Sintra Board

Sintra PVC Board

Sintra Board is a registered PVC board that is the industry standard for over two decades. A lightweight material with a low gloss matte finish, it is durable and used for advertising, photo-mounting screen printing, and even outdoor use. It is the sign which other options are compared to, due to its high quality and common use.

The great thing about modern day signage is how many options, materials, and resources are available to consumers and businesses. Sintra signs are as specialized as other signs and can be purchased with the following options:

How thick do you want your sign? Though the thickness of a sign speaks to durability, some prefer a lightweight more movable size.

Sintra Sign Board

Through board fabrication techniques, Sintra plastic boards can be colored, cut, and shaped into whatever shape will give you the most use. Despite the multiple colors Sintra board can be found in, the starkness and contrast of white Sintra board is still a standout.

Komatex vs Sintra 

Functionally, they are very similar. Both are high end PVC plastic options, but there is a slight difference in how they are made. They also represent different companies/brands and are both registered. Similar to Sintra, they are foam based plastic and very light-weight.

Why Choose Sintra Board

Why Sintra PVC? Polyvinyl chloride, expanded cell is PVC on a homogenous sheet. Sintra pvc sheets sometimes called sentra plastic sheets are dent, cut, scrape resistant which means your sign or board can be used and appear attractive and polished over time and even when exposed to the elements. Sintra board is used for indoor and outdoor use and commonly used in trade show printing, photo booth props, real estate signage and any time he or she has to use their boards over and over again. How long Sintra board lasts against the elements is one of the reasons its so highly used. 

Heat from the weather or a normal indoor environment will not alter your sign, and the board is also chemical resistant. If you are looking to get sintra panel signs printed we can have them printed and shipped overnight with Foam Core Print!

  3. It is also great for screen printing, models, displays, exhibit booths, indoor and outdoor signs, and photo mounting.

    Can Sintra be used in building superstructuresfor big (4′) R/C model boats? Can it be glued with epoxy glues? Painted with epoxy paints? Fastened with small (#1) screws? In other words, can it be used in place of, for example, 3/32″ birch plywood?

      Sample kits are available upon request for $30, which includes shipping to any address in the U.S. Included in the sample kit is a variety of approximately 22 different products that we offer including Foamboard, Gatorboard, Aluminum Dibond, Coroplast, Vinyl Decals, and MANY more.

      All of the sample products have different Ultra high-resolution images printed direct to the material, that way you can see a full spectrum of color and true quality of our printing.

      If you are only interested in one particular product, we would suggest placing a small test order for that product that way you can get an idea of the durability of the material, along with the print quality.

    A friend gave me a recommendation to have my signs printed on Sintra vs. Chloroplast. I need (10) 24″ x 36″ signs to fit in to Signcade Deluxe A-Frame signs. These will be used outdoors. Thoughts on using Sintra vs. Chloroplast?

    1. Foam Core Print says:

      We offer 1/8″ PVC signs in our A-frames, they last much longer than coroplast signs do outdoors. Here’s the link for both products > https://www.foamcoreprint.com/sintra-signs/24×36 > https://www.foamcoreprint.com/yard-signs/24×36
