Please note: We have replaced Kappa Board with Smart-X which we have found to be a much more stable and longer lasting alternative due to its structure.
SMART-X® is the distinctive and unique lightweight, PVC Free foam board for applications in the field of visual communication. SMART-X® is a lightweight, all-plastic sheet material. Its surfaces consist of UV and weather resistant solid polystyrene (HIPS) and a core of expanded polystyrene that is completely moisture-resistant. Because of these characteristics Smart-X is probably the world's only lightweight foam board for internal or external applications without any significant change in colour for a period of up to two years.
Shop design / shop fitting
Very good weather-resistance – UV stability and moisture-resistance; as a result no warping
High degree of stiffness for its extremely light weight
Fine, even surface structure
Outstanding printability for direct-to-substrate digital printing
Fresh print colour
Also available in large format up to 2 metres wide
Heat resistance of -10 °C to +70 °C
SMART-X® is made from 100% polystyrene (no adhesive between core and cover layers)
Very good recycling properties thanks to homogeneous material composite - Therefore Smart-X is 100% recyclable
Over 95% of the production waste resulting from the manufacture of SMART-X® is collected locally on the production site and sent for reprocessing.
