9497B Self Adhesive Channelled Foam Board 5mm 1524 x 1016mm 25 sheets

White self-adhesive foam board with a channelled permanent adhesive that allows air bubbles to escape

An innovative foam core board with random micro channels in the permanent adhesive coating. These channels allow air bubbles to escape to ensure a flat and even bond. Permanent adhesive is applied to one side of the board. Simply peel back the release paper to reveal the adhesive and carefully lay down the artwork. The PE coated surface papers minimise risk of warping during changes in air humidity. Ideal for those wanting to mount prints and posters without access to special equipment.

Non-toxic, pH neutral, CFC free foam board. This foam core board is suitable for many framing, display, presentation and hobby tasks.

With self-adhesive boards, always peel up and fold back a 10mm strip of release paper along one edge and align the item to be mounted. Then peel back further and press down as you go. Use a brayer roller or a roller laminator to help ensure the medium is bonded firmly and evenly to the adhesive foam board.

What is foam board?

+ Lightweight graphic art board, with a high-density polystyrene foam core and liner papers on the faces.
+ Light, durable and flat with good structural strength and moisture resistance. It has all kinds of applications in photo mounting, picture framing, displays and merchandising, printing, mounting and laminating.
+ This foam board is totally CFC free, pH neutral and contains no toxins or harmful substances.
+ Available in a variety of liner combinations of paper, plastic coated paper self-adhesive and aluminium layered.

How is foam board made?

+ Polystyrene foam core is extruded, loosely rolled up and left in a store for 30 days to allow it to out-gas.
+ Specially formulated EVA based emulsion adhesives permanently bond the polystyrene foam to the paper liners.
+ After the boards have been laminated, they are dried, cooled and then sized with an automated cutter.

Tips for using foam board

Foam board can be cut in a number of ways. When using a blade such as a Swann Morton scalpel or Stanley knife ensure the blade is sharp to give a nice clean cut. Sheet material cutters such as the Keencut Simplex and Keencut Evolution3 will improve your workshop efficiency when cutting foam board in larger volumes. Foamwerks cutting tools are recommended for cutting custom shapes for use in object framing and modelling.

Store boards flat in an area where the temperature doesn’t fluctuate to ensure they don't bow.
