3A COMPOSITES DISPLAY EUROPE

FOAM-X® FIVE-DOT-MISSION

FOAM-X®, the indoor foamboard with cover layers made of recycled paper has been assessed in line with our MISSION: TOGETHER. RESPONSIBLE. The product currently achieves a FIVE-DOT classification with a total of 8 points.

BIOBASED CONTENT

Not only polyurethane but also recycled paper cover layers are used in the production of our FOAM-X®, foamboards. The expanded polyurethane foam core comprises 15% of organic content. These polyols are sourced from renewable raw materials.  In our production, FSC® certified paper is used and this makes up the main part of our FOAM-X® boards. The FSC® label stands for a continuous and credible tracking process. It is a clear indicator that the paper comes from responsible forestry. The forest management is in compliance with social, economic and environmental requirements.

All raw materials used in our FOAM-X® boards also comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, FOAM-X® 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.

RECYCLED CONTENT

All the paper cover layers used in FOAM-X® boards are recycled FSC® certified paper. The paper cover layers make up the majority of the weight in the entire product.

FOSSIL CO2 BOUND IN THE MATERIAL

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

PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE

The FOAM-X® life span is typically at least several weeks or longer. The foamboards are primarily for simple interior applications (e.g. ceiling mounted suspended signs, window decoration, model building or for the backing board of picture frames).
