Are Custom Dibond Signs Right For You?

Dibond Sign Material Up Close

The Dibond sign material is made of both the aluminum and plastic sign material. Two factory-painted sheets of aluminum are permanently bonded to both sides of a high density plastic core, sandwiching the plastic sign panel in between.

The solid plastic core adds body, thickness and rigidity to the sheet. In fact, Dibond metal signs have 10 times more strength than a sheet of .040" aluminum making it the 4th strongest sign panel (ARMOUR-Wood metal signs are #1 in panel strength), yet the material is still lightweight at only 32 pounds for an entire 4' x 8' sheet.

Here are the key points to know about custom Dibond signs:

The sign material itself is:
  • An aluminum sign panel that has a
    SOLID plastic core. (Quite similar to
    Alumalite which has a hollow, fluted,
    corrugated plastic core.) This SOLID
    plastic core provides additional
    panel strength
  • Has the broadest range of finishes
    available (including brushed gold and
    brushed silver corporate finishes)
  • Completely rustproof, waterproof,
    rot-proof and is chemically resistant
  • Lasts decades indoors
  • Can be one-sided or two-sided
  • Easy to mount (mounting kits are
  • 1/8" thick panels are strong yet
    lightweight with minimal flexibility
  • 1/4" thick panels are highly rigid and
  • Dibond outdoor signage is weather proof,
    with a high tolerance for cold and hot
    weather temperature extremes and
    heavy percipitation
  • Uncoated Economy Grade Dibond Signs are
    rated to last up to 3 years outdoors
  • Coated Standard Grade Dibond Signs are
    rated to last up to 5 years outdoors
  • Coated Premium Grade Dibond Signs are
    rated to last 6-8 years outdoors

Plus, custom Dibond Signs are highly versatile
  • You can get any size you want
  • Dibond can be cut into virtually
    any shape
  • Any design, artwork, photo or logo can be
  • And you can select virtually any
    color you want.

"I run a winery outside of San Fransisco, CA and I needed a big sign that would really stand out from all the rest. I wanted to bring out specific colors that represented what my business does, and there just wasn't much available around town. When I called TheSignChef they suggested using Dibond because of its strength and color variety.

When I got my Dibond sign, I knew I had the perfect representation for my business.

Thanks a bunch!"

Frequently Asked Questions About Dibond Metal Signs

"What is the life span for Dibond signs?"

The Dibond composite sign material will not swell, wick water, corrode, rot or delaminate even under prolonged water exposure. The Dibond material itself will outlast the artwork on your sign. Our uncoated Economy Grade Signs are rated to last up to 3 years outdoors while our Standard and Premium Grade Signs coated with an optically clear, UV Protective Lamination are rated to last up to 5 years, and 6-8 years respectively outdoors. Dibond signs can last for decades indoors.

"What is the best way to handle Dibond Signs?"

During handling and installation of Dibond signs, extreme care must be exercised. The painted finish is not as scratch resistant as you might think. Although Dibond metal signs are highly weather and fade resistant, the paint can be easily scratched if you’re not careful.

When cleaning the surface, only use a mild soapy water solution and the softest cloth you can find. Don’t use dry paper towels as they can put extremely fine scratches in the paint which may be visible up close.
