Alcan Composites has introduced two new
products in its Fome-Cor line. The original
Fome-Cor is now available in 0.5-in. thick
boards. It can be digitally printed directly
onto the board using water-based, solvent,
or UV-curable inks. In addition, Fome-Cor is
used in mounting and framing applications.

Foam-X graphic display board, available
in a 3/16 -in. thickness, can also be digitally
printed. A recovery board, it retains
its shape (producing an open edge) when
die-cut; while Fome-Cor compresses completely
and stays closed permanently
when die cut, creating a 3-D effect. Note:
Foam-X will not be available in other thicknesses,
