New PVC-free products are helping to meet customer demand for environmentally friendly substitutes for traditional plastics. Antalis has added three PVC-free materials to its ever-growing sustainable range, helping customers to use visual communication products that are kinder to the environment.

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

Mondo PET-GAG (Green Star System™ 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% post-consumer waste recycled PET inner layer. It is 100% recyclable and chemically inert.

The premium surface of Mondo PET-GAG is ideal for UV Offset, Digital and Screen printing; die-cutting; and finishing. Available in sheets from 200 to 600 microns, it is suitable for a range of POS and display applications.

Exten Opaque Polypropylene (Green Star System™ rating: 3) is a PVC-free alternative for the production of POS and display, cards, tags, labels, stationery and much more. 35% lighter than PVC equivalents, it is 100% 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 Screen print 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% block-out in a thickness of 220 microns

“The introduction of Exten Opaque and Mondo PET-GAG gives customers 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 more additions to our range over the coming months.”
