Palboard™

Palboard™ is an innovative multilayered sheet that offers the qualities of rigid and foamed PVC together. Palboard™ combines the surface quality and characteristics of rigid PVC with a reduced weight due to a recycled foamed PVC core. Palboard™ is easy to fabricate, making it ideal for a wide variety of sign and display applications. It makes an excellent printing substrate and is suitable for digital or traditional printing. Palboard™ can be used in harsh chemical environments due to its high chemical resistance.
