On display will be the latest editions to its product ranges, which 'challenge visitors to consider how these new and innovative substrates offer unique qualities and benefits for a diverse range of creative sign and display applications'.

Brett Martin will introduce Marpet-a FS PET, a new range of high optical grade polyester sheets. Available in thicknesses of 2mm, 3mm and 4mm, it offers excellent strength to weight ratio; workability; chemical resistance; and fire performance. While Marpet-a FS is more suitable for flat and cold bending applications, ideally for point of purchase display stands, poster glazing and illuminated signage, it may also be thermoformed and hot line bent within a controlled temperature range to avoid crystallisation

The company will also showcase other key products in it transparent sheet range, each possessing individual characteristics and features designed to deliver 'maximum versatility, creativity and impact to every sign and display requirement'.

Marpet-g FS PETg is an ideal product for sign, display and store fixture applications, as its ability to handle a wide range of processing conditions allows for easy fabrication, printing, heating and thermoforming. It is available in thicknesses between 2mm and 10mm.
Marlon FS Polycarbonate, a highly durable thermoplastic, provides 200 times more impact resistance than glass, at a fraction of the weight. Characterised by high optical clarity, light transmission and chemical resistance, Marlon FS is ideal for illuminated signs, displays and poster covers requiring high resistance to wear and tear. It is available in a choice of thicknesses from 2mm - 15mm.

The Marcryl FS range of high gloss acrylic sheets is available in thickness of 2mm - 10mm. Combining glass-like clarity with high scratch and weather resistance, Marcryl FS has proven to be the preferred choice for high end applications – especially where a clear polished edge finish is required.
