Foam PVC, not to be confused with foam board, is one of the most versatile rigid signboards. Completely waterproof and with good rigidity and strength foam PVC is popular for both internal and external signage applications even for long term applications. It is also a competitively priced sheet material making it suitable for all budgets.
Foamex is actually a brand name of foam PVC, other brands we can supply include Foamalux, Foamalite, Smart X, Forex and Foamatec. All of these brands are similar sheets of solid foam PVC, with fully rigid plastic construction.

Foam centred board is for internal use only. It has a lightweight foam based core sandwiched between paper liners on each side. It creates a material which is completely rigid and excellent for internal display graphics. The trade-off for the lightweight properties and rigidity is it is susceptible to damage and must be treated with more care than a Foamex board.
Once we have printed foam boards we have the capabilities in house to CAD cut them to shape making Kappa foam board ideal for standees, displays, cut outs and point of sale items such as strut cards.
We stock different brands of foam centred board including Kappa foam board, Insite and M2 foam board. Premium Kappa foam board with a re-enforced aluminium liner is available for increased durability. Our printed foam board is produced on our UV digital flat beds, direct to media printing foam board gives a high quality finish without the risk of future de-lamination.
