KAPA®tech
THE FIRST KAPA® BOARD WITH FIRE CERTIFICATION

KAPA®tech is the latest addition to the KAPA® family. Its unique composition of a polyurethane foam core and aluminium skins combines lightness with rigidity. KAPA®tech qualifies as Euro class B in the European Fire Classification System; making it the very first KAPA® board in the category “difficult to ignite”.

This means KAPA®tech ranks high as an ideal material for a wide range of applications: for insulation or ceiling construction, as a base for furniture construction, for shop-fitting or exhibition stand construction, as a retail POS/POP, for classical visual communication and also for three-dimensional applications.

The aluminium skins are also optimal substrates for screen or digital printing. KAPA®tech is perfectly suited for coating e.g. using genuine wood veneers, HPL or décor film. The result is a featherweight combination with an authentic surface.

Characteristics

  • High quality aluminium skins
  • Super light: only 1.7 kg/m² in 10 mm thickness
  • Excellent rigidity and dimensional stability
  • Easy folding, cutting and installation

Applications

  • Both sides of the board can be used, optimal printing results or lamination
  • Ideal for applications where weight reduction plays a significant role
  • Excellent flatness
  • Simple processing using standard wood and metalworking equipment

KAPA®tech does not contain any heavy metals in accordance with RoHS and REACH. In order to re-use the valuable raw material aluminium again, KAPA®tech sheets are separated and treated in a special technical process. The aluminium can be returned to the manufacturing process afterwards. The polyurethane is thermally recycled and resources are conserved due to its good heating value.
