Bye bye PVC hello unique sustainable print media from GGS EU

Bye bye PVC hello unique sustainable print media from GGS EU.

Gardiner Graphics Supplies Europe (GGS EU), the UK’s largest independent conversion facility in the lamination and print industry, announce a unique 100% PVC-free wide format print media for Latex and UV printing.

Having brought wide format print media manufacturing in-house with a newly installed coating line, GGS EU announce their first nod to sustainable products with WP300 PP. This new 100% PVC-free media has been designed with wall applications in mind but also provides the perfect solution for external signage and industrial label applications.

Recently appointed EMEA sales director Matt Littler says, “Now really is the time for every supplier to consider their corporate social responsibility and innovate ways to help consumers make more sustainable choices where possible.”

“The unique combination of polypropylene (PP) and the high-grab grey block out adhesive makes this a special addition to the GGS EU range.”

“We love that WP300 PP is made from recyclable polypropylene (PP), plus (and it’s a big plus) the manufacturing process of PP creates considerably less greenhouse gas than PVC.”

“PVC certainly has its place in the market, there is no denying that. However, in certain applications our WP300 PP helps consumers to create eco-friendly ‘wow’ factor print when PVC is just not an option.”

At Gardiner Graphics Supplies Europe, the team’s passion for their products is at the core of everything they do.
