EKA Board (wood pulp board)

EKA wood pulp board with excellent converting properties


Composition:

Pure woodpulp board with very smooth, natural white surfaces, light-coloured core and high material volume. 

Applications:

Eka board is ideal as laminating board for display purposes such as signs, ceiling danglers, advertising displays, free-standing figures and other visual communication at POS/POP. The PEFC-certified solid board is also used for book covers, picture framing (passe-partout), backing boards, games & toys for children, model making (architectural models) and packaging.
Furthermore our carton has been classified as “FOOD SAFE” by ISEGA and is suitable for contact with dry, moist and fatty foods. It’s allowed to be in direct contact with foods such as cakes, sandwiches and sweets as an interlayer or coaster. Our Eka Board is further certified by ISEGA  according to DIN EN 71-3 and DIN EN 71-9 as a safe material for toys and can be used for e.g. puzzles, board games, toy packaging and much more.

Further processing:

The natural white, smooth cardboard surfaces of Eka board are ideally suited for lamination. In addition, they can also be printed directly in flatbed printing processes such as direct digital printing, screen printing or letterpress printing (1.0 + 1.2 mm smooth on one side / 1.5 - 8.0 mm smooth on both sides). The superior flatness, high stiffness and clean cutting edges enable optimal further processing: laminating, die-cutting, digital cutting, laser cutting and embossing.

Sustainability:

EKA woodpulp board is PEFC-certified (No. 44 702 100091) and 100% recyclable material. Therefore, it can be disposed of easily & cost-effectively as waste paper. By using renewable & responsibly sourced raw materials, EKA board is a sustainable & plastic-free alternative to plastic boards (e.g. rigid PVC foam boards, polystyrene).

As manufacturer of Eka Holzpappe - our machine made wooden board produced since 1932 - KOHLSCHEIN offers many different thicknesses and stock sizes from 700 x 1000 mm up to the XXL size 1400 x 3000 mm.
