The heavy-duty foam board is UV- and weather-resistant.
3A Composites has launched Smart-X, a heavy-duty, but lightweight, all-plastic sheet foam board with surfaces of UV- and weather-resistant solid polystyrene; the new board is 100% recyclable, the company reports.
Designed for signs and displays, indoor as well as outdoor, Smart-X is available in 3/16-, 3/8-, ½-, and ¾-in. thicknesses (the 3/16-, 3/8-, and 1/2-in. sheets feature protective film on one side; the ¾-in. sheets feature protective film on both sides), in 48-in. widths, and with white foam and white facers. 3A Composites notes that approximately 95% of production waste in the manufacture of Smart-X is collected and recycled on-site.
