Drytac has now launched a range of natural edging materials for use with their DES-4 Foam edge finishing system.

The system was on show at PacPrint on the Anitech stand. The new range includes a natural maple wood veneer and kraft paper finish. At a time when operating with an environmentally friendly focus is becoming increasingly important, this new range of natural edging gives substrate manufacturers and wide format display professionals the opportunity to maintain an eco-friendly image, whilst delivering added value through these recyclable products.

The kraft paper finish is made of two layers of paper thermally fused together, to offer rigidity needed to apply it to a variety of display boards. This edging can also be painted with low VOC paint if desired.

Drytac’s edge finishing system not only protects substrates against edge damage and warping, but also eliminates the need to keep a large stock of different colours boards, as it facilitates application of edging materials in a wide variety of colours and now a variety of natural recyclable finishes.  The DES-4 Foam permits edging on boards of a thickness ranging from 5mm to 45mm, along with both foam and solid core-centred display boards, such as Gatorfoam®, Forex, MDF, foamex and chipboard. This new natural range also complements the machines ability to be used on the increasingly popular eco-boards such as

X-Board, BeeBoard and many others.
