A highly versatile, light-weight, pre-decorated kraft composite board available in a range of paper laminate finishes, offering designers an ultra-lightweight alternative panel to timber veneered MDF or particle board.

XBD with re-inforced paper laminates is suitable for semi-permanent applications lasting up to 5 years indoors.

X-Board’s crush-resistant corrugated kraft inner core is manufactured from post-consumer recycled kraft and bagasse waste. This core is sandwiched between laminated top and bottom layers of approx. 350gsm kraft paper, creating a strong, yet completely repulpable indoor construction board.

Amazingly, the entire board can be disposed of in industrial cardboard recycling bins. (The melamine paper skins are separated out in the paper recycling process)

Papers have been carefully selected by Xanita’s R&D team to ensure they can fold to 90 degrees without surface cracking. This allows for a range of cost-effective, creative, semi-permanent structures to be produced.

Processing Tips:

X-Board Decor Paper panels are best cut using a CNC table cutter fitted with both oscillating knife blade and V-groove drag knife. This allow for clean edges, where a standard router with spiral bit would produce a furry, rough edge.


A printable kraft-based, reinforced board with excellent stability and lay-flat properties for internal applications and short-term outdoor applications.

Other related benefits of weight reduction include savings on transport, handling, storage and damage costs, as the material is simply lighter and easier to work with.
