Falconboard Print All White display board debuts in Europe as environmentally-responsible alternative to foam for digital printing

Falconboard Print All White

BUFFALO GROVE, Illinois (December 11, 2013)—Hexacomb Corporation, a leading manufacturer of paper-based protective packaging and graphic display boards, is making its FALCONBOARD® Print All White display board available to the European marketplace.


Ideal for demanding wide-format, digital printing applications, the rigid structure is an “all white” version of the company’s original Falconboard Print and features a solid bleached sulphate white core and liner. (The original version has a white clay-coated kraft liner and testliner paper core.)


Falconboard’s paper-based construction also offers multiple advantages over petroleum-based (polyethylene, polystyrene or polyvinyl chloride) foam boards. For example, it often contains recycled fibers which offer a preferred environmental profile. Also, paper-based structures typically can be easily recycled locally, minimizing landfill impact.


Falconboard Print All White addresses demand for higher-end interior signage, two-dimensional displays, point-of-purchase applications and more, for customers who prefer a clean white edge. This white core helps support visual appeal and graphic presentation.


It is an ideal replacement for interior signage where foam or other petroleum-based boards are currently being used. Additionally, Falconboard Print All White has met B3 flammability test standards according to DIN 4102-1 (equal to the Euroclass F).


Its unique structure can handle the most demanding of graphic display applications due to its high rigidity and dimensional stability. The display board accommodates most inks and adhesives, as well as commercial connective systems such as edge tape and plastic or metal edging/channels. It is lightweight and heat-resistant up to 80 degrees Celsius. Its tough core resists denting and its durable construction is scratch and warp resistant.


Falconboard All White Print is available in 1220 x 2440 mm and 1400 x 3050 mm sizes, and thicknesses of 10 or 16 mm.
