  • Greenbarnes self-healing rubber pinboard

    Greenbarnes self-healing rubber pinboard

    Self-healing rubber pinboard material provides the ideal solution for those struggling to hammer drawing pins into the rock-hard surface of an old noticeboard or who are tired of breaking fingernails trying to remove notices.

    6mm thick and light grey in colour, Greenbarnes’ self-healing rubber pinboard is the ideal substrate for noticeboards. Drawing pins can be inserted and removed easily with no need for tools whilst posters are held securely. Even better, due to its “self-healing” nature, unlike conventional pinboard materials, the pinholes disappear when the pins are removed.

    Fixing is straightforward using any proprietary contact adhesive. Best of all, this self-healing rubber pinboard is completely weatherproof and hence is equally suitable for use on glazed and unglazed boards, even in a marine environment.

    Self-healing pinboard is supplied in roll form in widths up to 1250mm.
