We offer Corflute in 3mm or 5mm thickness and it can be cut to any size required. 3mm Corflute is an inexpensive thinner fluted PVC board with fluted texture in its faces. It is designed for short term signage. 5mm Corflute is a thicker fluted board and is more rigid.
Corflute is very flexible across the fluted direction so it works well for three-sided signage or wrap-around signage. For a more rigid sign PVC board may be a more suitable substrate.
Indoor corflute signs will last for years. Outdoors, if exposed to high levels of UV and weather the life expectancy can be less than 12 months. Lamination is used to protect graphics, reduce reflection or to allow graffiti to be removed. If you want your signs to last for many years outside or to protect them from graffiti, request a suitable protective laminate.
Alternatives to Corflute are foamed PVC board, Aluminium Composite Panel (Alupanel) and numerous other more durable substrates.
Why Choose Corflute Sign Printing For Your Business?
It is versatile and attractive. The distinct pattern caused by the production process of Corflute makes these signs stand out well. Being plastic, they allow for bright, colourful digital printing. For a sign with a smoother finish, consider using Y Flute or PVC.
Corflute is portable. Attached to a round bar with a couple of cable ties, your Corflute sign can be stuck in the ground and pulled out and moved to a new location easily.
Corflute is customizable. Choose either a 3mm or 5mm thickness and single or full colour print. Generally rigid panels come in a standard 2400mm x 1200mm sheet size.
