood and vinyl signs—with virtually zero maintenance.
ColorCore® resists marking by pens, markers and spray paint, and can be cleaned easily with regular household cleaners. Its durable textured finish also resists scratching and marring.
UV Stabilization and Weather Resistances
This product is UV stabilized to resist deterioration in harsh outdoor environments, making ColorCore® the perfect signage material. And unlike other signage materials, it’s water resistant and won’t delaminate, swell, crack or rot.
