Overlays, Nameplates and Faceplates are most often made from polycarbonate (lexan). Lexan is a premium grade of polycarbonate sheet. Polycarbonate is durable and versatile. Printed on reverse it is scratch and wear resistant. Adhesive is applied to the back to ensure a lifetime application. Polycarbonate also offers excellent resistance to stains, moisture, heat, UV Rays, abrasion, and corrosive chemicals.

Polycarbonate control panels are manufactured by printing subsurface (printed on back side with reverse image). The polycarbonate is then laminated with one of our 3M adhesives on the back to allow it to adhere to almost any surface for years of trouble free service. The result is an extremely durable and attractive control panel where the printing is protected. The surface “hides” minor surface scuffs which helps to keep the “new look” over a longer period of time thereby maintaining a professional finished appearance.

Polycarbonate control panels are used to identify switches and controls on equipment. Typically, polycarbonate control panels cover membrane switches, have holes for switches and screws, clear areas for indicator lights or displays and can be cut to almost any shape to suit your needs. It can also be screen printed to match corporate colours.
