FESPA 2018


How far will Airplac®FOAM BOARD go ?

The FESPA show is the perfect opportunity for the Airplac® Team to meet new customers in the print industry, with the certainty that people have come from all over the world.


In Berlin, we met more than one hundred potential business partners. All were impressed by the creativity of our stand. The “beach, surf and sun” theme attracted attention. Several constructions exceeded 2 metres in height. Printed on Airplac®PREMIER and Airplac®CARTRIGE, the decors withstood the test of serious palpations and bustle on the crowded stand.


We were also proud to show our prototype foam board furniture, made entirely with our Airplac®VISUAL panels. Designed in close collaboration with Embaly from Villeurbanne in France, the two tables and 8 stools perfectly fulfilled their role throughout the show. This innovation attracted the attention of visitors, especially printers, for whom this customizable furniture is an excellent concept for temporary event markets.


All in all, it was a very satisfying show for the Airplac® team. We look forward to getting to know all of our visitors, and helping to expand the rigid, lightweight substrates  market with the unique expertise of Airplac®.





Creative World 2018 :

Craft and Fun for all Seasons !

For the Airplac® team, Creative World is all about expressing imagination. Every year we try to amaze everybody who visits our stand. In January 2018 we designed the stand around the theme “Craft for all Seasons”. It was a complete success in that almost every visitor took photos and commented on the wealth of ideas.


All the walls of the stand were covered with special Silver foam board panels and the 26m² looked double the size. Centre-stage was an enormous Box pallet - 2m50 x 1m50 x 1m30 in dimension. The 4 side panels with the lettering “Craft for all Seasons” were designed by Design Studio TRUC in Paris and showed all the Fun that can be had and communicated with our new Airplac® CREATIVE panel. (Three of the side panels were reserved by Customers who wanted to replicate the ideas in their Showrooms). On top of the box pallet, we presented amusing DIY creations that were that were made by our local artist, Régine Chaptal.


Our street-art partner, La Coulure collective in Lyon, joined in the fun by painting a series of panels on the 4 season’s theme and designing and painting a beautiful work of art to hide an ugly pillar on the stand.


We met many loyal customers and made new friends at the Show. Many thanks to all who participated and looking forward to seeing you again next year.



Airplac®CREATIVE :

a new fun board for DIY and painting enthusiasts


Do you know someone who dreamed of a foam board that they could draw on with markers or paint on with acrylics? Someone who wondered if there was a board that they could cut into different shapes and make rounded edges for artistic shapes? Yes everyone who wondered where they could find something that would be more robust than a sheet of paper and more rigid than a canvas has now got a solution at hand. The Airplac® team, specialists in traditional foam boards have invented a new Fun Board called: Airplac®CREATIVE.



Airplac®CREATIVE is a lightweight panel with a plastic surface that cuts easily with a cutter and even with a hot wire cutting tool. Rigid and robust, it is perfect for DIY and decorative activities. Its smooth surface is good for acrylic paint and all types of markers. As it is waterproof, it can be dunked or floated on aquatic surfaces – just be careful to use waterproof inks if you want a floating sculpture.


Airplac®CREATIVE is an extremely versatile solution for people who want to paint, draw, cut and create things. The 50x70 cm size can be cut to smaller sizes or two or more panels can be stuck together to make a bigger panel if that is what’s called for. Our local artist, Régine Chaptal, was completely taken by our new Fun Board and told us that it really inspired her DIY works on the 4 seasons theme.

The Airplac® Division at EMBALL’ISO is always focused on delivering quality products and services to its customers while simultaneously keeping its impact on the environment to a minimum and thus guaranteeing complete adherence to the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards.


The Head Office and central production site, in Saint Georges de Reneins in France has just completed the transition of its Environmental and Quality Management systems to the up-dated 2015 versions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Both certification audits were passed with flying colours in July 2018!


The renewal of the up-dated certification covers all the activities of the EMBALL’ISO Group both at the Head office in France but also in all the subsidiaries worldwide (the sites in Germany, and Great Britain are also certified ISO9001:2015).



Two standards : two challenging commitments !


The ISO 14001:2015 standard, is an environmental management system which enables the EMBALL’ISO Group to continually improve its environmental impact.



• The Head-Office and main Production site was built in 2008 and is completely equipped with geo-thermal heating and cooling systems thanks to a pump encrusted at the underground water table level and piping up to the surface into the site, with natural lighting at all possible locations and high performance thermal insulation in the building. Recycling of the different raw materials used: production waste, cardboard, wood etc. is a permanent activity at the production sites.


• The Airplac® foam board Division ensures that all paper is purchased from PEFC certified sources that guarantees sustainable forest management.



The ISO 9001:2015 standard, is a quality management system that is geared to the satisfaction of customers, the development of competitive advantages and the improvement of performance at all levels.


• The Airplac® Division at EMBALL’ISO Headquarters and the subsidiaries in Germany, and Great Britain are all certified ISO 9001:2015. This enables the group to ensure that all activities are organized along the same model, that best-practice is shared and that operational improvement plans are launched simultaneously.


• All group activities are covered by the scope of application of the standard and thus the same high degree of compliance is expected from all subsidiaries.
