Airplac® the leading French foam board brand will be exhibiting
at the Creative World Trade Fair in Frankfurt from 27 - 30 January 2018.



It is the most important professional show in Europe for Fine art and Hobby craft markets. Over 330 exhibitors will take part and among them the Airplac® Team, who will launch the new Airplac®CREATIVE foam board.

Airplac®CREATIVE is destined to be the most versatile foam board ever. The core is a high density polystyrene foam which is very robust. The traditional surface liner has been replaced with a high-tech liner that is tear-proof, water-proof and is designed to be painted on. It has excellent cutting properties. Hot wire cutting tools as well as standard cutters can be used. From designers to ardent hobby crafters, all will agree that Airplac®CREATIVE is a lightweight panel that brings foam board into the 21st century.


We will also present two other new foam board panels. Airplac®FIXTIC is a new self-adhesive panel, which is pH neutral and extra rigid, enabling over-size documents up to 1.5 x 3 metres to be laminated onto it. The other new panel is Airplac®BLACK PLUS, a 10mm thick extra rigid panel with solid black foam.


We would love to meet you in Frankfurt  in Hall 4.1, stand J10. The Airplac® stand has been designed around a 4 seasons DIY theme with a magnificent range of objects created especially for the Show using Airplac®CREATIVE panels.

FESPA 2017 : The Airplac® stand was a Show-stopper with its eye-catching and intriguing décors…



As ever, the Airplac® team participated in the FESPA trade show. The FESPA is the biggest international event for wide format covering both silk screen printing and digital imaging.



The Airplac® brand launched 3 new rigid foam board substrates. Airplac®PLASTIMO, which has very qualitative print results. Airplac®FIXTIC is a self-adhesive panel with excellent dimensional stability, and Airplac®CARTRIGE is an extra-rigid panel with a very good price / performance ratio.


The stand was devoted to creating a New-York atmosphere with colourful sophisticated decors. Visitors appreciated the printing and the cutting quality of our panels. Some decors had strips of led lights inserted that flickered with multiple colours. Visitors noted that the Statue of Liberty  - more than 2 meters high- kept its shape all during the trade fair. A trio of ladies with hand bags, printed recto-verso and with printed high and low pedestals to create a 3D effect: a really stunning visual impact. No wonder that the early bird customers grabbed at the chance to have these decors sent on to them for their showrooms.

Many thanks to the Lipps Pro printers in Lyon for the great job printing and cutting these décors on their Arizona printer and Zünd cutting machine.


Let’s rendez-vous in May next year, in Berlin, for the 2018 FESPA.





Creative World 2017 : New Street panel in New York decor !


The Airplac®Team had great ambitions for the Creative World Show in Frankfurt. The whole stand was devoted to the launch of the Airplac®STREET panel for street artists and the world of graffiti ! As New York is the erstwhile capital of Street Art we decided to spend the show in the ambiance of the Big Apple and every décor was made with Airplac® foam board ! Our panels were perfect for expressing our ideas ! Robust, lightweight, perfect for digital printing and cutting as well as spray painting and markers by the best brands… All the qualities that are perfect for a magical trade fair stand – the artists among us were amazed at the result.



We met hundreds of people – visitors, loyal customers and artists. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm that is so inspiring!

We look forward to a great year together and RDV again in January 2018!
