BLACKBURNS NORWICH USE SEALWISE® TO CREATE ILLUMINATING SIGNAGE

Blackburns Norwich produce the first CNC cut sign from SEALWISE WCB®. The illuminated Pancake & Waffle Shack sign gets the thumbs up!

SEALWISE WCB® consists of completely waterproof outer skins that surround a UPVC foam core, it is light, has a low density (approx. 0.70g/cm) and retains a high rigidity - combine these attributes with an exceptional surface quality ideal for Digital printing, applying vinyl, painting and laminating and you have the perfect product for the Sign & Display industry.

BCP TRAFFIC HAS 12 YEAR GUARANTEE

Please email Guy Hammond for further information.


BCP TRAFFIC ENDORSED

BCP Traffic endorsed by all the major reflective sheeting manufacturers...
 
3M and Rennicks have both tested BCP Traffic and warrant the reflective sheeting adhered to BCP Traffic.


BCP TRAFFIC BECOMES THE FAVOURED ACM FOR ROAD TRAFFIC SIGNS

BCP Traffic conforms to EN 12899-1:2001 Part 1 and 5, and has recently undergone accelerated salt tests, during which no de-lamination occurred confirming the products 12 year warranty.


BCP TRAFFIC CONTAINS MORE ALUMINIUM

BCP Traffic contains more aluminium per square metre than alternative ACMs targeted at the traffic market...
 
BCP traffic has been designed specifically for road traffic sign manufacture with 0.5mm aluminium skins as opposed to 0.3mm usually found in alternative ACMs, which provides greater rigidity, whilst retaining all of the advantages and weight savings of traditional composites 


BCP TRAFFIC EXCELS IN SALT EMERSION TESTS

Despite scurrilous claims by an alternative ACM manufacturer, BCP Traffic has surpassed the requirements of BS EN ISO 9227:2006 which is an accelerated salt emersion test. Full results can be obtained by emailing Blackburns Signs.
