Foamex is a brand name for a rigid, lightweight PVC foam sheet. It’s extremely versatile – it’s used for temporary and permanent signs, it’s found in scores of exhibition stands up and down the country.

You can cut foamex board to any shape you want. You can drill foamex boards for affixing to other signs or to walls. Foamex board is water repellant and has a smooth finish – making it ideal for exhibition graphic printing.

3mm Foamex
5mm Foamex
10mm Foamex

You can order online for standard 3mm and 5mm foam PVC board but it also comes in 1mm and 10mm thickness.

Are there any additional finishes for foamex board?

Our standard boards come printed directly onto the foam PVC board.

You can, however, print onto a number of different finishes:

  • Gloss Laminate – High shine surface, great for reflecting light and for making bright colours zing
  • Matt finish – Soft finish that does reflect light (no surface glare)
  • Anti-scratch lamination – helps extend the life of display boards where it comes into contact with finger prints or outside
  • Dry Wipe – high gloss finish that be written on, wiped off and then written on again
