HDU vs. Redwood & Cedar
Redwood and Cedar have long been the standard substrate options for the sandblasted industry. Over the last ten years or so, a new standard in long term customer satisfaction has led the industry to develop a better material. High Density Urethane, or HDU, is a foam material that technicians are discovering to be a superior replacement for the natural woods.
Today, “Sign Foam” and “Precision Board” are brand names for High Density Urethane foam manufactured with standards for the sign industry. This is not to say that redwood sandblasting is going by the wayside but, these natural woods are becoming increasingly difficult to get. Also, they are becoming cost prohibitive.
Factor in that HDU offers a variety of advantages over redwood and it is easy to justify why SignWire.com utilizes this wonder foam in approximately 95% of our sandblasted signs. Finishes will last longer simply because HDU is impervious to water-meaning absolutely no moisture concerns. Some finishes in redwood and cedar can dull due to shrinking and swelling over time.

Sandblasted Signs vs. Routed Signs
Sandblasted signs usually have the lettering and design masked off. The surrounding background area is sandblasted out. This gives the masked areas a 3D effect. Adding detailed painting to this raised section of material really makes the sign. A sandblasted sign will also emphasize the differences in the wood grains.
Routed signs have that same lettering or design cut (usually beveled) into the surface of the material. This reverse look gives the background the raised look. Routed signs are usually less expensive than sandblasted signs.
