Edge Capping Techniques
X-Board Print is always best left with an exposed edge, for an eco-chic appearance, or one can apply a PVC edging shown opposite, using a hot-melt glue gun.
PVC edging is available for 10 and 16mm X-Board in white and black colours. Corporate Pantone coloured edging can be matched for production runs of 2,500mtrs.
