E-Panel is an aluminum sign panel that has a SOLID plastic core. 3mm (1/8") thick E-Panel is highly rigid and sturdy. Very similar to Dibond, E-Panel offers a better price point with slightly thinner aluminum face.
3mm E-Panel is a rigid composite material that is lightweight, durable, and has a super smooth surface that is excellent for high resolution printing. E-Panel is an aluminum composite material (ACM) that is comprised of two pre-painted sheets of .008" aluminum with a solid plastic core. E-Panel is completely rustproof, waterproof, rot proof and chemically resistant, making these perfect for indoor or outdoor use! Street Signs, parking signs, real estate signs, informational signs, and essentially all signs you would use aluminum for work well using E-Panel.

Aluminum vs. E-PanelBoth are excellent sign materials,; however, because E-Panel has a composite core, it is a thicker and lighter substrate than aluminum. Additionally, E-Panel roughly half the weight compared to standard aluminum.
E-Panel vs. Dibond
The main difference between E-Panel and Dibond is that the aluminum surface of E-panel is not as thick (.008” vs. .012). Due to this difference, the aluminum on E-Panel will crack if bent or custom fabricated. Dibond is a stronger and stiffer material compared to E-Panel.
