KOMATEX is a lightweight closed-cell, free foam, rigid PVC sheet. It is homogeneously colored with a matte finish that is tough and versatile enough for many of today's applications. KOMATEX is available in 12 standard vibrant colors, plus black and white, and a variety of thicknesses and sizes to fit most uses. The matte surface is the perfect substrate for screen printing, painting, laminating, vinyl lettering and forming projects. KOMATEX can be sawed, drilled, bent and fabricated using ordinary (plastic) tools and fasteners. KOMATEX is manufactured to be used for interior and limited exterior applications.
For many years, rigid PVC and PVC foam sheets have proven their value as building material for advertising signs, site boards as well as transparencies or displays, and when used outdoors they have proved very reliable, even when faced with different climatic and environmental conditions. KOMATEX is weather-resistant (as well as moisture- resistant) which accounts for their high suitability for outdoor applications. This means that their original quality will remain unchanged for years. The white sheets are color-fast. A change in the color (fading) of dyed sheets might occur as the result of a higher absorption of solar radiation. Sheets used outdoors (e. g. signs) should have a light surface (white, light grey, etc.). Large-surface, dark-coloured signs should not be used, as they, like any dark-coloured object, absorb considerable solar radiation and as a result may be damaged.
KOMATEX is the preferred PVC sheet for uses requiring the following characteristics: Chemical and corrosion resistance, Moisture resistance, very low water absorption (will not rot), low flammability (UL-94 VO flame rating), perfect for tradeshow and exhibit hall use, Thermal and sound insulation (absorbs vibrations and oscillations), Approved for use where food is processed or sold, Similar surface finish on both sides of the sheet, Matte surface: ready to accept most inks, paints and vinyls, Ease of fabrication with ordinary plastics hand tools, Easily bonded to similar material and many other materials.
