We believe Blast-Etched® Melamine signage delivers the most value of any product we offer. It combines beauty, durability and economy. It is particularly well suited for schools, public buildings, hospitals, and other high traffic facilities. Blast-Etched® Melamine is available in thicknesses of 1/8” (BE100) or 1/4” (BE101).
The base material is a melamine surface on a phenolic resin core bonded together at high temperature and high pressure to form a durable sign blank. Text and graphics are masked and the background is abrasively etched to the ADA compliant depth of 1/32”. Our Blast-Etched® process creates both crisp graphics and domed Grade 2 Braille. The result is a one-piece sign that is very difficult to deface. Our optional “Vandal Resist” matte clear coat provides additional graffiti protection.
Blast-Etched® Melamine can be used for a wide variety of applications, including building identification, directories, changeable message signs, insert / window signs, and floor directional signs.
Blast-Etched® Melamine provides the maximum flexibility of color combinations. Choose your text and background color from any Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, Glidden, PMS colors, or send us any non-metallic color chip to match at no charge. We also offer a metallic color matching service. Standard text colors are white and black.
We can produce your Blast-Etched® signs in any custom shape and we offer optional inset or flush borders, beveled or bull nosed edges. Blast-Etched® logo’s create a very affordable upgrade to enhance your custom signs. Insert / window signs are available in the BE101 series and include a non-glare acrylic lens. Changeable message sign sliders are background color.
