Forex is a white, rigid plastic sheet made up of PVC. It has a light but strong structure. It's an allround water resistant material that is suited for both indoor and outdoor use.
Forex is also known as hard foam PVC. It has a solid core, with on both sides a white matt finish on which we print. The panels are 5mm thick.
With Forex, we always print directly onto the panel, with a UV flatbed printer. This printing procedure guarantees the best result. After printing, we add a layer of premium matt laminate (polymere quality), providing an extra protection against scratching and damaging.
The Forex panels are water resistant, and suited for indoor and outside application. They can be used for years in all weather conditions. The material is however somewhat susceptible to extreme hot or cold temperatures. After a while it becomes less shockproof. When used outside for a very long time (4 years or longer), the material can lose some of its quality and form. It is a great choice for mid term outdoor use. And for indoor use, it serves its purpose for decades.
Mounting the Forex Citymap is easy and very stylish.
We produce a small round opening in each corner of the map. And we include beautiful chrome spacers, which can be mounted on the openings. The spacers are hollow inside, allowing to put screw or nails (not included) through them. You can also decide, for outdoor use for example, to discard the spacers and mount the Citymap with rope or straps through the openings.
