EKA Board (Wood pulp board)

EKA wood pulp board with excellent further processing properties


Pure woodpulp board with very smooth, natural white top layers, light-coloured core and high bulk. 


Eka board is ideal as laminating board for display purposes such as signs, graphics, indoor signage, hanging signs, advertising displays, free-standing figures and other visual communication at POS/POP. The PEFC-certified solid board is also used for book covers, note pads, picture framing (passe-partouts), games and toys for children, art supplies, model making (architectural models) and packaging such as rigid boxes. It is also used for different industrial applications.
Furthermore our cardboard in thicknesses up to 4 mm has been classified as “FOOD SAFE” by ISEGA and is suitable for contact with dry and non-fatty foodstuffs as a protective layer or lining as well as for secondary packaging. 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 large format digital printing, screen printing or letterpress (1.0 - 1.2 mm smooth on one side / 1.5 - 8.0 mm smooth on both sides). The excellent flatness, high stability and clean cut edges enable optimal further processing: laminating, die-cutting, digital cutting, laser cutting and embossing.


EKA woodpulp board is PEFC-certified and a 100% recyclable material. Therefore, it can be disposed of easily and cost-effectively as waste paper. By using renewable and responsibly sourced raw materials, EKA board is a sustainable and plastic-free alternative to plastic boards (e.g. rigid PVC foam boards, polystyrene).

As manufacturer of Eka wood pulp board ( machine-made since 1932 ) KOHLSCHEIN offers many different thicknesses and stock sizes from 700 x 1000 mm up to the XXL size 1400 x 3000 mm.
