Does your metal meet DOT standards?
Yes, 5052-H38 has been the industry standard alloy for the past 40 years and is the only alloy specified by all DOTs, and for good reason…
- 5052 has 39.3% more Tensile strength and 33.3% more Yield strength than 3105*
- 5052 has 5 times the magnesium content of 3105, giving it vastly superior corrosion resistance*
– Relative to the performance of the two alloys, the price difference is negligible
Vulcan specializes in the manufacture and fabrication of 5052-H38. Its long-standing reputation as the industry standard speaks for itself.

Does your sheeting meet the minimum retroreflectivity?
Yes. Vulcan Signs is an exclusive 3M fabricator and all of our signage utilizes 3M sheeting, which meets the minimum retroreflectivity standard.
Does Vulcan make custom signs?
Yes! Fabricating signs for the transportation industry is where we have made our mark in the signage world since 1966, but over the years we have grown and expanded our product offerings to include endless possibilities for custom signage. The addition of our in-house laser cutter enables us to fabricate completely unique shapes. From our very own Vulcan Aluminum, we have lasered everything from monograms for door hangers, to intricate logos, giving a standard sign a layered or 3D effect. Our large format digital printer broadens our abilities to offer signage that includes full color, high-definition photography and graphics as well. The experienced graphics team at Vulcan has the knowledge and expertise to take a generic idea and fine tune the design, producing an end product that includes the right balance of graphics and verbiage for an effective message. We also have the ability to color match any Pantone color using 3M translucent inks.
