Urethane - (Three Dimensional Signage)
Steve’s Signworkx uses (but is not limited to) a revolutionary High Density, urethane, carving foam (HDU). HDU is the core product used in most signs. Its lightweight and lasting durability to the elements makes this product superior to any carving products in the past. HDU is used to Replicate sand blasted red wood, brick and stone work, Carved objects such as, detailed frame work, realistic stone letters, roman pillars or whater three dimensional image that you need. The possibilities are endless.We stock a wide variety of sign materials for our mixed media and dimensional signage solutions including acrylics, wood laminates, plastics and vinyl. Some of the more common materials used in both routed and sandblasted style dimensional signage are HDU (high density urethane) and clear grade red cedar.
HDU foam is an ideal material that is 100% waterproof, unaffected by temperature and will not rot or decompose. High Density Urethane material is preferable on most projects, and is a must on outdoor sign projects.
Urethane foams will not warp, crack, or bow like solid wood when exposed to the elements. It is slightly lighter that wood, which might be a consideration for a suspended sign, and saves in shipping. HDU Sign foam can be seamlessly laminated together to create any size shape or form.
