Exclusively from Grimco, MAXMETAL Aluminum Composite Panel (ACP) leads the market for quality, value and dependability. For the past 12 years, MAXMETAL has been a leading brand in the sign and graphics industry.  Our passion for producing ACP panels engineered specifically for the sign market have led thousands of sign and graphics professionals to choose MAXMETAL for its trusted quality and results.

Whether you are making sign blanks, routing letters, direct printing or fabricating architectural signs, MAXMETAL delivers maximum performance with maximum results.


MAXMETAL ACP is comprised of two, pre-painted .30mm aluminum panels bonded to a solid polyethylene core. It’s lighter in weight and more durable than both MDO and solid aluminum panels, and resists scratching and denting better than wood panels. The finish is ready for vinyl, screen print inks, paint, cutting or routing. 

The original flagship MAXMETAL ACP is consistently a reliable choice for your sign and graphic application needs!

The MAXMETAL portfolio can be used for a multitude of applications. MAXMETAL can be used to fabricate a variety of sign techniques and direct print options with standard digital flatbed equipment. With the flexibility of MAXMETAL across different platforms, MAXMETAL stands out above the competition with unique features!

MAXMETAL is a versatile sign substrate that’s vinyl receptive and screen printable. It can be printed on using a flatbed printer or vinyl applied for uses such as site signs, directional signs, wall signs, 3D lettering and display signs. You can utilize the standard MAXMETAL product or consider MAXMETAL DP.  MAXMETAL DP was developed specifically for digital printing and features an enhanced ink adhesion finish that provides superior adhesion with the vibrance you desire.

MAXMETAL offers fabrication-grade ACP panels that are thick and heavy duty, making them great for scoring and bending to build architectural and electrical signs. Not only can this substrate be fabricated with ease for electrical applications, it can also be used for channel letter and sign cabinet backs.

Traffic Signs
MAXMETAL is comprised of two aluminum faces and a sturdy polyethylene core which contributes to the strength, flexibility, and stability of the panel. Being lightweight yet rigid, makes MAXMETAL a great alternative substrate for traffic and way-finding signs. MAXMETAL is FHWA approved.
