New GATORFOAM® SELF-ADHESIVE graphic display board has been introduced by 3A Composites USA as an easy mounting solution for projects that require the extreme rigidity, strength and durability offered by this high-performance rigid substrate.
GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE consists of black extruded polystyrene foam bonded between two layers of black wood-fiber veneer, one side coated with a pressure-activated high-tack adhesive that offers permanent bonding.
GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE eliminates the need for pressure-sensitive adhesive stock, saving fabricators time and material costs. This extremely rigid and durable foam board offers excellent dent and scratch resistance while its black foam center provides a clean, finished appearance to projects. GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE is a lightweight high-performance substrate that offers good dimensional stability. It routes and cuts cleanly for easy fabrication. (Simple mounting instructions are included on the board’s removable red liner.)
“We’ve expanded our line of high-performance GATOR® graphic display boards with GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE as an easy and efficient option for mounting projects,” said Chuck Kunze, director, product management and marketing, 3A Composites USA. “GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE offers the same rigidity, durability and dimensional stability that graphic designers and fabricators have come to expect from original GATORFOAM but with the added value of high-tack adhesive already applied to one side of the board. Fabricators can save time and money in materials when mounting projects on GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE.”
GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE is the ideal substrate for a variety of projects with medium-term application lives, including: point-of-purchase and point-of sale displays; exhibits and kiosks; interior signage and displays; framing; hanging signage; window displays, promotional campaigns, 3-D displays; and dimensional letters. Recommended fabrication methods include mounting, repositioning vinyl, saw cutting and routing.
GATORFOAM SELF-ADHESIVE is available with black facers and black foam in 3/16-inch, ½-inch and ¾-inch gauges in stocked 48-inch by 96-inch sheets. (Custom sheet sizes are available in minimum quantity orders.)
