In response to increasing demand from customers looking for more sustainable alternatives to plastic-based products, Antalis’ Visual Communications division has introduced Katz Display Board to its sustainable product portfolio.
Katz is an environmentally friendly alternative to the use of PVC and PUR foam boards for retail and POS sectors. Developed to withstand store conditions, including variations in temperature and humidity, it is ideal for the production of in-store POS advertising and display, signage and hanging signs, floor standing display units, counter-top displays, and shop décor and display. Its smooth white surface gives excellent print results on UV digital, screen and flatbed latex.
Paul Neale, Product Manager at Antalis said, “sourcing sustainable, environmentally-friendly products for our customers is a high priority for us and we’re delighted to bring Katz into our sustainable portfolio. It’s a great product that we have already supplied for use in retail displays for some leading names on the high street.”
A laminated display board, Katz has a core of natural groundwood pulp with coated paper liners applied either side with natural starch acting as the adhesive. It is manufactured in the Black Forest area of Germany using locally sourced PEFC-certified wood and environmentally friendly production techniques that include no bleaching or chemical processing. The factory employs a heat recovery system and two in-house hydro plants to maximise energy efficiency along with a closed water loop to conserve natural resources.
Because it is 100 per cent fibre-based, Katz can be recycled in normal waste-paper streams. If it were to end up in landfill, it takes little more than a year to break down.
Katz Display Board in 3mm and 5mm options and standard 2440 x 1220mm is available from Antalis for next day delivery. Bespoke sizes, up to 2650 x 1500mm, are available to order.
