KAPA® graph (Lightweight foam boards)
Ideal presentation board for architects and designers!

Particularly high-quality sandwich panel with deep black or bright white outer layers of cellulose and a grey or white panel core of PUR rigid foam.


KAPA® graph is used as a designer board / background board for a wide range of creative work, as well as for presentations and in model making. In addition, the acid-free and ph-neutral boards are suitable for use as picture backgrounds and passepartout boards. KAPA® graph lightweight boards are used wherever a particularly aesthetic design surface is required.

Further processing:

The matt surface layers can be printed directly with digital or screen printing and - in contrast to the glossy KAPA® color surfaces - are very easy to apply. Simple cutting (with a cutter/knife or digital cutting plotter) allows creative free forms.
