Biodegradable Foamboard

Recycled-content boards break down into biomass when placed in landfill or composted



The Gilman Brothers Co. (Gilman, CT) is offering two, biodegradable, foamboard products for signage and graphic displays. The materials are made from 15% recycled content with “bio resins” that, according to the company, cause the material to degrade in landfills or commercial composting machines that expose it to a bacteria-laden environment and allow a complete breakdown into a biomass material within five years, the company reports.

Insite®, a paper-faced foamboard, with smooth, bright-white paper liners, comprises wood products certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative, and is designed for mounting, printing, laminating, screenprinting and die cutting. Duraplast®, an all-plastic foamboard, contains waterproof, biodegradable, polystyrene liners, and its pH-neutral surface is recommended for printing and mounting applications, according to the company.
