Palram’s PALIGHT® and PALCLEAR® PVC sheets will extend your customer’s capabilities in digital printing, display and fabrication work. We offer the broadest product line with more innovative features than any other manufacturer. And now with our new production line, we have a faster turnaround on run-to-size orders so you can meet your customer’s demands.
Top Choice Sheets. Every Choice Your Customer Needs.
Lightweight and durable, Palight Premium has uniform smoothness, superior brightness and ink adhesion. It’s available in thicknesses up to 25 mm, an array of color choices and custom sizes up to 80” wide. It’s even available with a woodgrain texture to add more character and dimension to signage. Is your customer looking for a cost-effective alternative for a less demanding project? Offer Palight EPS. While less expensive, it still provides a high quality print and is great for lamination work.
Other unique products include our new Palclear Transparent PVC with water-clear clarity and excellent ink adhesion — without the use of adhesion promoters. This can save printers both time and money! And Palight Outdoor offers the workability of wood, with maximum UV protection and a limited 25-year warranty.
Palight Premium and Palclear are also both available with EverClean™ protective film, ensuring a pristine sheet and reducing waste. ((protective film photo)). Yet another example of the value you can bring to your customers with Palram’s full PVC line. And our products have been tested and approved by some of the biggest digital printer and cutting system manufacturers in the world.
