KAPA®

For more than 40 years now KAPA® is synonymous for lightweight foam boards with a polyurethane foam core. The KAPA® foaming technology is globally unique. The KAPA® product portfolio includes individual paper-based cover layers and applications range from model building to substrate for printing and advertising messages.

KAPA® is an extremely efficient lightweight foam board:

  • Flat surfaces can be used on both sides
  • High-quality cover layers
  • High level of stiffness and dimensional stability
  • Optimum flatness even on thin sheets

The polyurethane core provides a high level of stiffness and heat-resistance, it can be easily cut and cut out (either manually or with a jig saw) without causing the foam to crumble.
