Fully recyclable DISPA® paper board to be showcased at the Inaugural PRINTING United by 3A Composites USA

October 22, 2019

DISPA® graphic display board – 3A Composites USA’s newest sustainable substrate solution – will be showcased at the PRINTING United Expo Oct. 23-25 at the Ken Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. Show-goers are invited to stop by the 3A Composites USA Booth No. 7227 to view DISPA® samples.

DISPA® – a uniquely laminated structure of embossed formed paper that is 100 percent recyclable – was introduced to the Americas earlier this year.

DISPA® consists of a patented embossed formed paper core that is laminated on both sides with bright white, smooth paper surfaces – a unique composition that makes this paper board lightweight yet extremely rigid, strong and dimensionally stable. Signs created with lightweight DISPA® stay flat yet are easy to handle and hang. Manufactured with 100 percent Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®)-certified paper (FSC-C074317), DISPA® is fully recyclable.

(The FSC is a nongovernmental organization operating in more than 80 countries to facilitate responsible forest management in accordance with social, economic and ecological needs.)

DISPA® provides a flat, smooth surface that offers excellent printability in both digital-printing and screen-printing applications and is available in both 48-inch and 60-inch widths for large-format printing. DISPA® is easy to fabricate – even with hand tools – and can be die-cut and CNC routed. This formed paper board is ideal for pre-printed double-sided offset litho sheet lamination.

DISPA® is the ideal substrate for short-term promotional campaigns and can be used to create point-of-purchase and point-of-sale displays; hanging signs; window displays; tradeshow displays and exhibits; and three-dimensional displays. It’s also perfect for creating sophisticated packaging.

DISPA® originally was introduced in 2015 in Europe by 3A Composites following extensive analysis and profile testing to develop the unique embossed structure that forms this paper board’s central layer. This patented core and manufacturing process make DISPA® a uniquely stable board.

We at 3A Composites USA are pleased to offer DISPA® to our customers in the Americas as a fully recyclable, sustainable option in our continually expanding graphic display board line,” said Chuck Kunze, director, product management and marketing, 3A Composites USA. “DISPA® is the first all-paper graphic display board to feature a layered, embossed core with smooth facers, offering a high-quality appearance in signs and displays. With DISPA®, there’s no need to sacrifice graphic design for sustainability.”

“DISPA® has received an enthusiastic response as a sustainable substrate by the graphic display industry in Europe because it is fully recyclable and is manufactured with 100 percent FSC®-certified paper. Graphic designers and fabricators who specify DISPA® not only are selecting a unique lightweight, flat, rigid substrate for their signs and displays but also are contributing to the sustainable management of forests around the world.”

DISPA® graphic display board is available with a white formed paper core and bright white paper liners in the 3.8mm thickness and 48-inch by 96-inch and 60-inch by 120-inch sheet sizes.
