Starflex will launch a digital printable light banner range, Starflex ENVI FLEX, during FESPA 2010 in Munich, Germany. Beside the already launched recycled banners range Discovery and of the phthalate-free, without toxics content high performances banners range PURE, Starflex is introducing the new non-PVC banner ENVI FLEX range. It includes Starflex ENVI FLEX SLV GLOSS 320µ, Starflex ENVI FLEX SLV MATT 320µ for solvent and eco-solvent inkjet printers, and Starflex ENVI FLEX UV MATT 260µ for UV inkjet printers.
ENVI FLEX is a range of weather resistant light weight printable media. It is recyclable together with other Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) wastes through already established recycling channels (namely plastic water bottles are produced from the same).
ENVI FLEX non woven fabric is partly made from recycled row materials. The sustainability profile and analysis for the PET must not only take into account its recyclability, and the increasing use of recycled PET resin content in new products, but also PET's inherent performance characteristics: lightweight; shatter-resistant; safe; able to preserve stand weather conditions and other product characteristics on-shelf; and its suitability to be made significantly lighter without sacrificing performance for a variety of applications. Fundamentally, media exists in order to effectively deliver a message while preserving cost effectiveness, in sustainable manner. This is exactly what ENVI FLEX is about.
ENVI FLEX is light and easy to handle when installing displays. It also offers fair durability, water-resistance, tear-resistance and excellent flatness. ENVI FLEX is not limited to simple promotional banners applications, but also cover applications such as Roll-ups, Pop-ups, Y and X banners for indoor as well as outdoor applications.
The Starflex ENVI FLEX SLV are 100 percent embossed non woven polyethylene terephthalate fabrics that are coated with the new glossy or matte finish formula which, beside of the greener credentials, offer an improved printability with wider range of inks on more machines types.
The Starflex ENVI FLEX range is PVC-free, phthalate-free, heavy metals free, and fungicide-free.
