notFOAM Corrugated Board
An eco-friendly artboard, mounting and backing board solution
Crescent’s notFOAM offers an environmentally-friendly mounting and backing board solution for all types of framing applications. These boards are white buffered, with an acid-free surface and natural kraft corrugation and backing. Each board is core comprised of E and B corrugated to reduce visibility of flute lines and provide better smoothness and rigidity during mounting.

Recyclable, Renewable, + Compostable
notFOAM can be recycled and reused instead of filling dumpsters and paying large dumping fees. Trees for paper used to make notFOAM are farmed cyclically as a crop while pulp fiber used to make notFOAM breaks down naturally and easily. Foam, however, will last for centuries if not properly disposed of.
Repulpable + Energy Efficient
Paper mills can efficiently use recycled material like notFOAM without a lot of treatment or energy-intensive processes. They simply add water, blend, and make more paper from it. Plastic foam is expensive, energy-intensive, inefficient to re-use and cannot be re-made into new foam due to the breakdown of carbon chains.
