The only raw material required for the production of wellboard is wood. This comes from FSC-certified, sustainable softwood stocks in Scandinavia.

The wood for our kraftplex and wellboard panels comes from FSC-certified trees in Scandinavia. The raw materials are processed in Germany and Switzerland. Unfortunately, for reasons of stability and shape retention, no fibers from waste paper can be added to the cellulose fibers.

In production, we work without the use of chemicals. This is not only particularly beneficial for the end user. It has another positive effect: The water that we use in production comes from a lake. Since it only comes into contact with cellulose, it can be filtered and returned. Of course, we continuously check the safety of this procedure. The electricity for our production also comes from hydropower plants, so we produce with green energy.

If you don't want to use kraftplex or wellboard anymore, you can dispose of it in an environmentally friendly way: Either you put the material on the compost or you dispose of it with the paper waste. kraftplex and wellboard are 100% biodegradable.

The material is available in four different profiles:

wellboard minimum, medium and maximum are characterized by a wavy profile. They differ in the wave height and width as well as the material thickness of the panels.

wellboard gamma 300 has a trapezoidal profile. This creates flat contact surfaces that make it easier to glue and screw to carrier materials as well as to attach assembly and fastening elements.

Basically, all wellboard profiles are real lightweights: the individual profiles weigh just 1.25 to 2.7 kg / m². This allows them to be transported in a relaxed manner and attached easily.

When the load is perpendicular to the wave, wellboard can carry many times its own weight. You can find the exact technical data and dimensions on our data sheet.

There are starter kits of all wellboard profiles in the dimensions 200x150cm for testing and building prototypes and for smaller applications.

The standard rolls have the following dimensions:

Wellboard minimum: width 200cm, length 440cm, height 4.5mm, thickness 1.0mm

wellboard medium: width 200cm, length 520cm, height 7mm, thickness 2.0mm

wellboard maximum: width 315cm, length 520cm, height 8.5mm, thickness 1.5mm

wellboard gamma: width 200cm, length 530cm, height 4mm, thickness 1.0mm

You can also order a free hand sample for all wellboard types.

As a rule, we ship wellboard as roll goods in the formats specified above and in untreated form. From 100m² we can make an offer for an individual cut. We would be happy to give you tips for cutting or processing. Just write us an email at info@kraftplex.com.

wellboard is used by stand builders, event designers and stage designers for a variety of projects. It is suitable for displays, counters, seating furniture, room dividers and design elements, among other things. Of course, walls can also be clad with wellboard. You can find these and other application examples in our gallery.

The material meets all the requirements for sustainable exhibition construction: as a purely natural product, it is completely biodegradable and, unlike many other materials, does not emit any unpleasant or harmful vapors.

Thanks to its warm and natural look, wellboard helps to create an inviting atmosphere. The look blends in wonderfully with colorful room concepts as well as elegant designs with muted colors. Applications from recent years make it clear how timeless the appearance of our materials is.

The rolls in formats up to 315x520cm are very light and yet stable. With a weight of 1.25 to 2.7 kg / m², they are perfectly manageable.

In terms of processing, wellboard can be combined very well with other wood-based materials. It can therefore also be processed by carpenters, which means that adjustments can usually be made by yourself or cost-effectively commissioned.

If left untreated, the wood-based material falls into fire protection class B2, and B1 can be achieved by impregnating with a fire protection agent. This ensures compliance with DIN4102-B1 for the use of organic building materials at events and trade fairs. The fire protection impregnation must be applied before any painting. This step is not necessary when using a special fire protection varnish.

wellboard is wonderfully suitable for sustainable, high-quality shop designs and for shop window design. Whether in the clothing sector, in the food retail trade, in the perfumery or in the gallery area: wellboard creates an inviting atmosphere everywhere.

The material gives you all your creative freedom: It can be covered with fabric, varnished or painted, but it also looks great in its untreated form.

Whether as a counter, sales display or as a complete wall cladding - the minimalist yet warm appearance enhances various different shop designs.

Especially users who value sustainability will find the perfect partner for their individual design concept in wellboard. The material is completely biodegradable. Short-term use can not always be avoided when it comes to shop design. With wellboard, this practice will not weigh too heavy on your green conscience. Above you can read about why wellboard is particularly sustainable.

The panels can be attached easily and with the help of different techniques. After impregnation with a fire retardant, wellboard complies with the standards of the DIN4102-B1 standard for the use of organic building materials.

All in all, wellboard is a material that makes your customers' shopping experiences more beautiful and sustainable in an uncomplicated and safe way. If you have any questions or ideas about shop concepts with wellboard, please send us an email to info@kraftplex.com!

Whether in the office, in the cowork space, in the reception area of ​​the yoga studio, in the hotel lobby or in the café - wellboard is inviting, warm and elegant. It can be used wonderfully in rooms with a lot of public traffic. The material has proven to be durable and hard-wearing in all applications. 

It is not only suitable as an element of wall or furniture cladding, but also as a base for counters, room dividers or seating. It can equally be the focus or subtly complement existing room concepts.

wellboard can be easily set up, fixed and moved and is therefore particularly flexible. DIY craftsmen have also been able to achieve great results with wellboard. Despite its low weight, wellboard can bear a multiple of its own weight when subjected to loads perpendicular to the wave. Hardly any other material is so characteristic and yet so versatile.

In terms of processing, wellboard can be combined very well with other wood-based materials. It can therefore also be processed by carpenters, which means that adaptations can usually be carried out yourself or can cost-effectively be commissioned. Here you can find our detailed processing instructions for wellboard for download.

In wet rooms and in the outdoor area, however, wellboard reaches its limits. Since the base material kraftplex is a fiberboard, it is possible that the material warps or swells. Therefore, no rooms should be designed with wellboard in which the material is permanently exposed to a lot of moisture. Sealed off with a surface treatment with boat varnish, a clear varnish for outdoor use or a thick layer glaze, it can be better adapted to fluctuations in humidity.

You can find application examples in our gallery and on our social channels Instagram and Facebook.

wellboard can be processed industrially in furniture construction. Therefore, series production is possible. In the same way, small carpenters or design offices can use wellboard to produce individual, one-off pieces in smaller quantities. In our gallery and on our social media channels Instagram and Facebook we have collected successful application examples. Whether as seating furniture or a table, as a headboard for the bed, as a front or base for storage furniture - wellboard is extremely versatile and, despite its light weight, extremely resilient and stable in the perpendicular to the wave.

In the case of a desired series production with high purchase quantities, it is advisable to contact us with a little lead time. Feel free to write us an email at info@kraftplex.com at any time.

wellboard can be processed like wood: it can be sawn, drilled, sanded and glued. We would be happy to advise you on suitable tools at any time. Call us or write to us at info@kraftplex.com.

If desired, the surface can be colored with varnishes, glazes, paints, oils and waxes. Since the material is absorbent, it should be sealed off with a barrier varnish before being treated with particularly liquid paints. This prevents the paint from sinking in too much.

Untreated, the wood-based material falls into fire protection class B2. B1 can be achieved by impregnating with a fire retardant. This ensures compliance with DIN4102-B1 for the use of organic building materials at events such as trade fairs. The fire protection impregnation must be applied before the paint. This step is not necessary when using a special fire protection varnish.

The panels can be printed using direct panel printing. Due to the curved surface, however, it is more cost-intensive with wellboard than with kraftplex. We would be happy to support you in your search for a suitable service provider. Write us an email at info@kraftplex.com.

Untreated wellboard can be cleaned with a dry cloth or a dry cleaning sponge for walls. Dirt can also be removed with an eraser or cleaning clay.

How much weight a piece of furniture made of wellboard can be loaded with always depends on the respective construction. In principle, however, the shape allows a (relatively) high load perpendicular to the wave.

Wellboard is not well placed in wet rooms or outdoors due to its absorbency. This is where the material reaches its limits. Sealed off with a surface treatment with boat varnish, a clear varnish for outdoor use or a thick-layer glaze, fluctuations in humidity can be better adapted.

The minimum order quantity for wellboard is a role. This is either a starter kit with 3 square meters or, depending on the type, a standard roll with 8.8 - 16 square meters. 

Of course, we would also like to give you the opportunity to experiment with wellboard in advance.

When it comes to simply holding wellboard in its different designs in your hand and comparing the different wave profiles with each other, we recommend the free hand sample with the different types of wellboard in 10x20cm.

If a larger sample is required, you can order individual wellboard types in 56x34cm. 

And if you really want to get started, there is also the wellboard starter kit with the dimensions 200x150cm. We can send the starter kits to you with the parcel service, which reduces the shipping costs. Starter kits are great for smaller projects and prototypes.

Shipping usually takes 7-10 days. We are always looking for the cheapest shipping options and determine the best conditions for every order. As a rule, they are around 80 euros for a standard roll sent by a shipping company. 

There are fluctuations in the shipping costs, especially for shipping addresses outside of Germany. If you send your order request by email to info@kraftplex.com, we can make you an offer and specify the exact shipping costs.

The smaller starter kit rolls can be shipped for lower forwarding charges by parcel service.

In the regular shop you can order the free hand sample and also the starter kits for the four different types of wellboard.

Starter kits contain smaller wellboard rolls measuring 200x150cm. These plates are suitable for smaller projects or for prototyping. They can be sent inexpensively as packages.

The large rolls are sent to you or your customers by mail order companies. Therefore we have to calculate the transport costs in each case and therefore these roles cannot be ordered via the shop. Write us a short email to info@kraftplex.com and we will be happy to send you an offer.
