Sibu Design Boards

Offer flexible and individual design possibilities

Sibu Design Boards from OSTERMANN can be used as furniture surface, filling, wall covering or for display and trade fair stand construction. The eye-catching surfaces are inspired by the latest design trends in fashion, architecture, automotives or sports. They have a unique feel and look, while being easy to process for the expert, and can be used for a range of different purposes. The 100% PVC-free surfaces are produced exclusively in Austria. OSTERMANN supplies Sibu Design Boards with eye-catching textures as well as with leather or mirror surfaces.

Depending on the surface and the decor, they are made of the following materials:

  • polyurethane synthetic leather surfaces (PU)
  • polyester synthetic fur surfaces (PET)
  • metalized surfaces (PET)
  • special coatings (PET lacquer)
  • printed surfaces (print)
  • acrylic surfaces (PMMA)

All variants are not only optically outstanding, but have a unique feel as well. They match the highest quality standards and are particularly suitable for interiors.

Supporting materials and reverse side variants

Polystyrene, the Sibu Design Boards' basic material in the variants NA (non-adhesive) and SA (self-adhesive), is a thermoplastic material. Therefore, a slight expansion of the design board due to temperature change has to be considered. Bonding with PVAc - if possible - prevents this expansion and enables a flush bonding.

Depending on the design, the boards are available with different backings and support materials, which allows for different types of processing:

The non-adhesive design boards from the Deco Line, Leather Line, SibuGlas, Structure Line and Acrylic Line collections can be bonded with standard PVAc glues (white glues), e.g. our Redocol Kantol Greenline. The reverse sides of the boards have to be pre-treated for this (grain size 80). An exception are the boards from the SibuGlas collection which have a highly absorbing reverse side made of PU synthetic leather.

The pre-treated; non-adhesive design boards can be bonded with standard PVAc glues (white glues), e.g. our REDOCOL Kantol Greenline. The have already been pre-processed by the manufacturer with the Corona treatment and do not have to be sanded.. The pre-treatment lasts for three months.

Depending on the surface, the self-adhesive design boards have a reverse side coated either with high-quality acrylate adhesive or synthetic rubber. They can be bonded both to absorbing and non-absorbing substrates. Keep in mind to leave an expansion joint.

Design boards with antigrav backing consist of a light, innovative material that originates in the automobile industry and can be bonded flush, without the necessity of an expansion joint. Boards with an antigrav backing are therefore particularly suitable to be processed as a wall panel and can be tailored and further processed with standard cutting tools.

Abrasion resistance

Sibu Design Boards can be used for very different applications in interior areas. Yet, not every surface is suitable for every application. While the scratch-resistant SibuGlas boards are adapted to very high exposure - e.g. on horizontal surfaces - as well, surfaces like the nicely reflecting decor boards with little abrasion resistance are best suited for decorative walls with little exposure in shopfitting or project construction.

We have categorised the abrasion resistance (AR) as follows:

Very low abrasion resistance

Very low

Low abrasion resistance


Medium abrasion resistance


High abrasion resistance


Very high abrasion resistance

Very high
