Texo Trade Services showcases new products

The stand includes two new products

Texo Trade Services (TTS) (1-C55) is showing a raft of products at Fespa Global Print Expo, including two new launches.

With its new Solar range, the Dutch print media and textiles manufacturer and distributor has introduced a set of six 100% PVC-free products that offer a sustainable and economical alternative to PVC-containing print materials.

The products are suitable for UV, latex, or eco-solvent inks and for outdoor or indoor use. They can be used for large banners, but also for seamless wallpaper or roll-up banners. TTS said some of the products in the range are easily weldable and available in widths up to 5m.

The second new addition is Flat strip PVC elastic Recycled. In collaboration with its supplier, TTS said it has “found a technical solution to recycle the PVC strip 100% circularly after use”. The flat strip can be recycled repeatedly and has the same properties as ‘virgin’ PVC flat strip.

Other TTS innovations on its stand include Blackback UV FR, a material with “superior blocking properties” that is suitable for UV printing and available up to 5m-wide. TTS said it is ideal for creating striking and long-lasting visuals.

TTS is also showing Blackback Soft Black FR, which is deep black on the front with a black ‘blackback’ on the reverse side. The black coating on the back ensures that the fabric is opaque, making it suitable for those requiring a large, deep black fabric without print. An elastic and supple fabric, making it suitable for textile frames, this product is available in 3.2m width.

Ingrid Kramer, manager of marketing and communications at TTS, told Printweek: “Fespa gives us the opportunity to meet our customers from various countries (we have customers in 60 countries worldwide). In addition, Fespa provides a stage to share our innovations with a large audience.

“We are excited to be part of this dynamic environment once again. TTS proudly presents a range of our newest and most advanced products, including the new Solar range and the introduction of our 100% recycled PVC strip.”

Fespa Global Print Expo runs until Friday (22 March) at the RAI in Amsterdam.
