Biobased Content

Not only polyurethane but also an assortment of paper cover layers is used in the production of our KAPA®, foamboard manufacture. The expanded polyurethane foam core comprises 15 % of organic content. These polyols are sourced from renewable raw materials.  In the production of our KAPA® boards most of the paper used is FSC® certified and this makes up the main part of the board. The FSC® label stands for a continuous and credible tracking process. It is a clear indicator that the paper comes from responsible forestry and other controlled sources. We are constantly monitoring the availability of other FSC®-certified cover layers, as we are committed to manufacturing as many products as possible using paper from responsible sources.

All raw materials used in our KAPA® boards also comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, KAPA® boards are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). The boards do not contain any toxic substances or heavy metals that may harm the environment or create health risks.

Fossil CO2 bound in the material

KAPA® is ultra-light due to the special manufacturing technology featuring an expanded foam core between the two outer paper cover layers. As the foam core requires fewer resources to manufacture, the material has a lower carbon footprint. Using paper, a renewable raw material, as the main component in terms of weight results in less fossil CO2 bound in the material.

Product life cycle

The average life span for KAPA® foamboards ranges from several weeks to several months. Depending on the application and location, e.g. in museums, the foamboards’ service life can be considerably longer. KAPA® is more durable than other lightweight foamboards especially when service temperatures are at a consistent -20° to +100°C. The KAPA® product family has been successful in the market for over 50 years and is simply indispensable for numerous short-term and medium-term interior applications.
