|Innotech expands trail blazing range of recycled, PVC-free banner materials
Innotech Digital, has announced the expansion of its Vertex Marine range of PVC-free fabric display products made from fully recycled PET yarns, with two brand new products. Having been the first company to launch fully recycled PVC-free materials to market, the availability of these new products means Innotech now supplies fabrics made from recycled PET yarns for the majority of large format printing applications.
Kieran Dallow, Marketing Manager for Innotech Digital, says, “Using PVC-free products made from recycled materials has become an essential requirement for many more businesses and applications. Over five years ago Innotech saw the signs that PVC-free medias would eventually take over PVC materials and were the first to launch a comprehensive PVC-free media range. Two years ago, we also saw the increasing demand for materials made of recycled yarns, and were the first to launch a range made from recycled PET. We are continuing this innovation with an exciting new range of products that makes us the obvious choice for anyone looking for the best possible PVC-free materials for their graphic display projects.”
The new products are part of the Vertex Marine range of 100% polyester fabric made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. This means the Innotech Vertex Marine efficiently conserves natural resources and reduces the burden of single use plastics on nature – especially marine life. They do this without losing any of the qualities of a virgin polyester yarn, to ensure there is no compromise to a quality print finish when using dye-sublimation, UV-C or Latex printers.
Dallow adds, “We believe Vertex Marine is one of the most eco-friendly print materials the wide and grand format print trade has ever seen. These products are ideal for large tension displays, promotional textiles, such as table cloths and flags, exhibition and stage backdrops and a range of frontlit applications.”
The new PVC-free fully recycled products from Innotech
The Vertex Marine range currently includes the R-PET Display Textile, which is a 100% recycled polyester fabric that is fire rated to both B1 and M1. It is ideal for display frames, pop-up systems or table clothes. It was recently complemented with the addition of the Vertex Marine R-PET Recycled Flag Textile is a 110g/m2 material that is fire rated to B1 and is ideal for flags applications.
The latest to arrive includes Vertex Glacier R-PET Backlit Display Textile, which is a 180g/m2 material designed for backlit tension fabric displays. Fire rated for B1, it is ideal for high traffic areas where point of sale of information signage is required, such as retail spaces, airports car showrooms and museums. It is completely crease free for easy application and provides a consistent diffusion making it an excellent option for backlit applications.
Vertex Texture R-PET PVC-free Coated Polyester Grey Back is a 240g/m2 is another addition that is fire rated to B1 and ideal for one piece wall coverings, hanging displays, exhibitions and canvas frames.
Kieran Dallow concludes, “All of our Vertex Marine products are made using recycled plastics. It takes approximately 10 plastic bottles to produce one square metre of fabric. With width availability up to 3.2m, that’s an awful lot of plastic being recycled thanks to Innotech.”
