Multi-Layer PVC Sheet for Sign & Display Applications
In the world of multi-layer substrates, new PALBOARD™ is an innovative sheet that’s like no other. Palboard combines the extra tough surface quality of solid PVC with the lightweight, easy-to-work-with characteristics of foam PVC. Its core is made with high quality recycled PVC, and the panel itself is recyclable, too.
PALBOARD has an ultra-smooth surface that offers excellent ink-adhesion for digital or traditional printing applications. It’s easy to fabricate, can be cold-bent with a v-groove cut, and offers good mechanical strength & excellent chemical resistance, making it ideal for a wide variety of interior sign, display, or other applications.
PALBOARD has been developed with important feedback from some of the world's most advanced digital flatbed printer manufacturers, such as Canon/Océ, swissQprint, and Mutoh.
A new breed of PVC.
Printers and advertisers will benefit from its extra tough, ultra-smooth surface for producing high quality signage and displays. PALBOARD is easily handled, cut and fabricated using conventional tools and equipment, and can be printed, painted or laminated.
Because Palboard has rigid surfaces on both sides, it offers better structural strength than standard foam PVC and easier workability than aluminum composite panels. A range of ticknesses allows the construction of a variety of displays.

Store in a protected, shaded, ventilated site, with no direct exposure to sunlight and winds. In outdoor temporary storage cover with opaque protective film, and avoid PVC films and heat-absorbing materials. Please note: Surface protective films that cover sheets are highly sensitive to heat and direct sunlight. Excessive heat and direct sunlight before taking off the film can cause that film to bond the sheet surface, after which it will not be practically possible to remove it from the sheet!
Why are there polyethylene films on certain sheets and should I peel it off?
The surface films in certain sheets, like Sunlite and Palsun sheets, are needed for protection against dirt and scratching, and also used to carry important information to the installer and final customer. The indication of the UV protected side that should be installed facing outwards is extremely important.It is recommended to peel off the protective films only after installation. In case this will not be feasible and the film will be peeled off before laying the sheets, it must be remembered to at least mark the UV protected surface, so that the sheet will not be installed inside out.
Note: wrong installation damages are not covered by Palram.Please also note: Surface protective films that cover sheets are highly sensitive to heat and direct sunlight. Excessive heat and direct sunlight before taking off the film can cause gluing of that film to the sheet surface, after which it will not be practically possible to remove it from the sheet!
Can the sheets be curved?
Yes. Sheets can be cold-curved and serve in arched shapes, provided the relevant Palram specifications for minimum radius in cold curving are followed. These specifications can be found in the Installation Instructions of the relevant sheets.
Solid sheets can be cold-curved in any direction.
Corrugated sheets can be arched so that the corrugations themselves are curved (lengthwise).
Multi-wall sheets can be arched so that the actual ribs will be curved (lengthwise).
Curving is not recommended across the ribs direction.
Palboard™ used to create a sturdy, scratch and impact-resistant POP display.
Using a combination of digital printing, v-groove cutting, and cold-formed bending techniques, Palboard™ was shaped into these unique trade show display podiums.
