Recycling PVC Banner

22 Feb

At RMC Digital Print we are always keen to look at new ways of being more environmentally friendly.  We operate to ISO 14001 environmental standards and recycle where possible.  One of the main products that we print is PVC banner which is not an environmentally friendly material.  Or is it?
We have recently taken delivery of a front-lit biodegradable PVC banner that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.  It comes in widths of up to 5 metres wide and is suitable for banners, billboard use and display systems.  The material should be disposed of in landfill conditions where it attracts microbes that break down the PVC within three to five years.  It contains no toxic materials so won’t harm the environment whilst it breaks down.

This is an excellent environmentally solution and isn’t much more expensive than standard PVC.  We are currently running some test prints and are very happy with the quality of the print.  Although the product isn’t designed as a backlit it does illuminate well and has a good degree of transparency.  We also have a 100% recyclable banner which prints beautifully but would not be suitable as a backlit.
