If you are seeking perfection, then saveBOARD is not for you. Use a brand new product that hasn't been used to give you a flawless finish or look. However, our clients love using saveBOARD and appreciate the fact we can create something beautiful from everyday packaging waste that would normally go to landfill.

Paperfaced texture

Paperfaced 3 - TI_edited.jpg

What you need to know

  • The surface of our boards have a natural texture. The core of our board is made from shredded particles rather than a perfect sanded surface. It has a orange peel texture that replicates the shredded particles beneath the surface.

  • The textured surface is most obvious when directly next to a sanded plaster joint, which is perfectly smooth.

  • Options are 1) Full skim coat (level 5 finish) or 2) Use a semi-rough paint roller to closely match the texture.

What you need to know

  • Our boards are made on a continuous process however, each board goes through 3x individual presses. Each press can leave a visible press line. This is not a defect, just the tiny gap between one plate and another. The press line is more visible on our Fibreglass faced and Paperfaced products.

  • The saveBOARD Exposed internal lining is susceptible to longitudinal veins caused as the material is compressed.

Colour Variation

What you need to know

  • Colours can vary by +/- 10% intensity from one batch to another.

  • Every manufacturing run will be consistent, however if you need to buy more boards 2 months later it will be difficult to match.

  • We use recycled material, that can vary in colours. We can't control what consumers drink or eat so we process the material we have on hand. Different core colours, change the intensity of the colour. More lighter coloured packaging = lighter colour. Dark coloured packaging = darker colour.

What you need to know

  • Our Paperfaced internal lining is susceptible to air bubbles caused when steam is trapped under the paper surface. This does not mean the board is structurally weak; it just means the steam prevented the paper adhering to the core of the board.

  • If your saveBOARD product comes with any small air bubbles, we recommend either 1) sanding them out with P80 sand paper over the surface or 2) remove the bubble with a craft knife to cut away the paper before plaster stopping over the area or 3) Use a house hold clothes iron - put on highest temperature 'Linen' and iron area over bubble for at least 30secs should adhere paper to core.
