SMART-X®

SMART-X® is the distinctive and unique lightweight foam board for sophisticated applications in the field of visual communication. SMART-X® is a lightweight, all-plastic sheet material with surfaces of UV and weather resistant solid polystyrene (HIPS) and a core of expanded polystyrene that is completely moisture-resistant. These characteristics make it the world's only lightweight foam board for external applications without any significant change in colour for a period of up to two years.


  • Very good weather-resistance - UV stability and moisture-resistance; no warping
  • High degree of stiffness for its extremely light weight
  • Fine, even surface structure
  • Outstanding printability for direct-to-substrate digital printing
  • Fresh print colour
  • Also available in large format up to 2 metres wide
  • Heat resistance of -10 °C to +70 °C
  • SMART-X® is made from 100% polystyrene (no adhesive between core and cover layers)
  • Very good recycling properties thanks to homogeneous material composite - 100% recyclable
  • Over 95% of the production waste resulting from the manufacture of SMART-X® is collected locally on the production site and sent for reprocessing
