Tectan board is a chipboard-like material made from beverage cartons, both the scraps from production and used cartons. The drink cartons consist of various layers of paperboard, polyethylene and aluminium. In the production process of the board, the polyethylene melts and acts like a glue to keep the material together.
Tectan board is available in three variations. The original version uses the entire cartons to create a colourful board. The second version uses recycled paperboard from the carton, separated from the aluminium in a recycling process. The third version reuses the aluminium to create a shiny board material.
