Signage - top

Celtec provided a safe, economical alternative for indoor and outdoor signs, especially in high traffic pedestrian areas.  Lightweight and easily painted, celtec sheets provide "An Easy to install, Safe" outdoor sign.



Difficult trade show exhibits will meet their match with celtec.  If displays require vertical or horizontal construction or banner type signs, celtec's light weight, and ability to hold graphic brightness and detail make it an ideal choice in producing exhibits.  The material's ability to reduce noise allows it to be incorporated as an ideal solution for office enclosures at shows.


Photo Mountings and Wall Maps

The long lasting, non-warping, corrosion resistant characteristics of celtec combined with the material's ability not to absorb water, make it the perfect choice for photo mountings.  Wall maps printed on celtec maintain their clarity and sharpness.


Stage Setting

Professional Theatre, Motion Picture and Stage Set Designers use celtec with confidence.  It's the perfect choice since celtec meets all three tough U.L. 1975 Fire Test requirements.



Easily fabricated in an unlimited range of shapes, celtec offers a unique solution to producing Game Boards.  Graphics are easily applied using virtually any method.  Impact-resistant low flammability, and high strength give celtec the advantage as an ideal game board material.
