Industry-Leading Graphic Overlay Manufacturing Processes, Finishes & Materials
We have been manufacturing quality graphic overlays since 1974, gaining the trust of clients across a range of market sectors.
- Processes: Our graphic overlays can be either silkscreen printed or digitally printed on the rear of the clear material and viewed from the front — ensuring durable, robust and visually outstanding end product. Colours can be matched to recognised colour specifications or, alternatively, you can provide us with a sample.
- Finishes: To suit the intended environment and application, the surface finish of your graphic overlay can be selected from a variety of different textures. Our team is on hand throughout the design process to ensure an overlay that suits your needs. This may include hard-wearing coatings, transparency and gloss coatings. You may also wish to incorporate your corporate and brand identity.
- Materials: To protect the display and switches, our graphic overlays are manufactured from UV-resistant polycarbonate, hard-coated polycarbonate or durable polyester. Compared to traditional nameplates, graphic overlays can be manufactured with transparent components and the option to choose various textured and lacquered finishes.
What Are Graphic Overlays Used For?
Graphic overlays are popular for protecting control panels from everyday knocks and abrasions. Control panels situated outdoors may be exposed to harsh environmental conditions, justifying a graphic overlay. These products can also be applied to switch panels and other laminated switchboards. They are commonly used in the marine, security, medical and electronics industries.
