Antalis adds new PVC-free options to its sustainable portfolio

Antalis adds new PVC-free options to its sustainable portfolio
Antalis has added three PVC-free materials to its ever-growing sustainable range, thus furth assisting its customers in their endeavours to use visual communication products that are kinder to the environment.

In 2021, Antalis outlined its sustainability commitment that aims for 75 percent of all visual communications products sold to be rated Green Star 3 or higher by 2030. Antalis’ Green Star System makes it easy for customers to identify sustainable products based on the raw materials used in the manufacture and their recyclability at end of life.

 Exten Opaque Polypropylene (Green Star rating: 3) is a PVC-free alternative for the production of POS/POP and display, cards, tags, labels, stationery and much more. 35 percent lighter than PVC equivalents, it is 100 percent recyclable and at end of life can be burnt without risk of toxic emissions. The products are coated in a unique primer that extends shelf life beyond that of standard corona treated polypropylene; it also offers significantly greater opacity, making it suitable for two-sided printing using UV offset, digital and screenprinting machines. It is available in two large format sheet variants:

Exten Opaque 99 – gloss and satin, sheets from 400 to 850 microns

Exten Opaque 100 – satin, has a black core for 100 percent block-out in a thickness of 220 microns

 Mondo PET-GAG (Green Star rating: 4) is a range of high-quality, clear polyester sheets that offer an environmentally friendly alternative to thin-gauge PVC. The sheet is made up of three layers: two G-PET outer layers and an 85 percent post-consumer waste recycled PET inner layer. It is 100 percent recyclable and chemically inert.

The premium surface of Mondo PET-GAG is ideal for use with UV offset, digital and screenprinting as well as die-cutting; and finishing. Available in sheets from 200 to 600 microns, it is suitable for a range of POS and display applications.

Paul Neale, Product Manager for Visual Communications at Antalis, commented: “The introduction of Exten Opaque and Mondo PET-GAG provides customers with an even greater choice when making product selections that will reduce their impact on the environment, without compromising performance or quality. Improving our range of sign and display materials with a Green Star System rating of 3 or more is a key focus for us, and we are looking forward to announcing further additions to our range over the coming months”.
