Engrave Durable, Legible Signs with Rigid Engraving Stock
Norplex-Micarta engraving stock, comprised of fire-resistant melamine and phenolic resins, is a high-pressure composite material popular for engraved signage in combustible, high heat environments. The material’s surface is matched to a contrasting color core to enable sharp, easy-to-read lettering. Scott Machine offers this durable engraving stock in numerous combinations differentiated through five decorative surface colors, white or black core colors and a Lamicoid matte finish.
This rugged 3-ply material is available in thicknesses of 1/8” and 1/16”, in full 18”x 38” full sheets or 18”x 19” half-sheets. We can also saw to your specs as sign blanks or profile cut it for use as pushbutton labels, equipment panel I.D.’s and other applications.
Meeting the Standards of ASTM D709
Reliable Norplex-Micarta stock meets ASTM D709 specifications for laminated thermosetting materials that feature two or more plies of reinforcing material bonded by a thermosetting synthetic resin. Because it does not melt like thermoplastic materials, you can use this melamine laminate to produce attractive multi-colored signs, plaques and nameplates in areas like public buildings where high temperatures and fire safety are big concerns. The material’s Lamicoid Satin, or flat matte, surface ensures a professional look that’s easy to maintain.
Signage That’s Tough to Resist
When you need to beat the heat, the choice is rugged and rigid Norplex-Micarta phenolic engraving stock that rises to the occasion along with the temperatures. Use this popular heat-resistant engraving material for pipe markers, valve tags and electrical control panels in engine and boiler rooms…or wherever hot environments are an issue.
