UV inkjet growth drives Starleaton to take on new lightweight board

The substrate, manufactured by Alcan Composites, has a core made from dense polyurethane, while its primed surface makes it ideal for UV inkjet printing, according to Starleaton general manager Ben Eaton.

“What makes KAPAplast unique is its superb flatness, resistance to bowing and ease of fabrication,” said Eaton (pcitured).

“It is a foam-cored board made from dense polyurethane, not polystyrene like other locally manufactured foam boards. It cuts cleanly and easily and can be grooved or even hinged. 3D modelers, POP fabricators and interior signage producers love working with KAPA-plast as it shapes very well and retains a nice clean, paintable edge when cut,” he added.

KAPA-plast, which is made at an ISO 9001 and 14001-certified site in Germany, is available in 20mm thickness, with 10mm and 5mm soon available. Sheet size is 1,530×3,050mm, while oversize sheet sizes of up to 2,000×4,000mm are also available.
