Is it possible to make Vinyl Environmentally Friendly?
Vinyl is a hugely practical material that comes in many forms and is used in many different applications from flooring to coverings to sign writing.
It is just not possible to make vinyl recyclable nationwide at the moment so the majority of it goes into landfill, yet it is a product that we all need and use. But moves are afoot in making vinyl environmentally friendly.
But there are things afoot to make it more environmentally friendly and our major supplier, Grafityp have developed a new range called GEF (Grafityp Ecological Film). This vinyl doesn’t contain chlorine, plasticizers or solvents, so it doesn’t release harmful gases if it burns.
This new vinyl meets the ever stricter environmental regulations so it was with no irony that our first customer was Final Straw Solent. The logo you see here is made from GEF vinyl – lovely vibrant colour that won’t fade
