PVC foam board（PVC expandido, plastwoood)） is generally divided into PVC co-extrusion board, PVC Celuka board, and PVC free-foam board. The above can be called PVC foam board, also known as the Sintra board and Andy board. Its main chemical composition is polyvinyl chloride (PVC). PVC foam board has the characteristics of anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, mold-proof, non-water absorption, drillable, sawable, planed, easy thermal forming, thermal bending processing, and so on. Therefore, it is often used in furniture, cabinet, bath cabinet, exhibition rack board, box cores, indoor and outdoor decoration, building materials, chemical industry and other fields, advertising signs, printing, silk screen printing, spray painting, computer lettering, electronic instrument product packaging, and other industries.
PVC co-extruded foam board adopts the advanced production process of “co-extrusion by two extruders.” The surface layer has no foam, a smooth surface, and high hardness. Product application: mainly used for craft grade carving products, such as various shoe cabinets, shoe racks, storage racks, screen partitions, etc.
PVC Celuka foamed board is produced by the Celuka process, with a layer of hard skin on the surface, which is smooth, flat, high hardness, good mechanical properties, high product precision, small thickness error, and strict requirements on mold, formula, process and raw materials. Product application: it is mainly used for engraving. The board has good hardness and can be carved into various shapes without rough edges; At the same time, it is also widely used as the substrate material for PUR lamination of furniture cabinets. It is environmentally-friendly, formaldehyde-free, light, and easy to process.
PVC free-foam board has a loose surface, no crust, and presents a fine concave-convex pitted texture, which is conducive to printing, spraying, and veneering. It can be produced by using ordinary foaming mold, and the process is relatively easy to control. Product application: the product is mainly used for advertising mounting, photo, silk screen printing, etc.
Before choosing a correct PS foam board, We shall firstly understand why the PS foam board itself would blister:
1) The ripening period is too short
The ripening period of PS foam board core is too short, and more foaming gas will be left. With the gradual increase of temperature in summer, the gas in the board core will become active and easier to release outward, which is the key to the blistering of KT board.
2) Inferior face liners
Some manufacturers choose fake outer liners or inferior outer liners in order to reduce the cost of raw materials. The high-quality double-layer composite liners can resist the corrosion of the back glue and avoid the blistering problem caused by the gas leakage in the board core.
3) Save time and cost
In order to pursue production capacity, some manufacturers will adjust and accelerate the speed of the PS foam board lamination production. Because the heating lamination time is too short, the face liners and the board core show “false adhesion,” The position without adhesion will be propped up by the board core gas, thus forming bubbles.
4) Face liners overstretched
To save materials, most manufacturers will over-stretch the face liners during production. When the adhesive vinyl film is mounted on the KT board, it will erode the surface and produce gas, resulting in blistering.
There are many types of PS foam boards on the market. In summer, choosing PS foam boards covered with high-quality composite liner films is recommended. The face liners on the surface can isolate the corrosion of the back glue on the board core and eliminate the blistering problem after mounting. Of course, there is also the mounting processing method of end customers, which is also a source of problems. It needs a comprehensive analysis to find out the specific reasons.
PS foam boards are cost-effective and ideal for a wide variety of short-term interior graphic arts applications, including point-of-purchase displays, exhibitions, temporary signs, models, presentation boards, photo mounting, and picture framing.
What is the difference between the KT board (PS foam board) and PVC board?
At the event site, KT board and PVC board are widely used. But many people can’t tell the difference between the KT board and the PVC board. Some even think that the two materials belong to the same kind. As an event organizer, it’s a layman. Let Skyline Composites tell you the difference between the two.
KT board is a new type of material formed by foaming PS particles into the board core and laminating on the surface. The board body is straight, light, not easy to deteriorate, and easy to process. It can be directly screen-printed on the board (screen printing board), painted (paint adaptability needs to be tested), mounted back glue picture, and spray painting. It is often used in advertising display and promotion, architectural decoration, culture and art, packaging, and so on.
In terms of advertising, one is the mounting lining board for exhibition, display and announcement of product publicity information release, and the other is widely used in one-time screen printing, which is especially suitable for large-scale unified publicity activities.
PVC foam board, also known as Chevron board and Andy board, is made of polyvinyl chloride. There are three main product styles. The first is the Co-extruded foam board, having a layer of non-foaming rigid skin on the surface that is extra smooth and flat. The second is Celuka foam board, having a layer of hard skin on the surface that is smooth and dense. The third is free foam board, with no skin on the surface. The face is in a fine concave-convex shape (pitted surface).
From the product introduction, the most significant difference between the two kinds of boards is that the chemical raw materials are different.
The difference in application is: KT board is mainly used for indoor advertising display boards, while PVC foam board is frequently used for outdoor advertising display in the advertising industry. In other aspects, PVC foam board is more popular, and its relative value will be more costly than KT board. Therefore, the difference between the two depends on the specific purpose.
Of course, the application in the activity site depends on the needs of customers and the requirements for material quality.
The above is a simple analysis from Skyline Composites. You can go to our official website (www.skylinecomposites.com ) to learn more about the details of our advertising boards.

KT board（PS foam board) is a new type of advertising material made of PS particles through foaming to form board core and surface lamination. The board body is straight, light, not easy to deteriorate, and easy to process. The production process of KT board can be divided into cold lamination and hot lamination. The products produced by these two different processes are cold lamination and hot lamination boards.
Its application includes mounting, UV printing, screen printing, paint, modeling, and more. PS foam boards are usually used in advertising display and promotion, architectural decoration, culture and art, packaging, printing, etc. In terms of advertising, one is the mounting lining board for tradeshows, display, and announcement of product publicity information, and the other is widely used in one-time screen printing, which is especially suitable for large-scale unified publicity activities.
The standard colors of the KT board are white and black. In fact, they also have red, blue, yellow, green, and other colors. KT boards are available in a variety of sizes, including standard sheet size 1220x2440mm (48 “x96″）and standard thickness in 5mm or 10mm. Skyline Compsities foamboards have been exported to more than 20 countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan China, Mexico, Panama, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Korea, AUE, etc.

Known as Chevron board or Andy board, or referred to as Sintra board, Foamex, PVC foam as well,
PVC foam board comprises the chemical composition of Poly Vinyl Chloride, light calcium carbonate, foaming agents, etc. It can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications.
PVC foam board is manufactured through a series of production processes. Next, we will introduce the PVC foam board’s production principle and process flow.
Raw material mixing includes two steps: cold mixing and hot mixing. After weighing the PVC resin and various auxiliary materials, put them into the hot mixing pot to stir evenly and automatically put them into the cold mixing pot to mix and cool. After cold mixing, the materials are sieved by the screening machine and stored. The powdered material enters the extruder from the hopper on the extrusion line, with the continuous forward movement and the temperature change in the extrusion process. The material slowly changes from solid to viscous flow state, and the foaming agent decomposes. Due to the high pressure in the extruder and die, the gas released from the decomposition of the foaming agent dissolves into the PVC melt under high pressure. After PVC melt is extruded from the die, the gas dissolved in the melt expands and foams rapidly due to the sudden loss of pressure of the melt. It immediately enters the calibration units for cooling and calibrating and then enters the water tank for further cooling. Finally, the product is cut into a certain length after passing through the haul-off machine.
Production process flow:
In China, PVC foam board is mainly produced by domestic PVC skinned foam board production lines. Its production process is as follows:
Raw material allocation – mixing by high-speed mixer – extrusion by extruder – foaming – cooling and calibration – spraying cooling – haul-off – cutting – stacking – Inspection – warehousing of finished products.

KT board is a new material made of polystyrene (PS) PS particles through foaming to form board core and surface lamination. The board body is straight, light, not easy to deteriorate, and easy to process. It can directly mount photo pictures and adhesive back stickers on the board. It is widely used in signboard production, corporate culture wall advertising, display and promotion, advertising design, and packaging. Its material is light, flat, easy to process, and low cost. The standard size is 1.22m wide and 2.44m long.
Nowadays, with the development of society and the improvement of people’s living standards, KT board is often used in indoor layout, especially suitable for office layout, such as large-scale KT board decorative painting.
Whether the KT board is used outdoors or indoors, it usually depends on relevant combined materials and fabrication processes. Indoor KT board advertising printing is generally printed with an indoor photo back glue, laminated with matt film or glossy film, mounted on one side or double sides of the KT board with a cold mounting machine, while those placed outdoors are generally printed with outdoor photo self-adhesive, laminated with matt film or glossy film, which can also be mounted on one side or double sides of the KT board with a cold mounting machine.
Regarding the price of KT board printing, it is relatively more favorable compared with that of PVC foam board, and the printing effect is remarkable. However, KT board printing is suitable for short-term use. If used for a long time, it is easy to blister due to the reasons of the board texture itself and the change of weather. We suggest replacing the KT board with a PVC foam board for long-term use.
Reasons for blistering of KT board
Bubble phenomenon: after mounting the photo picture on the KT board, the picture film is arched to form bubbles.
The ripening period of the foam core is short.
The PS film on the board surface is too thin.
The glue on the back of the picture reacts with the PS film.
The environment is too hot and cold, and the temperature difference between day and night is too big.
PVC is a plastic material, and the foam board is a foam material.
PVC foam board: the main component is polyvinyl chloride. Foam board: mainly composed of polystyrene.
The foam board material is a foam board, the inner foam is foaming, and the outer layer of the sheet is very light, and the price is low.
Because the core is too soft (the foam is flat), it is not suitable to make complex models and shapes, so it is not suitable for complex sculptures.
Of course, you can do it carefully with a manual knife, but the effect is obvious. The result is not as good as that of PVC foam board.
The Foam board is not sunscreen and waterproof. In case of exposure to the sun and rain, the surface will blister and deform, which will affect the image surface quality.
Foam board is easy to cut and install, but the surface is relatively fragile, and it is easy to leave traces when it is accidentally touched.
PVC is foamed with plastic inside and PVC veneer outside. Due to its high density, the weight is 3-4 times heavier than foam board. Of course, the price is also 3-4 times higher,
The hardness is relatively high. A good PVC foam board can’t be pinched with your fingers. It’s terrific to use this to make complex models and fine carving.
Secondly, PVC is sunscreen and waterproof and will not deform in case of exposure and rain.
PVC also has the characteristics of fire and heat resistance. It is mainly used to replace wood as a fireproof material.
The surface of the PVC foam sheet is very smooth, has high hardness, and not easy to scratch.
2. Different use-values:
PVC foam board is more widely used and has better material characteristics. PVC foam board is relatively rigid and much heavier than foam board. Due to the high density of PVC, the weight is 3-4 times heavier than foam board. Of course, the price is also 3-4 times higher. Some PVC prices are even more than + 5-10 times higher than foam board.
3. Different application ranges:
Foam board is mainly used for indoor short-term advertising displays. It works as a backboard for stickers, PP paper with mounted and printed pictures.
The main reason is that the material of the foam board is light and easy to install.
PVC is generally used for outdoor medium and long-term advertising display.
Foam board is mainly used in the indoor sign industry, DIY production (especially aircraft model production), and cosplay props.
PVC is mainly used for outdoor billboards, site signs, etc. It can also be used indoors, such as signs and placards in harsh environments such as workshops and plants.
Other uses: PVC is more used for laser engraving characters and various cultural walls and background walls, mainly for long-term use.
Foam board is used for various special-shaped labels, hands-up cards, and supermarket personality cards, primarily for short-term display.
How to select:
The scratch resistance and durability of PVC foam boards are better than that of foam boards. However, the cost of PVC foam board is much higher than that of foam board. Therefore, which one to choose depends on the cost control, use scenario, and time limit.
PVC is a plastic material, and foam board is a foam material.
PVC material is rigid and suitable for machine engraving. Foam board material is brittle and can not stand machine engraving, but it is ideal for manual engraving.
Both PVC board and foam board can be used to mount the picture. PVC board is used outdoors, foam board is used indoors, PVC board can be used for a long time, and foam board is used for a short time.
PVC board has high hardness and is not easy to cut by hand. Foam board has low hardness and can be cut by hand.
PVC has strong scratch resistance, and the foam board is fragile, which is easy to produce scratches.
PVC has strong durability and is suitable for long-term use. Foam board has weak durability and is ideal for medium and short-term use. (within 1-2 years).
PVC board is suitable for outdoor use, and Foam board is ideal for indoor use.
PVC is heavy and needs to be reinforced. Foam is light and easy to install.
The price of PVC is 3-4 times the price of PVC board (also 3-4 times the weight). Better PVC is more than 5-10 times.
PVC also has the characteristics of fire and heat resistance. It can replace wood and be used as a fireproof material.
PVC is more used for CNC engraving characters and various cultural walls and background walls, which are mostly used for a long time.
Foam board is used for various special-shaped labels, hands-up cards, and supermarket personality cards, primarily for short-term display. Foam board is not weatherproof and waterproof. In case of exposure to the sun and rain, the surface will blister and deform, which will affect the image surface quality. PVC board is weather-resistant and waterproof and will not twist in case of exposure and rain.
PVC furniture board has the characteristics of anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, mildew-proof, low water absorption, drilling, sawing, routing, easy to thermoforming & hot bending, and so on. It is widely used in furniture, cabinet, bath cabinet, exhibition frame board, box substrates, indoor and outdoor decorations, building materials, chemical industry, and other fields.
PVC furniture board refers to the skin foaming board with PVC as the primary raw material, which can be made into PVC products according to the design and processing of wood furniture. The surface can be printed, embossed, laminated, with features of flame-resistant, moisture-proof, acid and alkali resistance, and long application life.
Furniture board, bedroom furniture, living room furniture, bed board, bookcase board, wardrobe board.
The prospect of PVC furniture board
At present, the PVC industry is developing rapidly all over the world with broad prospects. All countries are optimistic about the potential of PVC and its benefits to the ecological environment. PVC is proving to the world that its role and status can not be replaced by any other products with its superior and unique properties. Social development needs it and environmental protection needs it. It is the inevitable trend of the progress of human civilization.
At a time when the PVC industry is booming all over the world, however, it is a pity that the market share of PVC furniture materials (including cabinets) in our country is less than 10%. Many consumers have not even heard of PVC as a furniture material, let alone know what PVC is. When German people have treated PVC as a high-grade, non-toxic, and pollution-free environmental protection material, why our Chinese domestic market share is still so small? Of course, there is the problem of consumption level, but it is mainly related to our consumers’ lack of correct understanding of PVC. It hindered the large-scale PVC furniture production. I believe that through the joint efforts of our companions and the maturity of the market, the PVC industry will surely reach a new level in the field of furniture.
PVC foam board: with the characteristics of anti-corrosion, moisture-proof, mildew proof, low water absorption, drilling, sawing, routing, easy to thermoforming, hot bending processing, etc., it is widely used in furniture, cabinet, bath cabinet, exhibition frame board, box core layer, indoor and outdoor decoration, building materials, chemical industry and other fields, advertising, printing, silk screen printing, spray painting, computer lettering, Electronic instrument products packaging and other industries
