KAPA® boards are a composite of polyurethane foam and various paper surfaces, some of which are FSC® certified. The boards (often referred to as Depafit) are available in a range of colors from white and gray to black. There are variants with self-adhesive or moisture-repellent surfaces while others have a particularly stable foam core. The diverse range of boards is used primarily in the field of visual communication.

The easy processing of KAPA® foam panels is another benefit, which of course also applies to FOAM-X® and the extremely stable GATORFOAM® panels.

For short-term outdoor use (1 - 2 days) we recommend KAPA® plast - for long-term outdoor use we recommend the weatherproof, lightweight & at the same time extremely stable SMART-X® plastic sheets.
