FOAMALITE®, the expanded rigid PVC sheets ideally suitable for applications in the field of visual communication, have been assessed in line with our MISSION: TOGETHER. RESPONSIBLE. The products currently achieve a FIVE-DOT classification with a total of 6 respectively 7 points.
We are already recovering and reusing our own production waste to create new material in the manufacture of FOAMALITE® sheets, and we aim to continue increasing the proportion of recycled content in the future:
Our range already includes FOAMALITE® plus, a panel which features high-quality white cover sheets and has a particularly high recycled content due to its black recycled core.
All raw materials used in our FOAMALITE® sheets comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, FOAMALITE® sheets are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).
FOAMALITE® sheets offer advantages in terms of weight and, at the same time, a high degree of stability due to their unique foamed structure. As fewer resources are required for its manufacture, the material has a lower carbon footprint.
Our FOAMALITE® sheets are made of PVC, a very robust and durable synthetic material which with excellent long-term properties. The material is also known for its “difficult to ignite” rating, its strong resistance to chemicals and outstanding resistance to weathering.
FOAMALITE® premium is used, in particular, for very long-term applications in the visual communication and interior design sectors. FOAMALITE® x-press and FOAMALITE® plus are high quality plastic sheets for medium-term indoor and outdoor purposes in the printing and signage sectors. FOAMALITE® color offers a wide variety of colours and is a real eye-catcher for medium-term shop and design uses.
The whole FOAMALITE® product family can be sorted into individual types for recycling and reuse. We are committed to processing our production waste within the company and using it again to manufacture new products.
