Of increasing concern, as well as potential legislation and regulation, is the use of PVC in the environment, particularly in areas where children are likely to be present, such as museums, restaurants, hospitals, and play areas.
In response to this need, as well as requests from print shops for an environmentally-responsible alternative to PVC laminates, LexJet offers 3 Mil EcoGuard Satin. The new laminate eliminates any concern an end-use customer may have about using a PVC product for their graphics program.
Moreover, 3 Mil EcoGuard Satin provides excellent image clarity and bond strength. Print shops get the best of all worlds with a high-quality, durable, economical, lightweight, and PVC-free laminate. It also provides archival-quality protection for more than 25 years indoors and six months outdoors.
"LexJet's 3 Mil EcoGuard Satin was a natural choice for us, particularly given our dedication to sustainable print production," said Paul Lilienthal, president of Pictura Graphics, based in Minneapolis. "One of the most important aspects of the laminate for us is how lightweight it is; it saves on both the cost and environmental impact of shipping."
LexJet 3 Mil EcoGuard Satin is made of a 2-mil high-performance polypropylene and a 1-mil water-based acrylic adhesive, which gives print shops a more environmentally-responsible material combination that's PVC/vinyl-free and contains no heavy metals.
It is available in widths of 38, 51, and 61 inches from LexJet's nationwide network of distribution centers, and comes standard with LexJet's 30-day money-back guarantee and free unlimited product support and service.
