Being a durable material, Lexan is often used for outdoor applications. It is a heat-resistant material, therefore it can be placed under the sun without changing its forms. Also, it is a shatterproof material and can withstand all types of weather conditions.
Lexan is one of the most durable types of plastic materials. Though it has some similarities with glass and Acrylic, it is triple durable than these two. The material is flexible and does not break from any pressure.
Lexan is a thermoplastic material, meaning it can easily be shaped with heat. This feature gives us the ability to achieve all types of shapes with the Lexan material.
Lexan comes in rolls, which means you can get the material in custom sizes.
As for the thickness, it is 3/16".
Although Lexan looks like glass, it has flexibility which glass does not have. This feature helps the material to stay safe and sound in case of pressure and all types of weather hazards.
Usually, outdoor signs have one purpose, which is to promote. Below see some outdoor signage options made of Lexan. Lightbox Signs These are LED Illuminated Cabinets that are made of Aluminum frame and Acrylic or Lexan face. As the aim of the sign is to transfer light, Lexan is the perfect material for that. The material provides perfect light transmission up to 85% and gives durability to the sign. Channel Letters Illuminated Letters are made of the same material as Lightboxes. The back and the sides of the letters are Aluminum, while the face part is either Lexan or Acrylic. Lexan again serves for the same purpose, to transfer light. Pylon Signs Plaza Signs are tall free standing signs often displayed in front of shopping or business centers, on the sides of highways to provide high visibility.
