Recyclable FiberMate is comprised of wood fiber that is manufactured into a high-density fiberboard available in the 3.2mm thickness. FiberMate graphic display boards are finished with Eco-Finish—a white water-based UV print coating on both sides. FiberMate’s Eco-Finish is designed to provide excellent ink and paint adhesion on both sides of this graphic display board, enabling double-sided printing and other double-sided finishing applications.
FiberMate can be recycled in either wood or paper waste streams, depending on local community resources, and providing that printing inks and/or mounting or other finishing materials applied to the media also are recyclable. FiberMate with Eco-Finish is CARB (California Air Resource Board) compliant.
“FiberMate has been very well-received by the graphic display industry since it was introduced earlier this year,” said Brandon Wyatt, marketing manager, 3A Composites USA. “Today’s graphic designers and retail display fabricators are encouraged more than ever to form partnerships with suppliers focused on ‘green’ initiatives; and, FiberMate fits well in 3A Composites’ Care & Conserve sustainability initiative, in which each of our products is focused on sustainability through its lifecycle, from raw materials acquisition through disposal. FiberMate was added to our product line specifically to meet the needs of major retailers that are specifying that their displays utilize rigid substrates and print media that can be channeled into wood and paper recycling streams.”
FiberMate is stocked in 49x97-inch sheets in the 3.2mm thickness. FiberMate is designed for creating medium-term point-of-purchase displays, interior signage and exhibits/kiosks, and for long-term framing applications. It can be finished with mounted graphics, digital printing, screen printing, and painted designs. FiberMate can be cut with a saw and routs extremely well.
