The term Phenolic is often used to refer to any layered plastic. Actually, phenolic is a very specific, resin-based material. It is no longer widely used for signage in General Manufacturing. Modern acrylic based plastics have taken over that market. Almost always, if a specification calls out Phenolic they are really needing Plastic. Consult your Engineer or contact us if you are not sure.
