GENERAL
ULTRA BOARD is a lightweight structural panel consisting of a rigid polystyrene foam core faced on both sides by a smooth, moisture resistant sheet of solid polystyrene. The foam and facers are permanently bonded together. The face laminates have been specially developed to provide an excellent surface for painting, silk screening, photo mounting and vinyl lay up. Together with these properties and the ease and multitude of shaping methods make ULTRA BOARD an excellent choice for signage, photo mounting, exhibits, point of purchase displays and routed letters.
 
EXTERIOR USAGE
ULTRA BOARD panels are a strong, moisture resistant material. When exposed to long periods of very moist conditions, there is little change in either the face or the core. Exposure of unprotected faces to exterior conditions has no effect other than a slight bleaching. Ultra-violet radiation degrades unprotected foam. Therefore, any exposed foam should be protected with a good quality, pigmented water base coating or other U.V. barrier. Large panels should be well supported to protect against any bowing movement. Caution should be taken when using darker colored inks and paints. Dark coated ULTRA BOARD panels may blister when exposed to direct sunlight.
WARPING
Under most conditions ULTRA BOARD panels will not warp; however, they may bow under certain conditions. Potential for bowing is much greater in thinner panels and in full 4 ft. x 8 ft. unsupported panels or on panels that are treated differently on one side than on the other, e.i., coating panels on only one side or exposing one side of the panel to a higher heat source than the other.
ULTRA BOARD panels are manufactured and packaged flat; occasionally, however, a panel may tend to bow after unpacking. These panels should and can be corrected by inverting the panel on a flat surface and allowing it to remain inverted (1-24 hours) until the warping has dissipated. To insure maximum flatness, full wood frames edge glued to the perimeters of the panel should be sufficient. Extruded aluminum channels or wood frames to fit panel edges also work well. For extremely critical applications, a thicker ULTRA BOARD panel should be used. For panels where coatings cover 50% or more of the surface area, it is advisable to similarly coat the opposite side.
FACING SURFACES
Standard ULTRA BOARD panels have 0.015" litho grade high impact polystyrene facers. ULTRA BOARD is also available with 0.030" facers. Colored facers are available on a custom quote basis. It should be noted that this technical bulletin only covers ULTRA BOARD panels with the standard facer.
