Innovia announces new PVC-free films

Innovia has added to its RayoArt range of PVC-free self-adhesive BOPP films for display graphics with several new 60µm (230 gauge) films that are 33 percent thinner than the existing graphic films.

Innovia has introduced 60 micron non-PVC films for display graphics use.

These films have been made with recyclable PP materials and are said to be suitable alternatives to monomeric and polymeric calendared PVC films. They can be used indoors and for short term outdoor applications for up to two years. 

They are suitable for use with flexo and screen printing as well as UV and latex inkjet, though users will have to ensure the latex profiles allow for lower drying temperatures. They are available in clear high gloss, white high gloss and white matt films.

Richard Southward, Global Product Manager for Innovia Films, commented: “These BOPP films show good compatibility across a range of adhesive systems and offer clean and simple removability after use. The printable surface offers multiple decoration options giving vibrant colours and images. Our stand graphic at Labelexpo 2020 was produced using a HP Latex 310 press – printed and applied as a single 1.37m x 4.80m sheet. Our BOPP films as self-adhesive constructions, using thick 140gsm lay-flat release liners, have been certified as PVC-free options for wide format HP Latex printing”.

The films are available now, in both 2m and 3m rolls. Innovia wouldn’t comment on pricing, other than to say that they are competitive against calendared PVC. You can find more details from innoviafilms.com.
