Polyester Overlays

Durable Enough for the Toughest Equipment Applications

MPC's Polyester Overlays are an ideal choice in applications requiring high tensile strength, dimensional stability and versatility. Easily printed and die-cut, these plastic panel overlays also offer resistance to chemicals, abrasion, and tears, with performance that withstands a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels. Optional finishes can be added for increased durability.

Polyester overlays can be used as the front panel of a one-part panel overlay or two-part panel construction, and are frequently used to protect and graphically enhance membrane switch assemblies. Our polyester overlays consist of a polyester face stock up to .010" thickness with graphic elements, fabricated to your panel design. For a two-part panel construction, the polyester graphic overlay is assembled to an identically fabricated thicker supporting aluminum or stainless steel back panel.

           

 

Why Choose MPC's Polyester Overlays?

  • Strong dimensional stability, with high resistance to shrinkage, tears, abrasion and chemicals, and moderate resistance to heat.
  • Graphics are digitally or screen-printed on the second surface for maximum durability.
  • Able to host clear windows.
  • Expected exterior life of up to seven years. Color graphics have limited UV resistance and will gradually degrade in long-term sunlight exposure. Not recommended for long-term outdoor use.
  • High-performance adhesives and/or holes for mechanical attachment.
  • Precision fabrication in our machine and print shops to your design specifications.
