The KAPA® technology used for the production of thin lightweight boards with polyurethane hardfoam core is unique. It differs fundamentally from conventional production methods for thicker boards using twin-belt machines. Our special production process involves foaming between the two cover-sheet layers to create a foam with virtually spherical cell geometry - resulting in higher resistance to bending and pressure.

KAPA® | Lightweight boards with polyurethane hardfoam core
KAPA® | Worldwide unique production of thin lightweight boards

KAPA® is an extremely efficient lightweight foam board:

  • High level of stiffness and dimensional stability
  • Optimum flatness even on thin sheets

The polyurethane core provides a high level of stiffness and heat-resistance, it can be easily cut and cut out (either manually or with a jig saw) without causing the foam to crumble.
