Airplac® foam board surfing successfully at FESPA!


The Airplac® team returned to exhibit at FESPA in Munich meeting over 200 customers and prospects from 50 countries during the week!


Our successful surfing stand design gave visitors a chance to smile and think about summer holidays. The colourful fun theme stopped people in their tracks, proving once again that when Airplac® foam board meets creativity, great printing and cutting competence, it’s a perfect solution to grab attention.


Our colourful and eye grabbing design showed off the full potential of using Airplac® foam board for visual merchandising projects, exhibition graphics and window displays.


Making its debut at this year’s exhibition was our new Airplac®PRINTFOAM. This new 100% recyclable panel was the show stopper, ticking all the right boxes for companies with a commitment to sustainable development. This new light weight panel provides the user with a smooth white surface with an anti-static agent ideal for digital printing. Airplac®PRINTFOAM is available in 10mm and suitable for indoors or outdoors.

Airplac® and EMBALL’ISO renews ISO 9001:2015

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 standard.


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. 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).



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.

CreativeWorld 2019


Once again the Airplac® team returned to exhibit this year at Creativeworld. This international exhibition is the biggest and most important trade fair for the fields of
hobbies, graphic artists, arts & crafts and decorative handicrafts; the ideal place to show off our creative foam board ideas!


This year our stand was encased in a foam board brick wall, which created an urban rustic atmosphere; this was a perfect for exhibiting the launch of our step by steps and showcasing our Airplac®STREET.

Our eye grabbing huge Rhino showed of what could be done on our Airplac®STREET panels, painted by a leading French graffiti artist La Coulure; drawing many visitors to the stand.

The launch of our Step-by-Step guides went well and got many visitors thinking just what you can do with foam board; from crafters to home décor specialists they all love the ideas shown.

We will return next year for Creativeworld 2020, to make another impression with Airplac® foam board!



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.
