With over 10 years of experience, Nova provides the highest level of quality and reliability obtainable in the industry today. Through our continuing efforts to support the Architectural and Professional Design community, Nova has provided progressive product development and extensive product testing resulting in reliable solutions that allow for creativity, product integrity and most importantly; ADA Compliance.
All Nova Polymer materials are manufactured in the United States and pass through numerous test methods to ensure product integrity.
NovAcryl Permaglow 150 is the ideal solution for safety and egress signage concerns, as well as environmental concerns about energy savings and CO2 emissions. Permaglow 150 absorbs ambient light during the day and provides photo-luminescent emergency guidance at night. At night time, or in the event of a power outage, the photo-luminescent material instantly emits light without any electrical power. NovAcryl Permaglow 150 ensures orderly egress to and inside stairwells and exits, clearly identifies fire extinguishers and emergency aids, and illuminates fire escape and evacuation routes.
Nova has partnered with 3form® to develop one of the most creative solutions ever introduced to the Architectural Signage industry.
This solution bonds Nova’s clear photopolymer layer (found in the industry leading NovAcryl) to 3forms® Varia Series base material. 3forms® patented EcoResin; which has up to 40% recycled content, compliments Nova’s already diverse line of green solutions.
As the name implies, the choices of Varia resin panels are as diverse as your imagination. By allowing you to custom-select the color, pattern, texture, interlayer and finish of your material, Nova’s Varia series photopolymer solution transforms into the perfect medium for your architectural applications.
The industries leading photopolymer sign material.
The photopolymer layer of Novacryl is a moisture resistant, interior grade nylon material with a Durometer hardness rating of 80 Shore D.
The clear PETG base of all NovAcryl sheets contains a co-extruded UV inhibitor to block unwanted light contamination. All NovAcryl sheets come with a high-tack back liner to prevent scratching.
The introduction of NovaLP can change the way you design your next tactile project. From wood grains to marbles and granites; LP patterns have you covered.
We now bond Nova’s popular high resolution clear photopolymer to over a hundred standard patterned laminate substrates from trusted names like Formica, Pionite and Wilsonart. All patterns are available in 1/8” thickness and a sheet size of 19” x 25”.
This all-in-one unit processes water-washable photopolymer Sign material. The Orbital X is a newly designed, stack-style processor featuring an orbital washout, exposure section, a three drawer dryer and a post exposure section. Any of these features can be assembled to customize the platemaking system.
The KOBO TC-Series hot stamp machines instantly apply color and metallic effects to painted or unpainted raised ADA compliant photopolymer graphics. No cleanup or chemistry required. These units are heavy duty cast construction.
Exterior Grade impregnated crepe adhesive. Double lined sheet format for easy handling.
Washout additive - Used in washout tank as a water additive for etching NovEx exterior materials. Also benefits brush systems by reducing polymer build-up.
