Natural white finish polystyrene letters and all polystyrene letters and logos are cut using a hot wire cutting method and are cut from HDFRA grade material containing a fire retarding additive, the letters are then cleaned lightly and are used as they are or the customer paints them or coats them in various materials of their own.
Card Faced polystyrene letters are cut and then a coloured vinyl card is applied to the face of the letters to give a smooth finish. Available in gloss or matt. The letters can also be supplied with painted sides in a matt finish using vinyl matt emulsion.
Painted Polystyrene letters are first cut and then given two layers of high quality vinyl matt emulsion paint. We use the Dulux Brand of paints because of their quality and service and their ability to match colours to BS and RAL ranges and also to Pantone colour swatches. Polystyrene letters can be faced with a chrome or gold finish or gloss vinyl card faced with white or painted sides. The card that goes on the face of the letters comes 800 microns thick and is usually glued onto the polystyrene using a solvent based contact adhesive. The card is often vinyl faced with a Hexis 5000 series Branded Vinyl in either gloss or matt. The sides of the letters are painted with an acrylic resin coating which is basically a vinyl matt emulsion. We put at least two layers of paint onto the letters for a better finish to the product
Polystyrene letters for outside use can be made to order for short term use or permanent exterior use if required for a shop sign. If the letters are required for short term use a couple layers of water based resin and two layers of masonry paint will do the job well. When the letters are required for permanent use outside, we use a higher density styrofoam painted to a matt or gloss finish.
Polystyrene letters can be faced in MDF, acrylic, aluminium composite, foamPVC or resin faced. Specialty Finishes. The exterior grade styrofoam letters when treated with a resin coating can be textured in a liquefied stone finish. The letters can be glitter coated or sand coated and painted to give a textured masonry finish or to make them look like concrete letters. For 12″ high letters we use simplefix stand off fixings and for larger letters we use brass nut and bolt stand off fixings. The letters can also be glued onto the fascia with epoxy resin. Depending on the font used the letters are often reinforced with fibreglass on the back for strength.
