MicroGREEN Polymers, an innovative plastics company that develops economically and ecologically viable advanced plastics technologies to promote sustainable living. The new 20mil InCycle plastic sheets from MicroGREEN Polymers are available in 28x40-inch, 28x20-inch, and 48x96-inch, and web rolls. The InCycle substrate can be printed on offset presses with four-color process inks and UV coating. The basic InCycle brand sheet is made with up to 50% post consumer recycled content.
“Our end goal is to create a closed-loop substrate manufacturing system. In our process we take virgin and recycled PET plastic, extrude it, and, using our proprietary Ad-Air technology, create bubbles in it, which turns it into a very lightweight easily printed substrate with a solid, waterproof skin,” says Chris Jacobs, MicroGREEN’s director of marketing and product development. “The material itself is completely recyclable. We’ve created a sustainable alternative to solid plastic and poly-coated paperboard in packaging and graphic communication applications. We believe that our product will increase your sustainability scorecard rating, insulate you from EPR legislation, save you money with logistics, protect temperature-sensitive items, and offer a bright white/reflecting surface.”
