SMART-X from 3A Composites (www.graphicdisplay.com) is billed as the first 100%-recylable heavy-duty foam board available in the Americas.

The all-plastic sheet is constructed with a moisture-resistant expanded polystyrene core and two layers of UV-resistant solid polystyrene. Since SMART-X is manufactured without adhesives applied between its core and facers, 3A says that it cannot delaminate in exterior applications. According to the company, it can be installed indoors with no significant change in color for up to two years. SMART-X can be direct printed through digital and screen presses, and can be routed and milled for signs, displays, and in-store lettering; it can also be used for indoor mounting applications.

It is available in 48 x 96-in. sheets in four thicknesses, and comes with a protective film that guards the decoration surface prior to decoration.
