Product info

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.

Smart-X Applications:

  • Digital printing
  • Displays (POS/POP)
  • Exhibition design
  • Lettering
  • Screen printing
  • Shop design / shop fitting
  • Signage

Smart-X Properties

  • 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.
