CMYUK launches eco-friendly wallcover canvas

CMYUK launches eco-friendly wallcover canvas

CMYUK has launched its new UFABRIK Wallcover Canvas ECO, which is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles (rPET).

This new product, which achieves the difficult feat of combining robust ecological credentials with quality print reproduction at an attractive price point – a tripartite conundrum, that until now, has proved difficult to resolve – forms part of CMYUK’s growing own-brand portfolio of environmentally responsible products.

UFABRIK Wallcover Canvas ECO is a premium woven canvas that is ideal for use in art reproductions, single piece wallcoverings, display graphics and tension frame systems. It also provides the safety and security of B1 flame retardency, thus making it suitable for use in public areas. It is compatible with latex, solvent and UV ink technologies and is available in various roll widths up to 3100mm.

Producing yarn from plastic waste involves the collection of pre and post consumer plastics that are cleaned, chopped and melted into an extruded fibre and then spun into yarn to produce a variety of new UFABRIK textiles for the digital print industry in widths up to five metres wide.

And while the recycling of man-made materials often ends in landfill, this material is highly suitable for waste-to-energy incineration at one of several UK Energy Recovery Facilities (ERF), where it is transformed through clean and safe processes into renewable power for the National Grid.

Joel Wilcox, CMYUK Key Accounts and Textile Business Development Specialist, commented: “We are already seeing a great deal of interest in this material, and the fact that it comes in a variety of different widths further complements its versatility and usability.”

Michael Crook, CMYUK Commercial Business Director, added: “As we continue into Q4, we will be launching other products that fulfil the same performance and quality criteria as well as greater planetary care.”
