Signs made from Colorbond are well-suited for short or long-term outdoor usage, as the substrate is relatively lightweight, weather-resistant, and rust-resistant. Colorbond signs are one of the most popular choices for many signage projects. The graphics are applied with traditional signwriting or computer-cut vinyl, as both vinyl and paint adhere very well to this product.
Typical applications include the following signage:
- Factory signage
- Directional signage
- Project signage
- Shop fachsias
Colorbond – what is it?
Colorbond, as you might well guess, is a metal sign material that boasts all the benefits that Colorbond products are so well known for. This lightweight and rust-resistant substrate is one of the most rugged sign materials available, and it can be successfully folded in a sheetmetal folder if needed to produce a neat and attractive fold.
There are 3 standard size sheets that Colorbond is supplied in:
- 900 x 1800mm
- 1200 x 1800mm
- 1200 x 2400mm
From within these sizes, we can cut whatever size piece you may require for you sign project. Many large signs are constructed with multiple sheets of this product.
The thickness of the material is .55 gauge (approximately .5mm thick).
Colorbond is available is various heritage colours, although the sign-industry really only ever uses the white finished product. From its white baked-enamel coating, we generally paint the sheeting to whatever colour your sign project demands. Signs with a white background are therefore slightly less-expensive as there is no need to paint the panel!
The rear of the material is a dull grey color.
