What is Foamex?
Foamex is a superior quality, extremely versatile PVC foam sheet that is fabrication friendly. It is easy to bend, cut, drill and glue and you can print on it.

What is it used for?
Foamex is mainly used to make signage, banners and exhibition display panels.   It has a fine cell structure that makes it the preferred choice for professional digital printers, and comes in a variety of colours and specifications. You can achieve high quality, visually pleasing signage and display products which look far more expensive than they actually are.

What are it’s advantages?
Foamex is manufactured with a high quality smooth finish that can be fabricated or cut to shape, allowing designers to create attractive graphic panels for exhibitions or advertising applications. It is a cost effective alternative to more expensive options such as plywood, MDF or aluminium, and extremely durable.

Can I use it outside?
Yes, Foamex is Water Repellent / weatherproof and does not ingress moisture so it is ideal for external applications.  It is warranted against UV fading for up to 7 years outdoors and 10 years indoors.

Is it easy to hang / mount?
As a strong, rigid material, it is easy to hang using self tapping screws, double sided Velcro or double sided adhesive pads.  Mounting on Foamex will give you excellent dimensional stability and it may be reused a number of times.
