Graphic Blast MP (Melamine Plastic)

Our Graphic Blast MP ADA engraved sign system is regularly specified for interior public school and institutional applications because of the product’s performance in high-traffic environments, low environmental impact, design flexibility and affordability. The overall quality of melamine laminates are far superior to acrylics and photopolymers.
