Hexacomb Falconboard from Pregis
New environmentally responsible graphic-display board.
Falconboard, a new environmentally responsible graphic display board, has been launched by Pregis Corporation’s Hexacomb business unit. Intended for digital and screenprinting applications, the 100% paper-based product is made from renewable resources (20% recycled fiber content minimum) and is recyclable.
Falconboard features an engineered paper core and water-based adhesives coupled with a white printing surface. Produced chlorofluorocarbon-free, it emits zero VOCs during manufacturing, and has been designed to be a “green” alternative to foam boards made from polyethylene (PE), polystyrene (PS) or polyvinylchloride (PVC).
The board accommodates most inks and adhesives, as well as commercial
connective systems such as edge tape and plastic or metal edging/channels. It is lightweight and heat-resistant up to 300°F. In addition, Pregis reports, Falconboard
cuts easily and cleanly, can be die-cut, and is resistant to denting, warping, and scratching.

from 1/4- to 4 in.; standard sheet sizes are 48 x 96, 48 x 120, 60 x 96, and 60 x 120 in. (custom sizes also available). Target applications include: point-of-purchase displays, interior signage, exhibits, kiosks, framing, mounting, specialty print market, direct digital and screen printing, painting, etc.
