What is Foamex®?
Foamex® is a lightweight mounting board which has a polyurethane foam core and is characterised by its light weight and semi-rigidity. Foamex is often used to mount work for Box (spacer) frames, tray frames or as a mounting solution for artwork that is to be hung directly on the wall.
Why should I choose Foamex Mounting?
Foamex is extremely lightweight and Foamex mounting is ideal for short term applications, as well as touring exhibitions and those wanting to achieve excellent dimensional stability on a budget.
We are able to offer Foamex mounts in 2mm, 3mm or 5mm thicknesses and up to a maximum size of 2 997 x 1 828mm (118 x 72 inches).
Direct to Foamex Printing:
We are also able to print your images or artwork direct to Foamex using our Direct to Media printing service. Printing direct to a substrate can often be quicker as it removes the need for a photographic print and is a popular choice for those looking to explore new creative possibilities. Foamex is just one of the hundreds of substrates we can print on to – find out more about our Direct to Media UV Printing here.
Foamex Mounts – Hanging Guide
We aim to turnaround orders for our finishing services within 8 – 10 days. Large orders are often subject to slightly longer turnaround times, please speak to us to confirm turnaround times prior to placing your order.
Both Foamex and Foamboard are exceptionally lightweight and ideal cost-effective mounting solutions. Foamex generally has a better strength to weight ratio than Foamboard – so it will not be as easily damaged, we generally recommend Foamex where mounted photographs or artwork will be exhibited multiple times.
