Foamex Board Thickness

Our Foam PVC boards are available in three standard thicknesses from stock: 3mm, 5mm and 10mm. 3mm foamex is recommended when you need something more lightweight. Even larger panels of 3mm foamex printed can be attached to a shell scheme using just velcro. 5mm foamex boards are recommended as mid range signage material, often used both indoor and outdoor. Indoor applications include wall display panels or art exhibition panels, whereas outdoor aplications are mainly: shop signs, advertising boards, building site boards and general signage. 10mm foamex panels are normally used either when more heavy duty printed material is needed or for speciality display products that could for example fit inside cut out slots.

Foamex is a popular name for rigid, hard Foam PVC board.  It is also called Forex. Foamex does not look or feel like foam material, it looks and feels rather like hard matt plastic.

What is foam core (foam board)?

Foam core or foam board name is less confusing because it actually is foam centred board. When you squeeze foam core board it deforms and feels spongy. Thanks to its foam centre Foam Core Board is much lighter than hard foamex making it ideal for indoor display panels that have to be suspended or attached with velcroe (even if the size is large).

What is the difference between Foamex (foam pvc) and Foam core board?

Foamex is hard, rigid and suitable also for outdoor use. Foam core is much lighter, has soft foam-like centre and is only suitable for indoor use.
