Sheet material supplier 3A Composites will showcase a variety of branded products for the direct-to-substrate digital printing, exhibition, shop and furniture design, signage as well as POS/POP applications markets, at the upcoming Sign Africa and FESPA Africa Expos, taking place from 11-13 September at Gallagher Convention Centre.

These include:

PERSPEX – acrylic sheet is a useful material in the workshop because it can be used to make precision engineering components for both domestic and industrial products. Typical applications include signs, glazing, safety screening, roof-lighting, furniture, lighting fittings and a great many industrial parts. PERSPEX cast sheet is available in a wide range of thicknesses and colours, including blocks, colours and surface patterns.

DISPA – the paper board with a unique structure of embossed formed paper that gives it exceptional strength and rigidity and which is fully recyclable.

HIPEX – flawlessly extruded APET and PETG thermoplastic polyester sheets. The sheets are characterised by high impact strength, high transparency, good printability with UV curing inks as well as an easy and fast processability.

Moreover, HIPEX sheets are flame retardant, rated ‘difficult-to-ignite’ and are therefore ideally suitable for a variety of indoor and outdoor applications. For outdoor applications, 3A recommend the variants with UV protection.

IMPEX – HC – UV-protected polycarbonate sheets with a one or both sides abrasion resistant coating, which makes them especially suitable for flat indoor and outdoor applications. Thanks to this special hard coating, the sheets are less sensitive against scratches and have a high resistance to many chemicals and solvents. IMPEX – HC sheets have an ideal impact strength and are virtually unbreakable in normal use.

Entrance is free. For more information, and to pre-register online, please visit: and
