RMS Router specializes in custom sign faces, logos
and dimensional letters.
Acrylic is excellent material to use in place of
glass for windows, skylights, doors, partitions, etc. It is lightweight,
very transparent, half the weight of glass, and is virtually unaffected
by nature. Acrylic also offers great resistance to breakage. Typical applications
include inspection windows, sight gauges, windshields, meter faces, protective
covers, safety shields, tanks, desk tops, displays, trays, and chair pads.
Flat sheet plastic offers strength and durability, and can be a great
option if your project calls for bevels or contours.
PVC or polyvinyl chloride, also known as Sintra,
is a rigid material that is chemically nonreactive. This is the premier
material for signage, displays, screening or any application that requires
a lightweight, durable colored material. Its easy-to-fabricate characteristics
make the #1 material in the sign industry. Rigid PVC is easily machined,
readily accepts paint, and performs well under most silk screening processes.
PVC is an excellent material choice for dimensional sign letters. Available
in several thicknesses, Sintra letters are easy to install with double
sided tape and silicone.
Corafoam is a rigid, high density closed-cell polyurethane
offering significant advantages over wood. It is environmentally friendly,
and can be sandblasted, routed, carved or used in any other typical wood
application. Corafoam is practically indestructible – completely
waterproof, extremely durable, and will not discolor, crack, twist, curl
or dry rot, even after long term weather exposure. High or low temperatures,
rain, snow, ice or frequent sprinkler watering have no effect on this
state-of-the-art material. It is also unaffected by solvents, and accepts
all sign paints (including lacquers).
High Density Urethane, also known as precision board,
is the original sign foam. It is perfect for three dimensional signs.
Even without a finish or sealant, HDU is waterproof and durable in all
weather conditions, so it will not warp or rot.
Plywood is a type of engineered wood made from thin
sheets of wood called plies or veneers. The layers are glued together
under heat and pressure, each with its grain at right angles to adjacent
layers for greater strength. There are usually an odd number of plies,
as the symmetry makes the board less prone to warping, and the grain on
the outside surfaces runs in the same direction. A common reason for choosing
plywood over plain wood is plywood’s superior resistance to cracking,
shrinkage, twisting or warping.
Polycarbonate is an extremely versatile material
that can represent the perfect choice for jobs requiring high impact resistance,
strength and durability. Polycarbonate sheet is manufactured in the same
exacting process as Acrylic sheet. It can be cut, machined, glued, and
screened just like acrylic. The results are clean, precise and professional
looking, with excellent longevity under a range of harsh conditions.
