Xanita board offers new revenue streams and business opportunities for printers with digital flatbed printing and CNC-cutting capabilities. The closed cell design makes Xanita board significantly stronger than visually similar honeycomb board products. Its strength and denser core makes Xanita board ideal for structural applications such as point-of-sale displays, custom expo booths, shopfitting and signage applications.
Xanita board strikes the perfect balance between premium quality and eco friendliness, and its versatility ensures that there will almost always be Xanita solution for most projects.
Xanita board is a sustainable engineered fiberboard manufactured using fibers recovered from recycled paper products such as cardboard boxes. Xanita board is VOC free, 100% repulpable, 75% lighter than MDF and significantly stronger than honeycomb boards. Xanita board is designed to work with digital flatbed printers, hybrid printers and CNC cutters.

The Mohawk story begins in 1931, during the turbulence of the Great Depression, when George O’Connor took a chance and bought a bankrupt paper mill in upstate New York. Convinced that the mill and the craftspeople who worked there were worth saving, he strove to make paper that was as enduring and unique as it was well-crafted and beautiful. This purposeful foresight became a philosophy understood by four generations of the O’Connor family as they led Mohawk forward.
Today, that papermaking legacy encompasses the manufacture of fine paper and envelopes including signature brands Mohawk Superfine® and Strathmore® as well as proprietary treatments Inxwell® and i-Tone®. Mohawk has also assembled a comprehensive portfolio of speciality digital substrates, including wide format amd sheet fed materials which are best in class for all types of digital printing.
