X-Board Kraft is being used in 1001 ways by creative design professionals.

For an eco-chic look and when you need to recycled your structures within 5 years, X-Board Kraft is a highly versatile, lightweight kraft composite board which offers designers and manufacturers an eco-alternative to MDF, particle board and non-renewable, polymer-based sheeting, typically used for short-term displays and structures.

X-Board’s crush-resistant corrugated kraft core is manufactured from post-consumer kraft and bagasse waste. The core material is sandwiched between laminated top and bottom layers of 350gsm kraft liner, creating a high strength-to-weight ratio, fully repulpable display board, which can be disposed of in industrial paper recycling bins.

For production runs, X-Board Kraft is best cut using a CNC router fitted with both oscillating knife and bevel-cut drag knife. For simple straight-cutting of low volume sheeting, (eg. hobby, DIY or set-building use) a heavy-duty Stanley-type knife, panel saw, jigsaw or vertical foam trimming machine may be used.

If one needs to hide the boards exposed kraft edges, for straight edges, X-Board can be double-mitre cut and folded back on itself, or one can apply a PVC C-channel edging with hot-melt glue gun, which can be removed before recycling the board after its useful life. This is supplied in 50m or 100m rolls in a variety of colours.

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. Hundreds of thousands of cubic metres of MDF and particleboard is produced using virgin wood fibres and non-recyclable fibre bonding agents such as urea formaldehyde.
