Amari Plastics has entered in to partnership with an Italian manufacturer, Imballaggi Protettivi, to distribute its range of eco friendly polypropylene sheets for the print, signage, fabrication and industrial markets. Marketed under the name of Bubble Print Board, the product comes in several different formats – however the essential core of the product is Polypropylene shaped as bubbles. The product is neither a solid sheet nor a fluted sheet but has a super smooth printing surface and is rigid and strong at thin gauges such as 3mm, 5mm and 8mm.
The product is manufactured by a lamination process that brings together the core of the product – the bubble shaped Polypropylene- and 2 solid surfaces of Polypropylene to form a sheet. The cell structure of the bubble allows the sheet to be manufactured at lower weights than other Polypropylene sheets and still retain a strength and rigidity which outperforms its natural competition. The surface is matt white but can be made with other colours or finishes: It is also corona treated to ensure maximum ink adhesion when printed and is suitable for both external and internal applications.
Due to the versatility of the production process and the durability of the Bubble Print Board sheets it is also used in industrial applications such as vehicle lining and noise reduction. It is available as standard in 3mm, 5mm and 8mm in white in 2440 x 1220 and 3050 x 1550mm. The market applications for the product include short to medium term signage, election campaign poster boards, stadia advertising boards, general external print and Industrial estate agent boards.
Because of its structure and being a Polypropylene sheet it is 100% recyclable; furthermore it contains a % of side trim and reworked material from the factory waste output making it even more friendly to the environment. The product can also be purchased in a flame retardant version and an enhanced UV resistant version. Amari Plastics, with its sister company, Recycled Plastics, will be happy to help you recycle the product after its usage.
