Description

King ColorCore® is a versatile multi-color engravable high-density polyethylene sheet with multiple layers of contrasting colors. It is a superior homogeneous sheet, a product of a unique state-of-the-art continuous process called Polyfusion, manufactured to the highest standards in the industry. King ColorCore® has a matte finish on both sides of the sheet. It is environmentally stabilized to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions. The polymer sheet will not rust, delaminate or rot when exposed to humidity or water. King ColorCore® is made with high-impact-resistant polymer to handle more abuse than conventional sign materials.  Its thin cap layers and bright primary colors make it ideal for signage, marine, playground and recreational applications. For maximum versatility, standard colors are made to coordinate with King ColorBoard®. King ColorCore® never needs painting or refinishing, works like wood and is easy to fabricate using common woodworking tools and techniques. The polymer is easy to engrave and machine, as the cap is approximately .050” thick.

King ColorCore® is upgradable to King MicroShield® with an advanced antimicrobial technology for protecting the product surface against stain and odor causing bacteria, algae and fungi.*
