What is Kapa™ Foamboard?

Kapa™ Foamboard is made up of three layers – an inner hard foam polyurethane core clad with a reinforced aluminium layer (adding protection for photographic images) and outer covering of card.

Why Should I Choose Kapa Foamboard Mounting?

Foamboard mounting is a lightweight yet rigid mounting solution, perfect for ensuring your prints are flat within the frame, or to use alone to mount prints directly on to the wall for more temporary displays.

We are able to offer Foamboard mounts in both 5mm and 10mm thicknesses and up to a maximum size of 118 x 60 inches. (2 997 x 1524mm).

Both Foamboard and Foamex are exceptionally lightweight and ideal cost-effective mounting solutions. Foamex generally has a better strength to weight ratio than Foamboard – so it will not be as easily damaged, we generally recommend Foamex where mounted photographs or artwork will be exhibited multiple times.

We aim to turnaround orders for our finishing services within 8 – 10 days. Large orders are often subject to slightly longer turnaround times, please speak to us to confirm turnaround times prior to placing your order.
