Antalis to focus on sustainability

Antalis to focus on sustainability

 As a leading European distributor of paper, packaging and visual communication products, Antalis has long since recognised that the promotion of sustainability is one of its most important objectives.

At the forthcoming Print Show 2019, which will take place at Birmingham’s NEC on 17th -19th September, Antalis will be underlining its commitment to green issues by supporting the Independent Print Industry Association (IPIA) on Stand E41, where it will showcase solutions that can be used across the full spectrum of sign and display applications, while also providing advice and guidance to visitors.

On the stand, Antalis will introduce NAUTILUS, a 100 percent recycled uncoated paper and board, manufactured by Mondi, which it first launched this summer. Visitors will be able to see both Nautilus Classic and a special SuperWhite version that is particularly suitable for use with digital printing technologies.

Also on display will be Triaprint, a 100 percent recyclable polypropylene product, which is also the latest edition to the Antalis sustainable range. Offering high rigidity, low weight and a smooth printable service, it is an environmentally friendly alternative to foam PVC, foam board and other rigid plastics.

 Another stand highlight will be Xanita Board, which has been a key product for Antalis during 2019. It is a sustainably engineered fibreboard that is manufactured from fibres recovered from recycled paper products, such as cardboard boxes. Xanita board is 100 percent repulpable and 75 percent lighter than MDF, thus making it cheaper and easier to transport and handle. In addition, it is also significantly stronger than honeycomb boards. It is specifically designed for use on digital flatbed printers, hybrid printers and CNC cutters and can be used in a wide variety of sign and display applications.

 In addition, visitors seeking high quality, sustainable papers, will be able to select from the Keaykolour, Rives and Olin products, all of which are made in Scotland and are available in an array of recycled and textured options.

 In recognition of the fact that assessing the environmental impact of a product and promoting such benefits to an end-user can be incredibly complex, Antalis has introduced its Green Star System, a simple five-star rating system that enables consumers, to see, at-a-glance, the green credentials of the products they are buying, while

if, once all of the options have been fully considered it is decided that the right media for a project isn’t necessarily the ‘greenest’ one, Antalis customers can carbon balance all of the paper and paper-based packaging that they require thought the relationship that Antalis has established with the World Land Trust to mitigate their environmental impact.

Mike Bennett, Antalis’ Marketing Manager for Print, commented: “We’re increasingly seeing clients and end-users who have high sustainability ambitions, but who lack the knowhow to make the switch to greener alternatives or to implement a business plan that limits the impact they make on the environment. We’re there to help. With our products, our expertise and our wider-market contacts we can help them to make sensible decisions without compromising on quality. With this in mind, we are looking forward to talking to visitors at The Print Show about all these issues and more.”
