SMART-X® is a distinctive lightweight foamboard for demanding visual communication applications.

This extremely lightweight foamboard with weather and UV-resistant cover layers in impact-resistant solid polystyrene (HIPS) and a core of expanded polystyrene is completely insensitive to moisture. These properties mean that it is a lightweight material which can be used in outdoor applications for a period of up to two years without significant colour change.

SMART-X® is also an optimal substrate for direct digital printing due to its smooth surface structure and availability in large formats (up to 2 metres wide).

Thanks to the excellent ratio of extremely low weight and high rigidity and flatness, SMART-X® is ideal for the following two-dimensional applications: All types of signage, self-supporting, free-standing structures, lifesized fashion displays.

Recycled content

In the manufacture of SMART-X® foamboards, we are already using a proportion of recycled polystyrene material. The production processes have been optimised to ensure waste from the production is recovered at the site itself, processed externally before being fed back into the production process.
All raw materials used in our SMART-X® foamboards comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, SMART-X® foamboards are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).

Fossil CO2 bound in the material

SMART-X® foamboards offer advantages in terms of weight and, at the same time, a high degree of stability due to their unique structure of an expanded polystyrene core and impact-resistant polystyrene cover sheets. As the foam core is the main component of the product, fewer resources are required for manufacture and the material has a lower carbon footprint.

Product life cycle

SMART-X® foamboards are extremely light and ideal for both indoor and outdoor purposes. Popular applications include free-standing POS/POP displays or as a printing substrate for all signage types and formats (even up to 2 m wide). In outdoor applications over a period of up to two years, the material’s special properties ensure there are no adverse effects on product performance.

Our SMART-X® range is made up of 100 % pure polystyrene meaning this mono-material is out-standingly adapted to recycling. In recent years, we have continually optimised our production process to recover and reuse our SMART-X® production waste on site and to feed it back into the manufacturing process.
