Gatorfoam Exterior, a new offering in the Gatorboard product line for exterior graphic displays and signage designed to stand up to the elements, has been introduced by 3A Composites USA.

Like standard Gatorfoam, the new Exterior product consists of polystyrene foam bonded between two layers of wood-fiber veneer laminate, producing a lightweight, warp-resistant substrate that is smooth and offers superior dent- and scratch-resistance, 3A reports. To enhance its weather performance, it’s manufactured with a specially formulated adhesive to improve bond strength and moisture resistance.
Gatorfoam Exterior accepts direct digital printing, screenprinting, and paint; it can be saw-cut or routed. It’s available in Bright White color in 48 x 96-in. sheets in 1 and 1.5-in. thicknesses.

In addition, 3A Composites’ Omni-Flute graphic display boards are now available in five new colors: Red, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Light Blue, and Gray. Designed for short-term signage and P-O-P displays, the boards accept direct digital printing and screenprinting applications as well as paint. Recyclable, Omni-Flute can be die-cut and knife-cut and accepts repositionable vinyl graphics.

The new Omni-Flute colors are available in standard 48 x 96-in. sheets in 4-mm thicknesses. They’re also available in cut-to-order sizes with a minimum sheet size of 18 x 18 in. and a maximum sheet size of 104 x 144 in.
