Xanita Board is a sustainable engineered fibre-board. Manufactured with the use of fibres recovered from recycled paper products such as cardboard boxes. Xanita Board is VOC free, 100% re-pulpable, 75% lighter than MDF and significantly stronger than visually similar honeycomb boards. The boards core is made from 100% post-consumer kraft and sugar cane waste and is fully re-cyclable and re-pulpable alongside with normal paper waste. It is designed to work with all well-known digital flatbed printers, hybrid printers and CNC cutters.
The addition of the Xanita fibre boards range strengthens the position of Sentec International as a supplier of sustainable materials as an alternative for single-use plastic based materials.
