Why Is It Popular For Signs

It is cost effective and has a great strength to weight ratio. It might not have the polished look of Foamex, but it is equally weather proof and cheaper, making it ideal for all signage. It is more of an industrial product that Foamex, which is better for displays and marketing signage.

Where Can I Use Correx

Correx is 100% weatherproof, and is unaffected by changes in temperature so it can be used for outdoor applications. It is more suited to information and warning signs rather than display signs. In exposed areas the sign can be mounted to an additional wooden board to add strength, otherwise it can be prone to bending along the flutes when subject to a high wind load.

How Is It Printed

We print direct to the panel using durable UV inks. Digital printing works exceptionally well on Correx signs, enabling you to create a high quality design with a professional finish. Due to the corrugated core the surface has a very slight wavy effect.

How Can I Fix Correx

Cable ties are the most popular method. You can also use large head clout nails, screws with washers, glue or Velcro. We also have a range of sign holders specifically designed for Correx.

Can It Be Shaped

Correx can be cut to shape for cheap throwaway signs such as life size cut outs of people and products that can be used indoors or outdoors. Due to the corrugated nature you do not end up with a crisp edge but it is hardly noticeable.
