Key Properties

An environmentally friendlier alternative to PVC Foamboard. Manufactured to the highest quality in the UK. When you dispose of PVC foam it can be incinerated giving off dioxins which are one of the most toxic substances produced by mankind. Foam Polystyrene contains no PVC so gives off no dioxins and it is CFC free. It is a medium density board made with a white Polystyrene core. The surfaces are covered with white paper which is a perfect substrate for direct to substrate digital printing with UV curing inks as well as with solvent based inks. It can also be used for screen-printing applications such as event marketing and promotion campaigns and high quality signage.
