SMART-X the distinctive and unique lightweight foam board for sophisticated applications in the field of visual communication. SMART-X is a lightweight, all-plastic sheet material with surfaces of UV and weather resistant solid polystyrene (HIPS) and a core of expanded polystyrene that is completely moisture-resistant. These characteristics make SMART-X the world’s only lightweight foam board for external applications without any significant change in colour for a period of up to two years. Due to its refined surface structure and the large format production (up to 2 metres width) SMART-X is also perfectly suited for direct digital printing.
Moreover, SMART-X is a mono-material composite made from 100% polystyrene and, therefore, perfectly meets the demand for ecological materials in the area of visual communication. The material is strong, resistance to weathering, refined surface structure, brilliant printing results with direct digital printing, temperature resistance from -10 °C up to +70 °C, low resistance during contour milling.
